Vanessa has been dancing at The Dance Centre for over 20 years, and is now heading into her ninth year of teaching. Vanessa teaches many styles of dance such as ballet, jazz, tap, broadway, hip hop, contemporary, and acrojazz. The Cecchetti Syllabus classes in ballet gave Vanessa the opportunity to assist teaching at a young age, which quickly grew into a passion to teach as a career. Vanessa is now an Associate member of the Cecchetti Society of Canada and Cecchetti International Classical Ballet.
Throughout the years, Vanessa has participated in several Peter MacDonald Productions, attending dance workshops within and outside the province, is a member of the Dance Teachers Association of Newfoundland (DTAN), and has performed and choreographed for many dance/theatre camps and events. Vanessa hopes to teach and share with her students her knowledge, skill and love of dance.
