Collaborators

together we are Synergique

The vision for Synergique was founded by Heather Visser who collaborates with her talented team of instructors and students to push beyond the normal constraints and confines.

Heather Visser
founder

One of Heather Visser’s greatest passions in life is collaborating with dancers and artists.  When asked her favorite part of teaching she states “It’s not only the interaction with the dancers but the  excitement we all feel as we collectively create.  It’s the watching of light bulbs burst from person-to-person as an idea and concept makes full circle and feeds each other’s artistry.”

Heather brings to her teaching expertise years of formal ballet and jazz training from amazing teachers.  She is especially grateful for and influenced mostly by Ann Derby of Petaluma School of Ballet and Tamara Dockery of City Jazz.  A lifelong resident of Sonoma County she has taught at numerous dance studios and high schools over the past 20 years including Petaluma School of Ballet, The Dance Center, Sonoma State University and Tone Fitness.  Heather directed three performing groups as well as an entire department at The Dance Center for 15 years. 

Heather takes great pride in continuing her education to increase her knowledge of the body.  She is a STOTT trained Pilates instructor and was mentored by Conna Lee Weinberg of Mindful Spine.  She firmly believes that every BODY is unique.  You must learn how YOUR body works in order to use it to its full creative potential.  Not only is this awareness vital as a dancer but also as a healthy human being.

Amanda Barragán
instructor

Amanda began dancing the moment she witnessed the 9 minutes and 37 seconds of genius that is: Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal.” Her mom decided that jammin’ on the living room carpet would only take her daughter so far and enrolled her in a local studio. One very bright green sequined-costume later, she was hooked.

She studied as many genres as she could, joined companies around the bay area that would expose her to new performance opportunities and later, took her studies to CSU Long Beach where she could continue to dance and get away with such a thing as her “Major.” She graduated in 2007 with a B.A in Dance Science, which gave her the opportunity to combine and study her two passions: dance, and the miraculous, intricate inner-workings of the human body.

In 2013 she decided to further her study movement and completed her Comprehensive Teacher Training Course through BASI Pilates led by its founder, Rael Isacowicz. In 2016 she completed her certification through Tone Fitness led by Monica Anderson, a fellow super-body-geek and longtime mentor. Amanda has been teaching dance for over 15 years, and continues to fall deeper in love with the opportunity to guide dancers along their own paths, helping each student discover how best to work with their own individual bodies and to take honor and pride in their health, longevity, and well-being.
