Nadia Kotsonis was born and raised in Greece and lived there until she was 25 years old. She moved to the United States when she met her husband Nick, a Greek-American while on vacation in the Greek isles. 11 years since then have passed and they have two beautiful boys that keep them busy and melt their hearts: Dimitri (age 7) and Constantine (age 3). Nadia has a college degree from the University of Athens where she majored in Theology, Philosophy and Psychology. She also holds a Master Instructor Certificate from Microsoft. In her early childhood what started out as a hobby and later turned into a big passion was her love of ballet. At the age of 4 she began dancing and eventually made it into a Professional Dance School where she studied ballet, contemporary, tap, jazz, character, history of dance, anatomy and music. When Nadia first came to the U.S. she lived with her husband in Cincinnati where she worked as an IT administrator for a non-profit HR company. After a few years when their first child was born they moved to Columbus and couldn’t have been happier with the change. Nadia now works as a Greek School Teacher at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral on High St and is a member of the Greek School Board there as well. She also teaches Barre at Physique Fitness Studio in Grove City where she is a manager and a master Barre trainer. Nadia loves teaching and seeing everyone smile. When not working she enjoys reading, cooking and traveling with the family. They travel every year to Greece to see Nadia’s family and spend some time enjoying the ocean and the tasty food. One of her favorite sayings comes from Plato: “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle”.
