Indiana Woodward

Indiana Woodward, born in Paris, France, discovered her love for dance at a young age. At the age of ten, she began her formal dance training at the Yuri Grigoriev School of Ballet in Venice, California where she met Saskia. Her talent and dedication led her to study in Moscow at the bolshoi ballet school where she trained and performed, and ultimately completed her ballet training at the prestigious School of American Ballet (SAB), the official school of New York City Ballet. In August 2012, she became an apprentice with NYCB and officially joined the Company as a member of the corps de ballet in December 2012. Over the years, Indiana's skill and artistry propelled her career, and she was promoted to the rank of soloist dancer in February 2017, and ultimately to principal dancer in October 2021.

Saskia Gregson-Williams

Saskia Gregson-Williams is a professionally trained ballerina and personal trainer. Alongside her dance training, Saskia has always been passionate about health and wellbeing. She founded the award-winning online Health & Fitness website Naturally Sassy and released her debut cookbook published by Penguin-Random House in 2015. Saskia's journey with fitness took an interesting turn when she experienced a recurring injury in ballet that led her to explore new ways of training. This inspired her to create Ballet Blast, a powerful program for her own recovery. Combining her classical ballet background with strength and cardio work, Saskia started developing routines that yielded incredible physical results. As she shared her method with friends, colleagues, and clients from diverse backgrounds and goals, the popularity of Ballet Blast grew and blossomed into the launch of the Naturally Sassy Studio, and now Grace and Form.
