DMC (Jazz, Tap, Acro) Graduate BBS entire curriculum
Shannon Morrison has been dancing with the Bracebridge School of Ballet since the age of 4. She started assisting in classes when she was 14-years-old and quickly realized her affinity for teaching. Under the wing of her mentor, Artistic Director Evelyn Finlayson-Kelly, she began teaching in 2007 and has been on our teaching staff full-time since then. She enjoys guest teaching in Muskoka and surrounding areas, but her heart lies here with us in Bracebridge! In 2013 Shannon won the YWCA’s Young Woman of Distinction award after being nominated by two students of BSB Dance Arts. She is currently certified with DMC (Dance Masters of Canada) in Jazz, Tap and Acro and is looking forward certifying with Acrobatic Arts in November 2017.
Shannon loves to teach dance because she loves being able to watch the students grow and progress in all areas: confidence, style, artistic abilities, attitude and performance and how that carries over into their everyday lives outside the studio. As the Assistant to the Artistic Director, you’ll see her face at the front desk often.
Shannon looks forward to watching our returning students grow and meeting many new faces this season!
David Walker is a Toronto based photographer specializing in performance photography. He also cottages in Muskoka and called us out of the blue one day looking for dancers to shoot. Since then we have formed a great relationship and he has photographed many of our students and instructors. The Ballet School is fortunate indeed to have David as a friend.
