About Us

We are beauty in motion. Discover a workout routine that feels anything but routine.

Gemma Santamaria has been dancing since she was 3 years old, and has studied ballet, jazz, lyrical, modern, hip-hop and tap. As she grew up dancing under the direction of Paulette Harwood, after graduating she wanted to come back and teach at the studio. She has been teaching children over the past 3 years, and adults for the past year. Gemma holds a B.A. in Communications from UMass Amherst. When she isn’t dancing or teaching class, Gemma co-writes for her beauty blog; www.yourbasicbeauty.com. She also enjoys spending time with family, her friends, and her dog.

​Gemma is a bundle of energy (it’s all that dancing)! She keeps up-to-date with dance by taking class and talking with other dance professionals to refine and improve her own teaching techniques in a continual effort to offer the best classes to all of her students.

Dancing has played such an important role in enhancing my spirit, confidence, and overall well-being. Not only is dance an incredible workout for the body, it also crates such a positive and joyful mindset. I love bringing the joy of dance to adults, and I’m so happy my students keep coming back for me! – Gemma
