Aquene Diedricksen, an MDI-native, started dancing at the age of three and hasn’t stopped moving since. A natural athlete, she participated in soccer, tennis, and track, all while studying Russian-technique ballet at the Libitzki School of Dance.

She found her passion in performing and choreographing, blending styles of contemporary, hip hop and African.

Today, Aquene utilizes her dynamic dance and fitness background to teach classes and workshops that sculpt the body with the feminine physique in mind. Aquene is available for Private and Small Group Training in addition to her weekly group fitness classes.

Suzanne Bracey, with daughter, Delaney

“My name is Suzanne. I’m the proud mom of 4 awesome kids and 4 amazing grandkids. I work full time at Harbor House Community Service Center and I’m also a non-traditional college student. I’m a marathoner who can’t run a whole lot any more due to a knee surgery, so I was looking for a class that would give me the same fulfillment that I get from running. I started taking Barre and Buti Yoga with Aquene in fall of 2017 and I was immediately hooked! Aquene has a way of lighting up a room and helping you find the very best version of yourself. The workouts are so fun, so challenging and so rewarding. Most importantly, we feel like a family in this class. This strong tribe of women build each other and ourselves upward. I’ve never really experienced anything quite like this in a fitness class. Aquene has created something very special- she is one of a kind!”

Ali showing off her core strength, one year post-partum!”Hi! I’m Ali. I am the stay at home Mom of a wonderful 18 month old little girl. I have always been intimidated by gyms because I never knew what to do at them. I had been looking for a class and never found the right one until I found Barre! It’s the perfect fit of dance, yoga and enthusiasm. I’m so thankful for Aquene’s instruction and her joyful, encouraging personality.”
