Phoebe Higgins, PMA GOLD CERTIFIED, studied and performed with the School of American Ballet, Simonson technique of Jazz Dance, Kevin Wynn Collection, among others.
From 1967-68 Phoebe also attended ballet classes taught by Romana Kryzanowska, who also taught at the Pilates Studio. Phoebe was reintroduced to Romana in 1976 at SUNY Purchase and began studying the Pilates Method to help strengthen a spine weakened by scoliosis. In 1980 Phoebe went to work at the Pilates Studio under Romana's guidance. When that studio closed in 1989 she began work with Dr. Howard Sichel in his chiropractic office. That work evolved into Power Pilates. In 1998 and 2005 respectfully, Phoebe was asked by the School of American Ballet and Ballet Academy East to organize a programs for their teenage professionally geared students. The success of these programs is evident in the infrequency of injuries and dancers’ continued strength. 2006, Phoebe left Power Pilates and became a freelancer for both individual sessions and workshops. With the international recognition of the work of Joseph Pilates ever widening, Phoebe would like to see everyone taking sessions and making the world a better place through the freedom of the body.
