Susan Janson - Owner, Dance and Fitness Instructor

Susan began dancing at age 4 and quickly fell in love with all forms of dance and dreamed of doing nothing else. Professionally dancing for numerous years, Susan began transitioning into teaching and quickly fell in love with teaching three year olds all the way up to adults.

As a way to keep in shape and recover from injury, she began taking fitness classes and soon began teaching different formats of fitness as well. While completing her MBA at CSULB, Susan opened Kick It Up as the first noncompetitive fitness and dance studio in the area with the premise of dance and fitness classes for multiple levels and ages at the same time and in the same location.
