10 Jan Instructor Spotlight: Meet Chantal!
Introducing Chantal Deeble! With decades of experience under her belt, we’re thrilled + thankful to have her join the kinected crew. Read on to learn more about her career + some fun facts, too!
Q: Fave muscle?
A: Gracilis – my fave mainly because it’s name evokes grace, but also because I’m a runner, and this often overlooked long slender member of the adductor group is a quiet but essential contributor to good form and well, graceful technique..
Q: Preferred prop?
A: My trusty foot roller – by my side since touring days – at least a hundred rolls per foot and I’m good to go!
Q: Fun fact about you?
A: I’m Canadian – and we’re pretty fun. Funny. Polite. Fun.
Another fun fact – I’ve lived in NYC since 2000, moved here with 2 suitcases to dance w/ dream dance company and never looked back – but I only just became an American Citizen on Dec 1, 2017.
