Miss Amanda Sturrock | Teacher
I am so happy to return to the DSI teaching staff for my 16th year! As a DSI dancer, I trained in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Musical Theatre and Hip Hop. I was given opportunities to compete in various disciplines and successfully complete many exams; including top levels of graded RAD ballet exams, and the Advanced ADAPT jazz exam. I also completed a three-year teacher’s training program to obtain my ADAPT teaching certificate. I have now entered my own students into ADAPT jazz exams and choreographed competition numbers for the past 14 years. I am so grateful to be part of such a wonderful and inspiring team, which includes some of my teachers, my friends I grew up dancing with, and my former students! In 2017, I completed my studies at the University of Calgary obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish, as well as a Bachelor of Education and feel so lucky to share my love of teaching between the school classroom and the dance studio. I am looking forward to another season at DSI and am excited to share my passion and love of dance with all of my students.
