Liesa has always loved to dance. Her mom likes to say Liesa danced before she knew how to walk, which makes sense since she owned a dance studio before Liesa was born, and was her very first teacher. Throughout her training, Liesa studied jazz, musical theatre, lyrical, the Cecchetti Method, and even a little tap and hip hop, but ballet remained her first love. Liesa has been given many performance opportunities, including the role of Clara in Alberta Ballet's "The Nutcracker". She has achieved her Bachelor of Science in Psychology, completed the Edmonton Junior Years syllabus teacher training, finished Elementary Level Checchetti, and is a certified Intellidance instructor with over 10 years teaching experience.
Once Liesa added her own little dancers to her family, she knew she wanted them to join her in learning to love movement and dance and the warm, welcoming atmosphere of J'Adore Dance was the perfect fit. Helping other families discover a love of dance has been one of the greatest rewards of her career, and she is very excited to share that joy with her classes!
