Barsky grew up in a small town in Southern New Jersey. She considers
herself a bit of a tomboy and doesn't mind "getting in the
mud" which probably stems from spending her youth weekend
ritual of riding dirt bikes, climbing trees, playing kick ball
and going to Atco Raceway to watch the drag cars zoom down the
strip. She spent most of her childhood competing at gymnastics
meets throughout the tri-state area with dreams of an Olympic
Gold. When circumstances took her off of the Olympic path she
found a passion for movement through ballet. Tge National
Ballet Company of New Jersey gave her the opportunity to build
strength, discipline and technique and with this experience she
decided to continue her education and training at the University

the heart of passion and the desire to see her clients succeed.
