Biography

Yenny has more than 19 years of dance experience and has been a certified fitness trainer for two years. She is a director of Singapore-based dance consultancy, L.A. Dance Connection, which she co-founded in 2003. Her interest in fitness has also led her to be a Master Trainer with Los Angeles-based fitness company, Motion Fit.

Yenny is a firm advocate of fitness education and cross training for dancers. In collaboration with Lionel Araya, founder of Motion Fit, she helped develop Motion Fit Dance Specific X Training, a programme which aims to increase work capacity through body weight and resistance training for performance-based results to improve movement efficiency.

Yenny has taught at various institutions in Singapore, Indonesia and India, namely the Singapore American School, LASALLE College of the Arts, California Fitness, Fitness First and Celebrity Fitness. Having worked with children, teens and adults, she has extensive knowledge on teaching methodologies and approaches. Her beliefs in positive reinforcement are catered to meet students’ diverse needs in physical fitness levels, ensuring safe applications and autonomy in individual programme designs.
