 TEACHERS
 
BrooklynBallet, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre
 
Brooklyn has been very passionate about dancing from the moment she stepped on stage. At just 9 years old, she had big dreams for herself as a jazz dancer, not knowing what more was waiting for her in the future. In two short years, she added ballet, musical theatre, hip-hop and acrobatic to her schedule and began dancing competitively. In the next two years she started tap, contemporary and lyrical. In her first year of tap, she was an alternate for Team Canada Tap. In her years of dance, she has completed ADAPT Jazz (Junior 3, Pre-Intermediate 1 and 2) and Tap (Pre-Intermediate 1 and 2) exams and RAD Ballet (Grade 4, Intermediate and Advanced Foundation) exams. Brooklyn was a part of The Great Russian Nutcracker Ballet in Saskatoon in 2016, and that same year she travelled to California to dance in the Disneyland Christmas Parade. 
 
In her classes, students will learn the foundation of dance and begin to develop that into choreography whether that be just a combination or a routine. The dancers will learn technique through fun, unique steps. She will teach the students how dance is used to express yourself and how to move with the music. The Aspire Dance School is a very welcoming place in which each student is able to learn in their own way. Brooklyn’s classes are fun and educational, and she can’t wait to share her passion with the dancers. 
 
Kendall - Ballet, Jazz, Tap
 
Kendall has been dancing since she was 3 years old. She began in Tiny Tot Ballet and continued to add more styles as she grew up. At the age of 12, Kendall became an assistant teacher and at 15 she became a student teacher. As she was growing up she attended multiple conventions and competitions every year to experience new styles and challenge herself to be better. Kendall has competed with groups, trios, duets and solos in ballet, pointe, lyrical, jazz, tap, modern, hip hop, and song and dance. As well as attending competitions and conventions, Kendall graduated from high school with her RAD Advanced 1 Ballet and Grade 8 Ballet, CDTA Advanced Jazz and Tap, and is an Associate member of the Canadian Dance Teachers Association (Stage - Tap).
 
In her classes, students can expect a fun energetic class that creates the building blocks for strong dance technique and a passion to continue exploring new styles! Kendall is very excited to be joining the Aspire team and is looking forward to seeing what the year will bring!
