About Our Owner/Director, Miss Arianna:

Arianna is a qualified and experienced competitive dancer and instructor, starting her dance training at the age of 3. She was trained under the British Association of Teachers of Dancing (BATD) in Ballet, Pointe, Tap and Jazz for 15 years at Studio One Dance in Thunder Bay, ON. She achieved multiple honours/distinctions in her examinations and competed provincially in ballet and tap.


Arianna competed as a soloist and as part of a team at many local, national and international competitions achieving many first-place standings, overall titles, special awards, and scholarships. A highlight from her dance years was when she achieved an Elite Top First in the Tap Soloist Category for her age group and 10th Overall for all soloists in the teen division out of approximately 200 dancers at the Kids Artistic Review Dance Competition in Las Vegas, NV. In addition, she was invited to attend the Royal Winnipeg Ballet Professional Division Teacher Training Program at the age of 18.


Arianna began her passion for teaching dance as a teacher's assistant at the age of 14 at Studio One Dance. She then became an instructor for Dream Dance Company in Thunder Bay at 17 years old, where she taught ballet, tap and jazz to dancers ranging from

4 to 16 years old. She then moved on to specialize in teaching the only tap at Art in Motion Dance School in Thunder Bay.


Arianna has also obtained a micro-certificate in Cultural Safety: Diversity and Inclusion and special recognition in the Identity Matters: LGBTQ2S+ program through the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT) in her full-time career.


Overall, Arianna is passionate about providing quality dance instruction to aspiring dancers through structured classwork as well as encouraging her dancers to express themselves freely through dance.


For the 2024/25 season, Arianna will be teaching Tap/Jazz Level 1 and Tap/Jazz Level 2. She will also be teaching Competitive Choreo alongside our other instructors, Saskia and Emily.
