Dance Teacher / Soul Sister
Denise was a very shy little kid until she was enrolled in dance at 3 years old. She has trained in Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Lyrical, and Tap. Her favourite style has to be Jazz, but she has a soft spot for Lyrical.
Growing up in Calgary, she was a competitive dancer for eight years and fell in love with being on stage. Her love for teaching kids began as a student apprentice at her old studio. Denise is currently part of the Crossroads Dance Productions roaster and has performed in shows with YYC Arts. She is continuing her training as a dancer in the Edge Studios Post-Graduate Program.
Denise is also a full-time student currently in her second year at the University of Calgary for Biological Sciences. She is so excited to be a Soul Sister and a teacher this year. She couldn't be happier to be back in the studio and share her love for dance.

this is me trying by Taylor Swift.
What do you love about your job?
Whether I am working at the desk or teaching the dancers, I love being able to connect with so many people. I love hearing their stories and when I teach, it's so powerful to watch their accomplishments in each class and see their growth.
