Chaz Glunk

Pure Barre Sarasota/Pure Barre Lakewood Ranch

Chaz a native of Sarasota, had his first experience to athletics and movement at Flex Dance Studios.
Within his first five years of training, he was accepted into the Harid Conservatory,
a prestigious boarding school for classical ballet training. After a year of intense
training at a professional levels, Chaz made his next big jump, attending Southern Methodist University.
Here he was exposed to all forms of dance, primarily focusing on Ballet, Modern, and Jazz.
In addition to learning the physical elements of dance, SMU provided him with the opportunity to understand the science of movement,
taking classes in Music Appreciation, Anatomy, Physiology, and Dance Pedagogy. After graduation,
Chaz was proud to come home to Sarasota to join Sarasota Ballet of Florida. Spending four years dancing
learning and enjoying home, Chaz decided to make another jump, Charleston, SC. While dancing in Charleston, SC,
Chaz was exposed to another side of professional ballet. Here Chaz danced works by Twyla Tharp,
George Balanchine, and Jill Bahr, and choreographed works of his own as well. After a few seasons
dancing with CBT,
Chaz made his furthest leap of faith, moving to Las Vegas. Taking his career toward a different path, Chaz
joined the commercial dance industry. He became member of one of the longest running
shows in Las Vegas history, Donn Arden's Jubilee! at Bally's hotel on the famous Las Vegas Strip.
After eighteen months, the excitement of the Las Vegas lights had faded. With a need to be closer to his family,
he knew it was time to complete the circle and return home.

Chaz was introduced to Pure Barre in the early Spring of 2012.
Instantly he was able to blend his well rounded dance training with the
Pure Barre Technique. It was love at first sight for his mind and body. This love quickly turned into
a passion for creating and transforming bodies through Pure Barre.
Now, Chaz is excited to be reaching many more individuals,
changing bodies and lives through Pure Barre.
