Meet Pavielle Dawson! Pavi teaches COMMIT Dance Fitness at the Briggs Community YMCA.

The COMMIT Dance Fitness experience is an epic fun-filled dance workout. Each routine focuses on essential fitness elements created to a variety of popular music from all over the world. Classes incorporate traditional fitness movements and consist of genres including Latin, hip hop, pop, country, Soca, reggae, and more. We asked Pavi how she came to teach COMMIT, and asked her to share a bit about herself!  

“I am an educator and mom of three that loves to inspire people. I have always had a love of dance, music, and community, so when Commit To You Dance was launched, I felt excited to participate as much as possible because it made me feel rejuvenated. It was and still is my best form of self-care because it creates a positive uplifting atmosphere. It also provides a great HIIT (high-intensity interval training)-style workout for the whole body. When I moved to Thurston County, I really wanted to offer COMMIT to the community so all folks that love dance and music could move their bodies in a fun dynamic way.

“When I am not dancing, I am watching movies with my kids or working my other job supporting high school youth with college readiness.

You can experience COMMIT at Briggs, Fridays at 5:30pm and Saturdays at 12:00pm! Don’t miss the fun!
