  Business Administration

B.F.A Music, Summa Cum Laude
Graduated with highest honours

As a young student of dance, I studied with Les Grands Ballet Canadiens in Montreal. In 1970, I started my teaching career with the Canadian Ballet Association, continuing to train as a dancer, teacher and choreographer. I also studied anatomy, pedagogy, and biomechanics, all as applied to dance. For 15 years, I taught in six locations in and around the Montreal area, reaching 350 students each year.

In 1978, I partnered with Anthony Powell, (Concordia, BFA Music,Sum Cum Laude), who was then the Dance Director of the Fred Astaire Dance Studio, Quebec Region. As a dance team we trained and competed in International Style Ballroom. In 2003, I went New England to attend seminars in sales and marketing for potential dance school owners. And in 2004, POWELL SCHOOL OF DANCE of Cornwall, Ontario was founded.

We are a busy and close-knit family, and learning to work together on a professional level has added a new dimension to our lives.

My duties as the Artistic Director are very challenging, and always thoroughly enjoyable. But, I am totally dedicated and devoted to teaching classical ballet, and instilling in my students the proper technique of this beautiful art form.

My life still and always will revolve around dance. Will I ever "hang up my shoes?" Probably not! My personal philosophy is in keeping with the words of Brian Foley, the co-founder of ADAPT (Associated Dance Arts for Professional Teachers) curriculum, "Teach until the teaching is done."

And my most satisfying moments...are seeing my three daughters following in my footsteps...well I mean dance steps...
