Miss Jessica

"As a teacher of several advanced level classes at Dance Expressions, I am inspired by the product of work each and every student demonstrates. The technical tools I use in class differs from week to week, and the students are more than willing to always try something new. The students are mature and open minded with new learning experiences and are always very respectful to me in the room as a teacher."

Miss Jocelyn

"As the Acro Instructor at Dance Expressions, I ask for a lot from my girls. I ask them to try their hardest, face challenges and fear, push hard through conditioning, and trust in one another and use teamwork for lifts and stunts. All the students I have met at the studio, put in so much effort and are extremely respectful. They are eager to learn new things and work hard to perfect the things they already know.

Laurene trusts in me to keep the girls safe during class. She also has made me feel welcome and has trusted in my background and knowledge to train her dancers. The technique, willingness to learn, and positive attitudes/environment has made my teaching experience here one of the best.""
