Kerry Corcoran is the co-owner of The Dailey Method Berkeley and The Dailey Method Lamorinda and has been teaching anatomy to Dailey Method teachers and owners around the world since 2009.
Kerry’s love of health and caring for others started from a young age. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from the University of Pennsylvania and completed a Masters of Science in Nurisng degree at the University of San Francisco. Kerry is a certified Clinical Nurse Specialist in Critical Care & Trauma, as well as a Certified Neuroscience Nurse.
Kerry’s passion for health is equally matched by her love of dance. When Kerry discovered The Dailey Method in 2003 she found a way to combine her two passions in a way she’d never dreamed possible. As a critical care nurse for more than a decade, she was instantly attracted to The Dailey Method’s focus on proper alignment and core strengthening. The immediate physical results of the Method had her hooked after her first class. Under the instruction of Jill Dailey McIntosh, Kerry became a certified teacher in 2005. Her role with The Dailey Method grew as she helped develop an anatomy teacher training program specifically designed for Dailey Method teachers. For Kerry there is no greater joy than empowering her fellow teachers and owners by teaching them how fun anatomy can actually be!
Kerry is also the founder and owner of Anatomy4Fitness, LLC. For more information on her anatomy training go to www.anatomy4fitness.com
Susan Willrich opened the first Dailey Method franchised studio, The Dailey Method Piedmont, in 2005. Prior to launching her own studio, Susan completed her Master Instructor certification under the direction of Jill Dailey McIntosh, teaching classes at the original San Francisco and Marin locations since 2003.
Along with her business partner, Kerry Corcoran, Susan launched a second location, The Dailey Method Berkeley in 2009. In addition to instructing clients, Susan enjoys the process of recruiting and training the teaching staff at both locations. A graduate of UC Berkeley, Susan’s life-long background in dance and yoga drew her to The Dailey Method. “It combines all the elements of fitness that I truly love: yoga, pilates, and dance. I’ve tried everything, and nothing gave me the results so quickly, efficiently and safely as The Dailey Method. The emphasis on alignment and posture has helped me to stand taller, and feel more confident. Plus, it’s so nostalgic & fun to be at a ballet barre! I feel so lucky I can share it with my community.
“The conditioning is incredible for a professional dancer, of which I am…and over the past 4 years it has acted as an incredible practice companion in my dance training.
We want your feedback! It is part of our Dailey practice to always being a student. We give a positive comment (KEEP) along with a constructive one (GROW) to our fellow instructors. Now we ask you to do the same for us so we can continue to provide excellent classes and service.
