Diversity Dance and Performing Arts

🔆DIVERSITY ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT - Miss Anna Jones🔆 I started dancing at Diversity when I was 12 years old. I had previously danced in England since the age of 2 and did my first recital to The Little Mermaids “Under the Sea”. When I started at Diversity I went into the advanced classes and did my first competition season that year. I danced for the next 6 years in all the genres at the studio. I competed in many group and solo competition numbers. I became an Inturn and volunteered with younger dancers every year right up until I became a teacher at the studio.

I graduated High School in 2017 and I am currently a teacher at Diversity and cover the front desk. I will be starting an Early Learning & Child Care Course in the Fall of 2018 and wish to work with pre-school children once I graduate. I still have a love for dance and hope that I can continue teaching for many years to come. I have also made some lifelong friends in both fellow students and teachers.

As a student, Diversity was I place I could go and ‘hang out’ with people who had the same love for dance that I did. I could escape into the world of dance and express myself in a way that wasn’t possible in any other way. It gave me the confidence to make decisions and grow in a safe and friendly environment. It also gave me a passion and something to focus on, and taught me commitment, confidence and leadership.

Now that I am a teacher at Diversity I want to pass on the passion that I had. To help my students become confident in what they do and can achieve. To show them it is alright to fail, and the joy is in what you are doing, not always the awards you achieve. To teach them to respect others, and go for what they want as anything is possible.

I know that without the experiences I had at Diversity I wouldn’t be the person I am today – I will forever have a special place for Diversity in my heart.

Diversity Dance and Performing Arts

🔆DIVERSITY ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT - Miss Veronika Kowalczyk🔆 Dancing at Diversity was a memorable experience for me. From 2011-2015, the studio was home, not only because of the many hours spent there, but because of the support, encouragement, and charm it was filled with.

The studio offered me many opportunities, such as being on Team Diversity in routines including Every Time it Rains, Stretched on Your Grave, When You're An Addams, and Becoming a Geisha.
I brought home my first medal, won my first dance award, and soon after, performed my first duet. I brought home my first pair of Pointe shoes [will never forget wearing them with only lambs wool] which still hang in my room, and co-choreographed a routine with a friend for the first time in the Purple Studio.

What I got out of Diversity were some of the best friendships one can ask for. Although not many, I cherish the ones still there, and wish all the other dancers the best.

Thanks to Diversity, I always stand in fifth position, perform 'across the floor' combinations in every hallway, and pirouette on every slippery floor.

Currently I am studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of British Columbia and yes, my ankles still crack during lectures. I continue to choreograph in my spare time, and despite being a former dance instructor in my senior year of high school, I guest teach every once in a while.

I often open my dance bag, watch old recital videos, or go through costumes and think about all the times I had at Diversity. I am very grateful for all the memories at Diversity for they have shaped me into the person I am today. Thank you to the Diversity teachers that believed in me, and for never letting us forget that "the floor is your friend".
