Leanne Bradshaw

Leanne has come to us from Dundas, Ontario where she grew up dancing since the tender age of 3. She has been trained in all styles of dance; ballet, tap, jazz, acro, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, breakdancing and ballroom. She has competed across Canada and United States with high level of achievement, winning many national titles. After High School Leanne studied at George Brown College in Commercial Dance Studies, a triple threat program. After Graduating she worked with and choreographed for many dance companies including Honeykatz, N.V.US, and The Toronto Marlies Dance Team plus many more all over the Greater Toronto Area. Leanne also auditioned for the TV show “So You Think You Can Dance - Canada” and where she advanced to the top 50! 

Leanne has been training students of all ages and styles since her early years as a studio student.  Leanne is now certified in the “Acrobatic Arts” Curriculum. This in addition to years of experience in acro and gymnastics makes her an excellent Acro teacher.  We are pleased Leanne has moved to Sarnia to grow her family and join our faculty.
