I grew up as a gymnast and dancer. Music and movement have been an engrained passion for me for as long as I can remember. Being a movement teacher for almost a decade , (spin, barre, dance, yoga, etc) I felt and still feel the fitness industry has become all about the end result. Read more>>

Grace Della

I started Miami Culinary Tours in 2010. My mother was a huge inspiration to me. Her passion for cooking, love of people and her skills as an educator gave me the idea to start a food tour that she could run in her own home town. I remembered as a little girl that the happiest times at home were when my mom would cook, family would come around and everyone would share stories around the table. Read more>>

My background is in creative writing. After receiving an MFA in Creative Writing (Poetry) from NYU, I moved to Miami for a tenure-track position at Miami Dade College teaching many different classes in writing and literature. I was there for two years before my first son was born. Becoming a mom changed everything, and (for many complicated reasons), I decided to teach part-time instead of full-time. Read more>>
