Sheyla Cintron was classically trained in ballet. After graduating high
school in Puerto Rico, I went to the Hartford Conservatory and got an associate
degree in nutrition essentials, Dance pedagogy and performance. While I was in
Connecticut I danced with the Hartford Ballet, Connecticut Ballet and spent a
summer dancing with the Bolshoi Ballet of Russia. After graduating I moved to
NYC were I got a full scholarship to dance at Steps on Broadway and later on I
taught beg. and int. jazz in their youth program for a few years (when I wasn’t
touring). I also taught ballet in Puerto Rico and master classes to youth
throughout the island.
Some dance credits include Sleeping Beauty (Diamonds), Fire bird, Paquita , West
Side Story (Anybodys), Cats (Victoria) and many more. Fitness credits include
certifications from NASM, Cardio Barre, TRX, flex shaper videos, Yoga works
barre works, dance works and sculpt works and training hand in hand with Billy
Blanks (Tae-bo) for many years.
I became certified in Pilates after getting mugged in the NYC subway and needing
physical therapy for my hip. Pilates was the only thing that helped me recover
quick enough to go back to dancing and also the only thing that helped correct
my severe scoliosis. After that, I taught Pilates in between shows and jobs.
