Miss Wendy Nelson | Director
I grew up dancing in Calgary and found my love for teaching at an early age. After opening DSI in 1994, I have been so privileged to teach so many wonderful individuals. I have seen students grow from Preschool to the highest levels of Tap and Jazz, graduate from University, get married and start families of their own!
Over the years I have traveled with students to Chicago, New York, Boston, Orlando, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Disneyland. I am so proud of former students who’ve continued their love of dance, and their accomplishments include: choreographing Madonna’s world tour, competing on the TV show “America’s Best Dance Crew”, dancing in the Las Vegas Cirque du Soleil show “LOVE”, acceptance into Julliard, The Royal Winnipeg Ballet School and dance contracts on Princess Cruise Lines. I am equally proud of my former students who have turned into exceptional DSI staff members, now sharing their own passion for dance with our DSI students.
Owning DSI for the last 24 years has given me this incredible opportunity to watch so many great dancers grow up to become successful young adults. As I proudly look back at our incredible Alumni, I am still so excited to walk into the studio each year, to teach our next generation of DSI students.
