Simone was born in Zimbabwe and came to London to train as a ballet dancer. She ended up dancing for Sadler’s Wells Royal Ballet for 9 years and English National Ballet before moving to Cape Town City Ballet where she danced for a further 3 years. It was during her time as a dancer where she was introduced to Pilates and was amazed by its effects on her and her dancing. Realising the power of the exercises, she decided to train as a teacher back in 1997. She has trained with two of the UK`s leading teachers, Lynn Robinson and Gordon Thomson. Simone has been training teachers for Body Control Pilates since 2005.
