Born and raised in Vancouver, Norrie spent her first 20 years devoted to dance. After completing her ballet studies through RAD, and competing in Jazz and Contemporary Dance, Norrie spent a year traveling the Caribbean performing onboard the Norwegian Sun cruise ship. Realizing the need to balance her dancing with some practical exposure, she went to the University of Western Ontario to complete a Bachelors Degree. Upon returning to Vancouver, Norrie furthered her studies with a Marketing Communications Certificate from BCIT and landed a position with ad advertising agency here in Vancouver.

She stumbled upon a brand new Barre Fitness studio in Yaletown on her way home from work one day, back in August 2010, and this led her to where she is today. As a client at the studio from day one, Norrie quickly fell in love with the Barre workout, the atmosphere of the studio, and the entire philosophy of the company. Two years later, she is the owner of the first ever Barre Fitness franchise. Her studio, located in North Vancouver, is a dream come true. She's been able to combine her love for fitness, dance and business into something she can call her own. Now as lululemon athletica Park Royal's Barre Ambassador, Norrie is thrilled to share her love for Barre and grow with the North Shore community. Norrie is a Certified CanFit Pro Group Fitness Instructor & Certified Barre Fitness Trainer.
