Originally from Auburn, Alabama, MaryKate grew up as a competitive dancer and always had an interest in staying active. In 2015, she moved to Atlanta, where she danced professionally and began working as a dance instructor for kids and adults. By 2019, MaryKate decided to move to LA after taking many trips and fell in love with the city. Later that year, she was at a dance rehearsal and ended up injuring her ankle so severely she wasn’t able to be active for months. Finally, once her ankle was strong enough, her physical therapist recommended Lagree as it is low impact but high intensity. MaryKate fell in love with the method right away and became obsessed. Later on, a few instructors recommended that she should get certified and start teaching Lagree and here we are! Lagree has changed MaryKate’s life mentally, physically, and she loves getting to share that with everyone she has in class.
