Marina grew up in Bondi, in a Brazilian musical household with a father specialising in Afro-Brazilian music, martial arts and dance! 
Taking dance classes and training in various movement practices since she could walk, she has performed and taught various dance styles throughout her life, traveling throughout Australia as a choreographer and dancer, and later specializing in Afro-Brazilian movement and dance.
Her passion for rhythm and movement shows through the enthusiasm and energy she brings to class. 
A deep desire to share the joy of movement and music she feels with others, has driven Marina to be a caring, attentive and fun instructor! She will make you sweat and laugh from warm up to cool down!
