Miss Corrissa Thompson | Teacher
Wowie! I can’t believe this is my eighth season being a teacher at DSI! 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, Contemporary, Hip Hop 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 Primary to level 8. I have also completed the ADAPT Teacher Training School, certifying me in the ADAPT Jazz and Tap syllabus. I cannot wait to be back in the studio again teaching my fabulous students during the 2020-2021 season!
