Student Teachers



~ Juniors ~

I love to dance because it gives an opportunity to express who you are as a person. Having the opportunity to share my love for dance with younger students is very important. 


Clair Anderson

I love dancing and I love working with kids, both together sounds good.


Ruby Ackinclose

~ Juniors ~

I have danced my whole life and loved every minute, I love the energy and the way it makes me feel. I would love for other students to have the experience to feel this and love dance the way I do.


Maddison Allan

~ Juniors ~

I love dance because it has always been a part of my life since I was young and I always feel proud that I am one of millions of people who represent dance around the world. I want younger kids to feel proud and confident while dancing because everyone should be able to show off their talents.



~ Intermediates ~

I love to dance because it makes me happy and it’s what I look forward to doing in the afternoon or coming days. I want to share my love with younger dancers because I love seeing them trying to dance like us when we are on stage. I want them to some day feel the magic that I feel when I dance and be the ones that other little dancers are looking up to.

Dancing brings me so much joy and happiness and performing and dancing full out gives you an unforgettable feeling. I would love for the younger students to have the same experience.
