Gaylene takes enormous joy in sharing her love of dance through teaching, choreography and performance.
Originally from Manitoba, Gaylene started dancing at the age of 7. At 16 she was given the opportunity to teach in her Hometown of Minnedosa. It was then that she discovered the immense rewards of working with children.
Gaylene relocated to Vancouver to dance & study acting. She now has over 20 years of teaching experience. She is CDTA certified in tap and stage & has a strong background in jazz and ballet. Gaylene has earned numerous choreography awards over the years. She has Industrial credits including principal dancer/actor in the tv pilot “A Screwball Homicide” and principal dancer in the feature film “Life or something like it”. She has appeared in many commercials including most recently Dairy Queen, Macy’s and Ziploc.
Gaylene continues to share her fun, positive enthusiasm with students & in her spare time can be found chasing after her three adorable, rascally kids.
