Rae Whone

Administration Manager


Rae Whone, Office Manager Usually, one of the first smiles you see when you walk in the door, is Encore’s Office Manager – the amazing Rae Whone. Rae has been keeping the studio on track for the past 10 years. She became involved in the dance industry in Surrey, BC when her daughters danced. Having danced herself as a teenager and even later as an adult, her knowledge and experience has made her a very integral part of the operations at our studio.


NUMEROUS types of jobs and hobbies in her past – (her first job was in commercial fishing!) make for fascinating conversations when you get a minute to chat. As a Scholarship recipient, Rae attended UVIC in their theatre department. We certainly realize how handy this comes in when we are participating at competitions and recitals. Currently Rae lives in Surrey, BC with her husband Steve and is enjoying her special role as Grandmas to Madison, Hallie and Avery. Rae's favourite quote is "Dance like there’s no tomorrow"
