Seija C

Seija has been dancing all of her life. Growing up performing, competing and coaching Rhythmic and Aesthetic Group Gymnastics was a central focus of her life for over 20 years. The absence of Gym life left a void she was not sure could be filled. Then she walked into Brass Vixens. 
 
After picking up some extra hours helping out at Queen West in the Fall of 2013, she started to take class. Inspired by the the Vixens she met in the studio, she pursued further training and became an instructor herself. The only thing she loves more than Vixen life, are the Vixens themselves! 
 
Seija Manages the Queen West Studio and teaches Pole, Chair, Aerial Fitness, Flexy and Fitness classes.
