Elease Sgarbossa

“Living an active, honest life is the best gift we can give ourselves and our families. I want to dance and move my body until I’m 100 years and beyond.”


Elease’s love of movement of any kind began early at age three in her first ballet class and continued through her years of training, including musical theater, ballet, jazz, modern, contemporary and her love, hip-hop.  Born and raised in North County San Diego, Elease has trained, choreographed and performed professionally in her hometown since that first ballet class. Her many credits include fitness productions, industrials and live music performances.

Elease has taught dance, movement and fitness since 1995.  She developed and directed The Magdalena Ecke YMCA’s dance program as well as the dance and cheer camp program. In 1998, she had the pleasure of growing the Frog’s Athletic Club Youth Fitness Program as Director, where she found her true love of bringing fitness, dance and nutrition to kids as young as three.

Using Pilates as a foundation, Elease has taught group exercise classes for adults in cardio dance of all disciplines, Pilates, sculpt and Bosu. Finding a way to teach integrated movement became her passion. Promoting injury prevention, she has developed a technique-based, safe anatomical alignment method of teaching both dance and fitness.
