Originally from Seaside, Kaleena Hurlburt danced in the Bay Area for over 10 years most notably with (the former) Ballet San Jose. Resumé highlights include many of Dennis Nahat’s original works with featured roles in The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and a Midsummer Night’s Dream, as well as works by George Balanchine and Anthony Tudor. Kaleena was drawn to the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® while dancing professionally because of the elegant manner with which it strengthens, mobilizes, and conditions the body. The foundation of her studies have been with Master Trainer and studio owner of San Francisco GYROTONIC®, Debra Rose where she also worked before recently returning back to the Peninsula with her husband and two young children. At San Francisco GYROTONIC®, Kaleena worked extensively with aspiring professional dancers in both the Alonzo King LINES Ballet Training Program and Alonzo King LINES Ballet BFA at Dominican University. In addition she has also trained company members of San Francisco Ballet, Smuin Ballet, and Alonzo King LINES Ballet. Kaleena is eager to share this amazing system with dancers on the Monterey Peninsula.
