Our Director of Dance, Ms. Lisa Wickwire, is passionate about fostering the love of dance in her students. Having danced since the young age of three, Ms. Lisa has spent her entire life in the world of dance. She grew up in Calgary as a competitive dancer and moved to Toronto at the age of 18 to pursue Theatre, where she graduated as class president from the Randolph College of Performing Arts.
After graduating, Ms. Lisa received her first contract. She travelled to Florida and began training for Costa Cruise Ships. She toured Europe and the Caribbean for one year, dancing in five different shows, including the dance assistant in a magic show in Italy. Following that contract, Ms. Lisa joined the Ritmos Naturales Dance Company in Cancun, Mexico. She eventually returned to Toronto and received a lead role in a workshop production of West Side Story, which benefited the Toronto People with Aids Foundation.
Ms. Lisa is a scholarship recipient from the Los Angeles Dance Force and has also danced in two tap-dance workshops with the late tap legend - Gregory Hines. Throughout her career, Ms. Lisa has always been passionate about sharing her love of dance with her students.
