Instructor of the month: Sanne
Tell us about yourself
I grew up in a small town called ’t Goy. Ever since I was little, I’ve danced. I took singing and dance classes every single night! After my studie musicaltheatre in Tilburg, I moved to Amsterdam, which was definitely one of the best choices I have made so far -awesome city, awesome vibes!
Besides my teaching at Rocycle, I work at the casting agency Groen Casting.
My schedule can be hectic, so I’m always trying to find time to see my friends and family. Going to festivals is also one of my favorite things to do in my time off. Having an epic time with a great bunch of friends is a way to create memories that will last a lifetime!
5 facts people might not know about you
- I started playing in professional musicals at the age of 8. My first role was Gretl in the Sound of Music.
- I hate cooking dinner. I am not really all that much of a chef.
- I get cold easily. Thick, fluffy, oversized sweaters and hot chocolate are elementary for my survival!
- I love to take Power Naps.
- One of my favorite things to do is to play music really loud and dance my butt off in the morning. I’ll do it alone in my apartment. You can’t have a bad day after that.
What profession other than Rocycle instructor would you like to attempt?
I graduated my studie musicaltheatre at ‘Fontys Hogeschool voor de Kunsten’ in 2016. I played in shows like The Sound of Music, Annie, Late night zomercabaret and Pinokkio.
Singing, dancing and acting are my passions. I would love the combination of being on stage again and teaching at Rocycle. Best of both worlds.
Why should people join your classes?
I combine my love for movement, sweat and powerful music in a high-energy class. Fitness became a huge part of my life, and I wanted to share my love for music and movement through teaching.
My high-energy class will challenge you to exceed your limits. You’ll leave feeling empowered, energized and badass!

You never forget your first time. Mine was with Luuk. I was both excited and nervous. I can’t tell you a single song that was played or a single move we did on the bike, but I walked out of Roycle knowing that I wanted to be an instructor. It felt so magical and good.
