About Janice

Janice Dulak is a former professional dancer, a Romana’s Pilates Master Instructor Trainer and a USDF Bronze medalist. Her path from dancer to dressage rider, combined with her clear and concise distillation of the Pilates Method, creates Pilates for Dressage®, the original rider training program.


Janice is passionate about helping riders achieve their riding goals. As a dancer trying to learn to ride dressage, Janice noticed that there was a language barrier between the instructor and rider. For example, if an instructor were to say “use your leg” to a dancer, that could actually mean anything. Janice has created a vocabulary for both instructor and rider that is meaningful, and teaches riders how to do what the instructor is asking.
