Hi, my name is Drew. This upcoming season will be my fourth season as a Senior Instructor at Dancers Edge. I grew up dancing, competing, and teaching with The Performing Arts Warehouse in Prince Albert. I started at the age of four in ballet and ended up training in ballet, pointe, modern, lyrical, jazz, and hip-hop. Along the way I completed my primary, grades one through five, Intermediate Foundations, Intermediate, and Advanced Foundations, Royal Academy of Dance Ballet Exams. For fun, I have also taken a few hoops and silks aerial arts classes!
After graduating, I moved to Saskatoon to attend the University of Saskatchewan. There I completed my undergraduate prerequisites with a focus in English and History. I also held a volunteering position with Saskatoon’s Open Doors Society where I worked as a high school tutor. Since then I have been accepted into the College of Law and am now entering my second year in law school.
While at the University, I also started at Dancers Edge as a Senior Instructor. I love that I get to continue practicing my passion and sharing my knowledge with my students. I have also tried to continue my training and improve myself as an instructor by attending the odd class, watching local dance events, and learning from my fellow Senior Instructors. One of my favorite parts of Dancers Edge is the small family environment it offers. I get to know the kids and families at the studio, see friendships form, and watch new challenges being overcome. I strongly believe that dance is just as much about character building as it is about building technique. In a small-town studio like Dancers Edge it is so heartwarming to be able to watch my students grow not only as dancers but as people. It has also been amazing to watch this young studio grow and adapt with us, as it has added a competition stream, exam programs, and new genres of classes. Outside of school and dance, I enjoy hiking with my dog, swimming, reading, and travelling.
