April’s love of dance started at a very young age. At the age of 15, she moved away from her family to pursue her dance training year-round at the Harid Conservatory in Boca Raton, FL and spent her summers with Pacific Northwest Ballet in Seattle, WA. After an unfortunate injury left her unable to pursue dance professionally, April returned home to focus on her education. In 2014, she relocated to South Florida with her husband and two boys. April quickly found Barre as a great fitness program that brought her back to her dancing days. It was then that she realized fitness was her calling. April is currently certified in Barre, PiYo, as well as Hot Pilates. As Lead Barre instructor she has developed two training curriculums that are currently offered at Evolution Yoga.
April Clendenin instructs the following:
