Company history

Mind Body Dance Fitness For Personal Enrichment was founded and started in 2009, by Jan and Sherrie. They chose to create this website in order to show others that transformation is possible for all of us, if we choose.

Jan and Sherrie had each gained 40-60 lbs. of excess weight over the years.  Sherrie was highly addicted to sugar, sweet tea, soda, pies, cakes, and cookies. You name it, she ate it! An addiction to sugar is one thing I have to be aware of
every single day..says Sherrie. It would be so easy to step into the way I use to eat. I can not have a pie in my home or ice cream in my home. Just knowing there is more makes my body crave more the next day and the next day. I feel better when I treat myself to a smoothie instead, Sherrie adds. Jan and Sherrie both realized that their future health could be in jeopardy if they continued on this path of sugar, overeating, and choosing an unhealthy lifestyle.

They both chose to make a change in their lives, removing sugar and unhealthy carbohydrates from their diet. They began eating a more healthy and well-balanced diet of fish, chicken and fresh fruits, nuts, beans and fresh vegetables. Occasionally they would enjoy whole grain pasta and whole grain bread. They added exercise into their daily lives and they have both lost weight. Now, they both look and feel younger and have more energy.

They are true believers of healthy eating in order to enrich the total mind, body and spirit so the entire body system can work in harmony and at its full potential, the way that nature intended it to perform. A total mind and body transformation is possible for all who choose it with the use of proper nutrition, meditation and exercise you enjoy.

Sherrie attended the Nia White Belt Training in May of 2008 and then began her Nia journey bringing Nia to the Orlando, Florida area from 2008 until May 2011. Nia was new to the Central Florida area so Sherrie decided to rent space from other mind-body-dance-health and fitness owners who were open to sharing their space with her. Sherrie was open to other opportunities from locations such as: public libraries, senior centers that had space available and wanted to share Nia with their community. This arrangement gave her the time needed to nurture, feed and grow Nia and a community over time in the Orlando area.

Sherrie enjoyed introducing and sharing her Nia knowledge and experience with those interested in an alternative to the standard workout that currently existed in this area. When beginning her Nia teaching in 2008 her dream was to grow a Nia community in the Central Florida area.

In October of 2010 Sherrie was informed by her husband that a move may take place in the near future. In June 2011 Sherrie, Jan and their daughter Melissa made the move to North Carolina.
It saddened Sherrie to leave her Nia students behind in Orlando, Florida, but she is looking forward to what is to come in the Carolina's. Sherrie has learned so much from those who have connected with her over the years and wishes to thank everyone who has stepped into her life and supported her along the way.

Nia has not ended in the Orlando area, Nia has just come to a gentle pause......until the next Nia instructor steps forward to continue the work that was started. If you are interested in becoming a Nia instructor you can find out more information at and click on Training at the top of the page or contacting Sherrie personally via email or by phone.
