Miss Courtney Cholette
AcroDance, Hip Hop, Lyrical Jazz, Stage
Born and raised in Abbotsford BC, Miss Courtney graduated from Yale Secondary and has been instructing dance for the past 5 years.
Miss Courtney began training at the age of 6 in Hip Hop and Musical Theatre, and absolutely fell in love with dance. She continued her studies and began competing in Ballet, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Song + Dance, Modern, Contemporary, Tap, Lyrical Jazz and Hip Hop categories.
Miss Courtney has completed the Royal Academy of Dance grades 1 – 8, with distinction. After her student years in the studio, she furthered her experience by co-directing and performing with a dance crew based out of Abbotsford. In fact, Miss Courtney will take upon any opportunity to dance and perform!
Miss Courtney has attended multiple dance conventions to keep her skills current and learn from some amazing choreographers, and has recently completed a course held by the International Dance Teaching Standards (IDTS), and Rhythm Works Integrated Dance (RWID).
Miss Courtney is excited to be able to help, motivate, and inspire young dancers to find their passion through the art of dance. It helped her tremendously as a young girl, to break through her shy exterior into a confident woman, and she wants to do the same for other dancers. She believes everyone deserves the chance to dance and to express themselves through movement and music.
Miss Courtney is thrilled to be a part of Driftwood Dance Academy!
