Alumni, Guest Choreographer

Miss Colleen has spent most of her life dancing. Now an alumnus of Arcade Dance Arts, she has trained in Contemporary, Modern, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Ballet.

She has taken her love for dance outside of the studio, starting a dance team at her high school, choreographing the musical in her senior year, and frequently participating in dance and musical theatre performances.

Miss Colleen continues to dedicate herself to growing as a dancer and teacher. Since moving to Ottawa to attend Carleton University, she has taken dance classes at the local studios there. Additionally, she became a member of Carleton University Dance Crew (CUDC) which has given her the opportunity to perform at events all over Ottawa while also choreographing, teaching, and performing various Contemporary, Hip Hop, Tap, and African routines for their annual showcases. She was elected an executive member of CUDC for their 2018-2019 dance season and is now instructing dance in the Ottawa area.
