DJ Gray is a Certified Pilates teacher, Teacher Trainer for Pilates Mat Class and Pre-Trainer in GYROTONIC®.
DJ has been teaching Pilates for over 20 years in both California and New York. She began her movement training at the age of 7, as a competitive swimmer. She continued the sport throughout her college career, earning the title of a 4 Year All-American. In her final year of college, DJ found her passion in dance. To achieve a dancer’s physique and deeper connections that aids in dance technique, DJ turned to Pilates. The core movement technique of Pilates enabled her to establish a deeper understanding of dance, leading to a strong foundation, and knowledge in injury prevention and healing techniques.
DJ has worked on Broadway as a performer and an associate choreographer of several Broadway shows. She recently moved to Bloomington to join the staff at Indiana University, as a Professor of Practice teaching Musical Theatre dance to the BFA students. She continues to teach private Pilates and GYROTONIC movement at Lotus, an independent studio in Bloomington. She earned her Teacher Training in Mat Pilates from the Kane school in January 2020. She is teaching her first course at Indiana University this Spring, under the umbrella of the Kane school. Extending knowledge of skills and insight is a true passion for her. To pass on the art of Teaching is a dream realized.
DJ taught the first Core Muscle Anatomy and Comprehensive Mat training in the spring semester 2021 at Indiana University Bloomington. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
