Acro, Hip Hop, Jazz & Tap Instructor
Clara has loved the performing arts, especially dancing, since she was a little girl, and she is now a triple threat performance artist.
She has 14 years of dance training in 8 genres, including 8 years at Steps Dance Centre. She also has 10 years of musical theatre training, including performing lead or leading roles in 9 full-scale musical theatre productions. Additionally, she's completed 2 years of choreography training, 8 years of classical, Broadway and contemporary voice training, and 10 years of music training on 4 instruments.
Over the years, Clara has won multiple scholarships and awards in many aspects of the performing arts, at festivals and competitions across BC and Alberta. In 2015, she was fortunate to win a major scholarship to attend a 6-week advanced musical theatre academy in Missoula, Montana, where she received direct training from multiple award-winning Broadway and Hollywood actors. She has also attended dozens of master classes and conventions in all aspects of the performing arts.
After having worked with children for the past 7 years in daycares, camps and community programs, choosing to blend my performing arts training and experience with her love for working with children seems like a perfect fit.
Clara plans to continue with her training now and throughout her life, so she can forever share her passion and be a teacher. She has completed her Acro training with Acrobatic Arts, and is continually looking for new opportunities to enhance her knowledge and teaching!
