What is Boxerina and Why Now?

Updated: May 6




Ever since our 2013 DANNIJO New York Fashion Week show called Boxerina, I’ve been marinating on a movement. I knew there was something powerful and special at the intersection of the boxing and ballet worlds, and I knew there was a world there that didn’t yet exist.





As a former pole vaulter and athlete, I constantly tried to find my perfect workout in nyc. I tried every class and craze imaginable. It wasn’t until I got a herniated disc in L4/L5 in 2015 and had trouble walking that I realized I needed to reevaluate my workouts and what a workout means to me. 


What did I want from it, how did I want to feel during and after the workout, and what was I hoping to achieve? Boxerina was my answer to all of those questions: I wanted to be powerful and elegant at once and I wanted to listen to great music and wear inspiring outfits — both of which would keep me motivated.

Quarantine pushed me into launching Boxerina. I didn’t think I or the concept was ready. I saw that people needed Boxerina - that they craved new ways to move at home and new ways to get inspired and find beauty.





The boxerina logo is the yin-yang and it celebrates the paradox of women. We can be mothers and business women, graceful and powerful, be a tomboy and uber feminine at once. We’re not meant to fit into boxes, we’re Boxerinas.

I can’t thank you enough for coming along this journey with me. I hope that we as Boxerinas can move through life with more grace (especially as a go-getter New Yorker at heart) and learn to slow down and find beauty in the being.

In closing Boxerina is not just another workout class, it’s a movement and a mentality. I truly believe that you don’t have to kill yourself to get results and mental health benefits.
