About Me

I am so excited to be teaching Dance 15, 25 and 35 at Hunting Hills this year.  I have been involved in dance for over 30 years.  After high school, I followed my love of dance and attended classes in Toronto, London and New York.  I went on to receive a dance diploma from Grant MacEwan Community College, a Bachelor of Arts dance degree with distinction from the University of Calgary and recently completed my Bachelor of Education with distinction at RDC.  I have choreographed and instructed for school physical education programs and dance option classes, theatre classes and performances, recreational and competitive dancers in the community, as well as instructing ballroom classes to Red Deer College students.  Some of my trained dancers are now professionally performing and/or pursuing dance related programs, as well as those students who are now teaching dance themselves.  I am certified with my Junior Teachers certificate in Cecchetti Ballet and my Intermediate Cecchetti Ballet. I also am a certified Alberta Dance Arts Professional Associated Teacher in both tap and jazz (A.D.A.P.T.).  

I look forward to meeting you and sharing my passion of dance!
