Deena Marcum Selko's Bio

Deena Marcum Selko is a multi-talented individual, embodying the essence of a healer, artist, creator, visionary, and educator. With a lifelong devotion to the performing and healing arts, Deena's journey has been a tapestry of dance, acrobatics, music, yoga and a profound appreciation for various art forms, instilled in her by her artist/yogi parents. Her passion and dedication led her to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from Marymount Manhattan College, catapulting her into a career as a dancer and aerialist spanning over two decades, gracing the stages of theatrical circuses and esteemed companies.

In 2009, Deena ventured into the realm of entrepreneurship, founding MOTH Live Entertainment. This visionary endeavor has allowed her to assume the roles of Creator and Artistic Director for captivating productions such as "Alice In Wonderland: A Musical Cirque Adventure" and "The Original Nutcracker Circus," among other grand-scale theatrical circus shows. Show after show, Deena's creative genius has mesmerized audiences, filling vast theaters to capacity and leaving them yearning for more. At the heart of MOTH lies Deena's unwavering belief in the transformative power of movement, encapsulated in the motto "Movement of the Heart," which she infuses into every facet of her life.

Parallel to her performing and directing career, Deena has dedicated herself to nurturing aspiring artists and exploring the healing potential of movement. Deena found the GYROTONIC Expansion System® in 1998, while living in NYC and dancing full-time in college. Since 2000, she has been a Licensed Gyrotonic® Teacher, delving into the intricacies of this unique fitness method that blends elements of dance, yoga, and gymnastics. Her expertise extends further as a Certified Yoga Instructor since 2007, and she developed her own Aerial Yoga Class and Teacher Training Program. Deena finds immense joy in guiding athletes and individuals on their paths to physical well-being and self-discovery. Having experienced over-use and acute injuries as an athlete, Deena has continually found ways to heal and prevent further injuries in herself and others.

Deena is thrilled to bring EnCore Fitness to her home community of Steamboat Springs, where she lives with her husband, and two daughters.
