Lisa Moberly (lm)


Lisa has been dancing since the age of six. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Dance. While in college, Lisa spent two summers in New York taking classes with the Nicolas Lois Summer Intensive and Alvin Ailey School. During the academic year, Lisa taught children dance classes and became the Assistant Director of Turning Point Dance Academy in Stevens Point.


After graduation, Lisa danced professionally for Kanopy Dance in Madison, Wisconsin under Artistic Director Chris Stevens. After moving to Milwaukee, she began performing with DanceCircus under Artistic Director Betty Salamun. Lisa has helped create children’s shows for the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s Arts in Community Education (ACE) program; she also teaches master classes and continues to perform. Lisa moved to Chicago to continue learning and dancing. While living there, she did pick-up performances for individual artists and taught advanced modern to pre-professional students for Sherry Morray at Academy of Dance Arts.


Because of her exposure to Pilates in college, Lisa chose to complete an 800-hour teacher training program while living in Chicago. She trained with Gary Calderone, Kathy Grant, Michelle Larsson and Fran Ahrens. She has been fully certified since 1999. In 2007, Lisa’s love of movement led her to GYROTONIC® and in 2013, she completed her level one training to become a certified trainer. In May of 2017, Lisa completed a 10-month training for Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) and is now a certified MAT Specialist. Adding this skill allows Lisa to test range of motion in her clients and students, find limitations, and strengthen the muscles not functioning to their best ability.


Lisa is thrilled to be sharing these skills with students at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee Dance Department, where she teaches Pilates; the Milwaukee Ballet School; Danceworks, Inc., where she teaches a variety of styles and ages; and at her own studio, Flying Frog LLC, in Mequon.
