Artistic Body Development is Denver’s first and oldest Pilates studio, opening its doors in 1986 in the city’s Golden Triangle. The story begins years before however, when its founders, Mike Dailey and Andrea Bains, worked and danced together as ballet partners. It was during this time that their ballet instructor Larry Boyette, approached them to start a Pilates program for the other ballet students at the school. As their business and clientele grew, Mike and Andrea began to notice deficiencies in the traditional Pilates method, and so they began to develop the Pilates-based technique Artistic Body Development teaches today, called Myopatterning. You can learn more about this new technique in their marketing video.
