Melanie + Jeannie,
Owners

Melanie and Jeannie have been a part of the Peace Region Community since birth and grew up dancing within their local studios. After furthering their studies in places such as Calgary and Vancouver, Melanie and Jeannie were eager to bring their knowledge back home. They feel blessed to be pursuing their dreams of owning and operating the studio and look forward to sharing their passion with the next generation of artists.

Studio Owner

CDTA  Licentiate Member Jazz + Tap

Sugarfoot Therapy Certified

Dance holds a powerful connection to Jeannie as it will always be her constant; the one thing that will never diminish. She is grateful towards its ability to help her both celebrate and heal the ever evolving chapters within life. 

Moments of accomplishments and adversities is where Jeannie finds most of her inspiration. From everyday experiences to intentional narratives brought out through song, a simple point of view from another perspective encourages her creativity. 

Beyond dance, Jeannie finds happiness in being surrounded by family and friends. Together they enjoy outdoor activities such as camping and golfing during the summer months and snowboarding throughout the winter. She is grateful that both her creative passions of dance and organizing have led to rewarding careers and she encourages everyone to pursue what they love to do.

What Jeannie appreciates most about her role as an instructor is getting the privilege to watch growth within a student, not only in regards to their technical abilities but most importantly within their own personal development.

Dance to her is more than moving to music, it is an outlet for creativity and a method of accessing a peaceful state of mind. Melanie finds inspiration within conceptual ideas, stories or characters and music.

Outside of dance and the studio Melanie finds joy through the lens of her camera or on the back of her horse. During the off season you can find her camping, riding, or up north with her family. Melanie has two beautiful children and a supportive  husband. 

Melanie's favourite part about being a coach is watching her students perform on stage. She loves to see the dancers give it their all showcasing all their hard work!
