Fleming Lomax - Pilates Practitioner
Fleming Lomax began dancing as a young girl in her hometown of Goldsboro, NC. She danced with Goldsboro Ballet and continued her training in high school at North Carolina School of the Arts. She attended UNC-Greensboro on scholarship; there she received the Virginia Moomaw Award for dance theory and performance and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Dance Education. Fleming's teaching career includes faculty positions at Dreyfoos School of the Arts (West Palm Beach, FL), Denver School of the Arts (Denver, CO), the company school of Ballet Nouveau Colorado, and currently at Asheville Center of Performing Arts where she is Director of Asheville City Ballet. Fleming's performing career includes two seasons with Kim Robards Modern Dance Company and four seasons with Ballet Nouveau Colorado. She retired from professional ballet in 2005 but enjoys an occasional return to the stage as a guest artist, most recently as Emily Webb in Phillip Jerry's ballet adaptation of the Thornton Wilder classic, Our Town.
Fleming received her Pilates certificate from The Pilates Center of Boulder, a world-renowned training facility where she completed a year-long internship in classical Pilates. She graduated in 2005, returned to her home state of North Carolina, and joined the staff of The Core-A Pilates Studio, now Body Synergy, in September of that year. "Working with clients each day is so rewarding," says Fleming, "because I get to see people make mind-body connections which empower them and enhance their quality of life. I firmly believe in the Pilates method, because it is relevant to everyone-- from the fine-tuned athlete to the person rehabilitating from surgery or injury. It encompasses the needs and goals of each individual. How fulfilling it is to witness daily the infinite possibilities of the human body! I leave work in awe!"
