Studio Owners
  • Kerry Corcoran
    Kerry Corcoran

    Kerry, co-owner and manager of the Berkeley studio, has been a student of Lotte Berk-inspired exercise since 2003. A critical care nurse for over a decade, Kerry was immediately attracted to The Dailey Method’s focus on proper alignment and core strengthening. Under the instruction of Jill Dailey McIntosh and Susan Willrich, she became a certified teacher in 2005. Kerry’s background as a lifelong dancer and healthcare professional has helped her become one of the most popular Dailey Method teachers. She is dedicated to combining her two passions to help others create stronger, healthier bodies.

  • Susan Willrich
    Susan Willrich

    Susan Willrich opened the first Dailey Method franchised studio, The Dailey Method Piedmont, in 2005. Prior to launching her own studio, Susan completed her Master Instructor certification under the direction of Jill Dailey McIntosh, teaching classes at the original San Francisco and Marin locations since 2003.

    Along with her business partner, Kerry Corcoran, Susan launched a second location, The Dailey Method Berkeley in 2009. In addition to instructing clients, Susan enjoys the process of recruiting and training the teaching staff at both locations. A graduate of UC Berkeley, Susan’s life-long background in dance and yoga drew her to The Dailey Method. “It combines all the elements of fitness that I truly love: yoga, pilates, and dance. I’ve tried everything, and nothing gave me the results so quickly, efficiently and safely as The Dailey Method. The emphasis on alignment and posture has helped me to stand taller, and feel more confident. Plus, it’s so nostalgic & fun to be at a ballet barre! I feel so lucky I can share it with my community.
