Miss Valerie: Tuesday Acro & Saturday Preschool Classes
Miss Valerie is one of our new teachers at Ignite and we are thrilled to have her on board. Miss Valerie will be teaching the Tuesday Acro & Saturday preschool classes 😃
BIO | Hi, my name is Miss Valerie and I’m so excited to come back to Ignite as a Teacher! I trained at Ignite as a student from age 4 to 17 in all styles and competed throughout the years as a soloist and a part of troupes.
I then went on to complete a Diploma in Performing Arts and Dance Teaching at Brent Street Performing Arts.
Following all my training I have been signed with Focus Talent Agency where I have participated in several productions, most recently appearing in the latest Mcdonalds Ad.
I am super excited to work with the students at Ignite and utilise all the tools I’ve learned so far in the industry.
Miss Santiana: Pre-Junior Contemporary & Tap, Pre-Teen/Open Hip Hop & Acro
Santiana is currently studying for a Diploma in Performing Arts (Elite Performance) at Brent Street Studios. She has always had a passion for dancing and performing since her early childhood. She started dancing at the age of 6 and started training seriously to become a professional dancer when she was 12. She has trained in jazz, hip hop, tap, contemporary, lyrical, musical theatre and ballet and has been part of many prestigious competitions and shows during her high school years. During these years, Santiana has developed her own style which is more of an urban/commercial style of dance and would love to share the knowledge and experience she has acquired so far with the children at Ignite Dance.
