I completed teacher training with the Conservatory of Performing Arts in NS (accelerated course) and in collaboration with Canadian Dance Teachers Association. I've completed the teaching certification for Ballet and Modern with the CDTA. Currently I teach and own a small studio of approximately 75 dancers from ages 2yrs+. I teach ballet, jazz, modern, contemporary, musical, and a few "baby" classes. I'm also a 200hr certified yoga instructor.
