Saskia Harmon (Technique and Jazz) has almost 10 years of experience teaching, from kids to adults of all ages. Originally from Deland, Florida, Saskia has been living in Brentwood, TN for eight years now. She began dancing at the young age of three and has not stopped since. During her childhood in Florida, Saskia was a Kid of the Kingdom for three years in Walt Disney World. Saskia is a graduate of the University of Tennessee, where she was a member and captain of the nationally ranked University of Tennessee Dance Team from 2002-2006. After graduating college, Saskia traveled to New York and California to pursue a career in make-up artistry. A few years later, she found herself back in Tennessee. Saskia is the current manager at Pure Barre Brentwood, where she has been teaching for over 2 years. Saskia loves helping women stay fit and re-gain their confidence in themselves. With her mother as a dance teacher, Saskia knows what it takes to balance family, school, and dance. Saskia and her husband, Peter, expanded their family this August by welcoming their first baby girl into the world! She loves watching kids grow and become stronger dancers year after year and is looking forward to a successful dance season with ROOTS Dance Academy.
