Lisa has been dancing for 18 years. She started her Freshman year in high school when she joined the drill team. She also performed with her high school cheer and competitive cheer squads. While dancing at Sierra College in 2005, she helped start the Dance Club in order to promote performing arts and build a better dance program. In 2008 she went to Hollywood to audition for a job with Tokyo Disneyland, which landed her a 2009 summer contract for 7 months. She relocated to Tokyo to be a face character performing in meet and greets and parades.
When Lisa came back home she set dance aside for a while and started running. She has ran 5 Half Marathons and one Full Marathon. As much as she enjoys running, her heart always leads her back to dance. She has always been in the best shape when she is dancing. To her it's a form of exercise that doesn't feel like working out because she loves and enjoys it so much.
"I really like [Studio Physique] because of it's dance and fitness background. It's high energy with fun people and good music. It truly is a no Judgment zone where you can work on yourself with like minded people and without feeling insecure."

She taught U-Jam at 24 Hour Fitness for over four years. In February of 2020, she became a certified Zumba Fitness instructor and plans to start teaching in the near future.
Danica first met Jenna at Robles Fitness (fun fact, the owners are Danica’s next door neighbor!) several years ago when “Dance Fit” was then called “Fit Hop.” She fell in love with Jenna’s warm, judgement free attitude, great music selection, and fun, flirty choreography. She followed Jenna to her new studio, Physique Dance Fitness, which has been a hub of happiness for so many. Danica has regularly attended classes, her favorite of which are Choreo Fit, Dance Fit, Hiphop, and Jazz Funk.
During the COVID-19 shelter in place, Danica started working on a playlist for her future Zumba classes and explored the art or choreography for the first time. She shared some videos with Jenna, who was impressed with her musicality and teaching style, and offered her a position as an instructor! Danica is extremely honored to be part of the Physique Dance Fitness instructor team and hopes to inspire others through her passion and personality.
