Ciara Allen
Hey, y’all! My name is Ciara and I am a senior BFA Acting major here at Montclair. I’m so excited to be bringing Dance Fitness to Montclair State University. All my life, dancing, and athleticism have followed me in everything I do. Post-Montclair, I hope to dive right into the world of acting (film and stage) with support through teaching various dance and fitness classes. My goal with this class was to combine two of my passions and make them something that everyone can enjoy; Think Zumba with a hip-hop twist! This class is open to all levels so come and see me if you’re ready to turn up and get active!

Kimberly Anilonis
Hello my name is Kim Anilonis and I am a senior majoring in Accounting. A fun fact about me is that I have been teaching yoga since I was a junior in high school and I am on the club basketball team. My goal is for everyone to expand their practice and understand that yoga is not about flexibility of the body, but about flexibility of the mind.

Nina DiCesare
​​Hello my name is Nina DiCesare, I am currently a senior and am majoring in Earth and Environmental Science.  I have been practicing yoga for around 6 years and I specialize in vinyasa flow, hot fusion, and hot 26, along with some less traditional styles of yoga like aerial and acro. Providing comfort, happiness, and positivity through my teachings I want to ensure that my students feel welcome and comfortable in class. I want to emphasize that yoga is truly for everyone and is the perfect opportunity to be curious about who you are. “Yoga is not about touching your toes, it is what you learn on the way down.” -Jigar Gor

Sabrina Edgeworth
Year: Senior
Major: Biology
What brought me to teach fitness: I have always been involved in sports growing up and found joy in helping others better themselves physically and mentally. I found over the years that I really benefited from yoga and meditation and wanted to share this with others to help them find moments of peace and a healthy stress reliever in their lives.

Fun fact about me: I love hiking!


Amina Kolenc
Junior, Dance major.  As a dancer, I work intimately with my body and love to learn and explore different ways of moving. I also enjoy hiking and walking as a way to be in nature. I practice yoga myself, so I am excited to be able to share it on campus this semester.  My career goal after college is to dance professionally in a company and teach aspiring dancers.
