Teacher Profile:  Miss Robin

Our first Teacher Profile of the Season, is Miss Robin.  Miss Robin is our AcroDance Teacher and we wanted to tell you a little about her. 
Robin's love of dance started at 3 years old when she attended her first ballet class. She danced competitively and was invited to dance at Expo '86 in the BC Pavilion to showcase Powell River. She continued until graduation when she moved to Texada Island and worked for BC Ambulance.
Robin also figure skated with the Powell River Figure Skating Club and continued into her late teens. She earned all of her badges, performed competitively and in many ice shows as well as working as a skating instructor for the City of Powell River.
Robin took a break from work to get married and raise her three children. She stayed active by practicing yoga and pilates as well as walking/hiking with her family and dogs.
When Robin's daughter was 4 she began dancing at Sheridan Dance Academy and thus began her love of dance, and Robin's realization of how much she missed it. Soon afterwards her daughter started dancing competitively and they spent a lot of time at the studio. During this time Robin realized she really missed dancing and began thinking of how she could become more involved, other than backstage.
Robin's daughter (and her two sons!) as well as their friends have enlisted Robin's help over the years, in the backyard, perfecting their cartwheels and other "stunts". Without knowing it, Robin was building an interest of her own...
After travelling to many dance competitions outside of Powell River, Robin realized that the genre of AcroDance was quite popular, but something that was missing from Powell River's dance options. After meeting with Sheridan Dance Academy, and enrolling in a professional Teacher Training Program, in Calgary, Robin is excited to announce that she is a Canadian Certified Teacher in AcroDance with ADAPT (Associated Dance Arts for Professional Teachers - this is the same Association and Syllabus that Sheridan Dance Academy uses for all of it's Jazz and Tap Curriculum and Exams)
Robin looks forward to developing our students into even stronger, more flexible dancers than ever before!
Robin's AcroDance Classes are held on Wednesday and Thursdays, and are filling quickly!  Please check our schedule for specific times and age groups. Register ASAP to avoid disappointment!
