|Candice Pike is a dance practitioner, teacher, researcher, and advocate based in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. She is currently the Festival Manager for Gros Morne Summer Music.
Candice has taught ballet, jazz, modern dance, and dance fitness for nine years in Corner Brook, NL and Toronto, ON and is independently pursuing a community-based dance research project. Passionate about fostering an appreciation for dance in young people, she recently redesigned Grenfell Campus' children's dance camps to include performance training, somatic education, and movement exploration as well as formal technique training. Also, she is involved in Learning Through the Arts in the Western School District where she teaches math and social studies to grade three students through dance.
Candice has MA in Dance from York University. Her studies there focused on the intersections of recreational ballet, gender, and community building through feminist research and she is excited to explore these ideas in rural Newfoundland.
