Angela comes to Sculpt with a background in music and dance. In college, she studied music and performed with a lyrical dance company before earning her degree in Apparel Merchandising. After leaving her career as a Corporate Recruiter to stay at home with her two boys, she began searching for a fitness routine that would give great results and also feed her love for dance. Once she experienced barre and saw the quick results it delivered, she knew that was exactly what she was looking for! Barre gives her a workout that not only tones and sculpts her body but also incorporates her love for dance and movement. Moving from a client of Sculpt to an instructor was an easy decision! In Angela’s classes, you will sense her passion for helping people achieve their greatest results. When not in the studio, you will usually find Angela busy with her boys’ activities, however, when she does find the time, she enjoys traveling with her family, shopping (of course), or enjoying a nice bottle of wine with girlfriends.
Cetina brings her lifetime of dance training to Sculpt Tulsa. Dance began for Cetina at age 5 and continued competitively throughout high school. She was accepted into the dance program at Long Beach State in Southern California where she minored in dance. Cetina moved to Tulsa with her husband where they began their family with, her 3 stars, Charles, Carter, and Taylor. Throughout those early years of having and raising babies running became her number one method of exercise. Missing ballet she longed for the day she would be able to meet the barre again. When she found Sculpt Tulsa, it was an instant fit! Once again she was developing the strength and lean muscle lines she had as a dancer. Teaching for her was the next step. Cetina absolutely loves sharing her passion for barre and helping clients obtain their fitness goals. Although rare, in her spare time you may see her on a run with her dog Addy, working in the yard or she’ll might be tucked away doing a bit of online shopping.
