Alex - Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Musical Theatre, Lyrical 
Miss Alex started her passion for dance at the age of 3 and she continued to study dance until after grade 12. She started with strictly ballet classes, but as her love as dance grew, this soon branched out to jazz, lyrical, musical theatre, tap, hip hop, modern, pointe and allegro. At the age of 7 she was introduced to the word of competition when her musical theatre group went to the Humboldt Music Festival for the first time. From that point forward, she became a fierce competitor, and competed with her groups as well as in duets at many different competitions throughout Saskatchewan earning her many awards and medals.  
Dance is Miss Alex’s passion, and in her group classes she wants everyone to experience what dance has to offer through hard work, but by also having fun.  Technique is important and will be a focus in class, as well as learning how to express yourself through the music.  With all of Miss Alex’s experience she hopes to incorporate the various techniques to bring some fresh ideas to her choreography, which the students will enjoy and learn. 
Brooklyn - Hip Hop, Jazz, Ballet, Tap, 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.
