Jessie Alegría

Jessie Alegría, recently awarded Boston’s Best Fitness Instructor of 2017, has dedicated the last 13+ years to teaching dance and fitness to students of all ages and abilities. Jessie believes in creating a fun, high-energy environment that is also inviting, supportive and judgement-free.

“I want my students to feel comfortable exploring new movement, to feel confident in adding their own style and flavor to a move, and to leave class with a little more swag in their step. Nothing makes me happier than hearing stories of my (once shy) dancers breaking out into choreography at the club, at a friend's wedding or even at grandma's 90th birthday bash.”
