As a young girl, my only dream was to dance. On Broadway to be exact. I was constantly dancing down aisles at the supermarket, and creating "mini-musicals" on my driveway for my neighbours to enjoy. I didn’t care if I had an audience of 1 or 101; I would bust out routines in an instant.
At 15, when I was lucky to have the opportunity to teach, I realized how wonderful it was to share my love of dance to children that ever-so reminded me of myself at that age, and my entire "career" changed in an instant.
Today, teaching over 40 classes a week, I’m confident to say that I've never been on Broadway. But I have taught a child how to dance. And to me, that’s way more rewarding than a Tony.
I hope that our students' time spent participating at CSOD will be enriching and that I can support them in achieving their goals. I strive to give each dancer a perfect balance of proper training, motivation and discipline, in hopes to create a life full of self confidence and respect towards this wonderful art form. I take pride in our dancers’ accomplishments, and I wish to give Caledonia an opportunity to be acknowledged as a place with great talent! I am excited to have this opportunity to challenge and encourage my students, and to watch them grow and to see them shine on stage.
I take the responsibility of being a role model to my students very seriously, and I thank you for allowing me to instil my passion for dance in them all.
