ABOUT AMY

Booty obsessed & always dancing!

Founder of Rooted in Relevés, certified Barre instructor, and Dancer, Amy's background is rooted in movement having danced for most of her life . She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Voice and Dance from the Irish world academy, with training in Contemporary dance, African dance, Ballet, and many other styles. Her love of dance led her to find Barre. After teaching Barre in studios for three years, the pandemic hit and studios closed! So she began her passion project 'Rooted in Relevés' which combined her love of Barre with her love of nature and outdoors. This evolved into teaching her own classes both online and outdoors. She also teaches classes at the Immersive Van Gogh exhibit and at the University of Toronto.  You can expect a deep burn with some sneaky cardio and an undertone of dance in her classes!

ABOUT TAMERRA

Cardio queen & ray of sunshine!

Tamerra’s passion for movement was sparked as a young dancer. She has trained, performed and choreographed in Acrobatics, Ballet, and many other forms of dance for over 20 years. She is an alumni with the Edge Performing Arts Centre in Hollywood, California, and a Kinesiology graduate from York University.

Her Barre fitness journey began in 2017 where she trained locally with Barreworks in their Barre Certification Program here in Toronto. She later became a barre instructor at Harmony Fitness & Barrebelle (where she met the lovely Amy Walsh!).

Tamerra is thrilled to join the Cocktails & Relevés team while bringing her enthusiasm and expertise to the table.

Her style is energetic, anatomy and injury informed, and delivered with lots of love, creativity and of course, that classic barre burn!
