A rare combination of dancer and boxer. While cross-training for her professional career as a dancer, she discovered her love of boxing and developed a deep background in a variety of modalities. Prior to joining bande, she was an instructor at JABS by Gina and trained with George Foreman III in boxing instruction at EverybodyFights, where she entered the virtual fitness arena on EBF.live. She also danced with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater at New York City Center, earned her dance degree from The Ailey School and Fordham University, and performed in "The King and I" on Broadway and on the cast of the show's national tour. Mindy’s classes are dynamic, set to the beat of vibrant music. Her energy and expertise come through the screen. You will be motivated, energized, and, ultimately, exhausted in the best way possible.

"Movement is a gift and I am so excited to grow stronger with each member of the community."

Just finished a Strength and Conditioning class with Mindy and I feel great! Her energy is so infectious and she has you smiling the whole class, even while doing push-ups! I also highly recommend her Cardio Boxing class as she is so attentive to detail to make sure your form is correct and your punch is effective.

Mindy is the best! I love her Cardio Boxing classes and how she is so attentive to form. She encourages and pushes each of her students with empowering energy. Her Strength and Conditioning classes target every muscle and leave me feeling toned and challenged. Her workouts are always a bright light in my day.
