Chris has been with the WAWM Recreation Department for just over 4 years, starting with one Aqua Zumba class and now expanding to much more. He is a huge asset to our Department. Chris is an instructor that is running classes that participants enjoy and he enjoys offering classes the community/participants would like to participate in. He often changes the classes up each session which brings variety and spice to our fitness program. Many participants have said, “We have a “Gem” in that Chris”. 
Thank you for all you do Chris!

My passion lies in dance, and I have studied many forms of dance ranging from Egyptian Belly Dance, Ballroom Dance, Ballet and I own a dance studio located in Downtown Milwaukee. When I am not teaching, practicing or choreographing, I enjoy camping, reading, and spending time with my three dogs.

My favorite part about working for the WAWM Recreation Department is the freedom that I am allowed in the classes that I offer each session. Everyone is very easy to work with. Other than enjoying seeing the participants in my classes achieve success, I enjoy creating a social atmosphere for my classes where friendships are formed by organizing breakfasts or lunches at the end of a session, or even gatherings at my home.
