Gwyn Goodwin grew up in Carrollton and began dancing at the age of three. She trained locally (with Pauline Jeffers and Anita Burbage) and was later encouraged to pursue more intense classical training, with the Atlanta School of Ballet. She quickly became a member of Atlanta Ballet II, and performed in numerous Atlanta Ballet productions. Gwyn graduated from Oak Mountain Academy and attended college at North Carolina School of the Arts (UNC), training with Melissa Hayden for two years. Wanting a more normal college setting, she transferred to Butler University, where she earned her BFA in dance performance. Upon graduation, Gwyn joined Colorado Ballet in the fall, where she danced professionally for two seasons. Professional performance experience includes Serenade, Theme and Variations, Swan Lake, Stars and Stripes, Cinderella, and Nutcracker. It was during this time she developed an injury, and an interest in caring for dancers and athletes. This easily helped with a transition into chiropractic school. Gwyn earned her Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life University and has been in private practice since 2003. She and her husband co-own Integrative Body Health, a local chiropractic office. Gwyn has worked with numerous professional dancers and athletes of all kinds to rehab and prevent injuries. She is delighted to bring her teaching experience and knowledge of spinal biomechanics to Fever dancers.
