About Michelle Abbruzzese:
Michelle was diagnosed with 2nd stage breast cancer in May of 2005. Determined not to let cancer beat her, she sought out alternative ways to beat this deadly disease. She opted for optimizing her nutrition, working with specialists in alternative medicine, and of course, fitness. Michelle is a former NFL, AFL, CBA, USBL, WNFL, AHL cheerleader and brings her spirit and extensive dance background to Norwalk's "SoNo" area. Michelle was honored by the New England Patriot Cheerleaders during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Michelle has shared her story with many and it has brought other cancer survivors to Work It to also help keep them fit and feeling confident.
Work It Dance and Fitness has partnered with The C.H.A.I.N. Fund and The Breast Cancer Research Foundation to raise money for breast cancer survivors.
ABOUT WORK IT
Michelle's goal is to empower it's clients to build their confidence, their sense of community, and of course, their health and well being. It is the only studio of it's kind in Norwalk to offer aerial arts, burlesque jazz, bellydance (to name a few), and clients are seeing true benefits.
Here's a few quotes (sources can be verified on social media):
"Thank you for providing the training I need to strengthen and articulate at my first ballroom competition without daily practice with my professional partner. 2.5 months of hard work paid off and I achieved top 3 placements for all three championships. Never underestimate the power of cross training." Kitty S.
"This was my very first belly dancing class and I had a great time. The instructor was amazing and talked about the culture behind the dancing as well. Over all great experience and I would back any time." Theresa C.
"Work It has become a second home to me. I never would have expected to walk into a dance studio and be treated so wonderfully by the owners and instructors, but here, everyone is so kind. And the classes here are one of a kind. I never thought that I would ever do burlesque, chair, or pole dancing but Michelle, Paula, and Erika make it so fun and easy that i forget that i'm working out. Come down and give work it a try! You will not be disappointed." Kate R.
