1. Acro Background: I have been an acro dancer for 25 years. I trained acro dance competitively in Port Moody BC for 10 years while taking my CDTA acro dancer and acro teacher examinations. I continued my training professionally at the Toronto Circus School while doing my BFA in Performance Dance at Ryerson University. I performed acro dance, aerial straps, and aerial hoop in Toronto. I am a certified acro dance instructor with Alixa Flexibility, the Canadian Dance Teachers Association, the Performing Arts Educators of Canada and Acrobatic Arts. I’ve trained several Canadian acro dancers including Canada’s National Acro Team (Spain and Portugal World Performers Canada). Currently, I am the Certification Director at the ADTA, Director of Move With The Beat Dance & Acro Competition, Director of Dance Attack Acro Convention and touring across Canada as a Master Acro Instructor/ Adjudicator.
