Miss Corrissa Thompson | Teacher
I am very excited to be back on team DSI for my seventh season this year as a teacher! I have been dancing since the age of 3 and came to DSI at the age of 5. During the time that I have spent at DSI I have completed some of the most advanced exams in Tap, Jazz and Ballet, including my Advanced Two RAD Ballet exam and my Advanced Adapt Jazz exam. I have also studied in many styles such as Musical Theatre, Hip Hop, Contemporary and Pointe. I was grateful to receive the award for Most Outstanding Ballet Dancer for the 2012-2013 season, and a scholarship for the Triple Threat Dance Convention in the 2011-2012 season. As well as dancing at DSI I have also been in Alberta Ballet’s production of A Midsummer’s Night Dream (2008) and Summerstock Calgary’s Musical Productions of Hairspray (2011) and Legally Blonde (2012). I’m happy to say that I danced competitively at DSI for 8 years achieving High Score awards and receiving scholarships. I currently hold my Certificate of Ballet Teaching Studies through the Royal Academy of Dance, as well as Certification from Acrobatic Arts to train students from the Primary level to level 8. This past summer I also completed the ADAPT Teacher Training School, certifying me in the ADAPT Jazz and Tap syllabus. I cannot wait to share all of the amazing knowledge these programs have provided me so far with my students in the 2019/2020 season.
