Contra Costa Ballet 




Cecelia Kay Neff, owner and founder of Enlighten, was classically trained in San Francisco Bay Area.

After Contra Costa Ballet School and University of California Irvine, Cecelia performed throughout California before hanging up her dance shoes to create her dream of having a big family. She wished to have seven children, taking a break after five!


In 2002 children  9, 7, 5, 3 and newborn (sleeping in beach house during photo!)



In 2003 Cecelia made discoveries which led to a healthier lifestyle and practice.

The shifts in 2007 resulted in creation of the Enlighten Tri-fecta method which she began teaching throughout northern California.


In 2017 Enlighten Studio was born in Newcastle, CA

Here, students of all ages continue to receive her positive instruction





Physical Injuries HEAL


End suffering from back pain.


In 2003, Cecelia, a busy mom of five, suffered daily from severe pain. A serious auto accident caused whiplash/cervical spine damage.

Typical dancer injuries compounded with 5 pregnancies/births caused herniated discs in L4/L5 lumbar region along with sciatica.

Returning to her familiar dance training and pilates in 2007 she recovered with amazement.

With personal passion and knowledge of dance & pilates she healed and Enlighten Tri-fecta was born!

In less than a year she lost 40 pounds… stunned at the healing received.


This method has effectively guided many since then to healthy fitness.



Students of all ages continue to be astounded at the rapid results achieved with relative grace and ease.


From novice to advanced, find refreshment, posture, core, muscle tone, improved sleep, productivity, inspiration and energy.
