Miss Natalie

Dance Instructor

Natalie, born and raised in the Fraser Valley, aspires and finds fulfillment in sharing her passion for dance and professional expertise to all ages. While her student and teacher training was primarily RAD, and having received excellent results in all grade, vocational, and teacher examinations, Natalie ventured to find her love and exuberance for the performing arts later on while working with various coaches, choreographers, and fellow artists across the world. In May 2017, Natalie retired after her fifth season as company artist with Ballet Magnificat; USA (a professional international touring company). She returned to BC and now performs as a freelance instructor, coach, and choreographer, extending her love, experience, and professional skills both locally and internationally, upon invitation. As well, Natalie is continuing in her own dance career as seasonal guest artist and teacher with Canadian and international arts organizations. She strives and succeeds to inspire excellence and knowledgeable technique, while drawing out genuine expression, interpretation, and passion from each individual she works with. Something Natalie finds of great importance in both a private and classroom setting, is to create a safe and nurturing atmosphere where her students can flourish and walk away with a life-long positive experience.
