Miss Isabella Alatorre | Teacher

I am beyond excited to start my fourth year of teaching here at DSI! I have been dancing since I was three years-old and cannot wait to share my personal knowledge  about dance with all of my students.  I have been part of three different dance schools, including one in Mexico, Fort McMurray, and finally DSI.  Throughout my fifteen years of dance I have had the opportunity to work with incredible mentors and build a passion for dancing that I carry with me through this day.  I have been trained in Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Lyrical, Musical Theatre, Hip Hop, and Pointe. In 2012 I was awarded the Judge’s Star in my Lyrical solo category in the Northern Dance Off, a newly found competition in Fort McMurray.  From 2014-2018 I was one of the many wonderful DSI understudies, and I am delighted to keep working with young dancers.  In 2019 some friends and I founded UC Dance Company, a new dance team at the University of Calgary where we perform at DINOS sporting events and we organize fundraisers. DSI teachers have helped me grow and understand what it means to be a role model, and I cannot wait to pass it on to the young ones and build relationships to help them grow as dancers and more.
