Meet Cibennie Snaer who is from Pasadena, CA. Dance has always been a regular activity for Cibennie, since she grew up in a home where music was always a part of her daily existence.

Cibennie discovered GROOV3 when walking past the studio and she couldn't ignore the party-like atmosphere! "I was looking for something to really get me back to being balanced with work and life... G3 is without a doubt the balance I NEEDED!"
