Become a Triple Threat!

Our musical theatre program uses a combination of Laban movement techniques, Improvisation and acting, vocal exercises, and dance choreography to create well rounded theatre program. The focus of this program will be on creating production numbers, those big musical numbers that steal the show! Scenes leading in and out of the musical numbers will also be a part of the program.

Each class will consist of a vocal warm up, movement warm up, drama exercise, vocal practice and choreography. The MT curriculum has been developed by Ms Daelyn and Ms Chantel to create an dynamic well rounded program. 


Full-Year Commitment

At J’Adore Dance we view our dancers as part of our community. As a community, we expect families who enter our program to be ready to commit to a full year program, including a special theatre recital (Dates listed in Policy Handbook). Our theatre recital allows special friends and family members to view our dancers’ hard work and give your dancer the opportunity to perform on stage! If you are unsure if your family can make a full year commitment we highly recommend registering in one of our sessional preschool or kids programs.

Chantel

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF FULL YEAR PROGRAMMING - OWNER

When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way. ~Wayne Dyer

Chantel Sampson has been dancing since the age of three. A lifelong passion for dance has continued to fuel her spirit. Her background includes tap, jazz, ballet, contemporary, modern, ballroom, and Irish Dance. She has studied and trained under many talented teachers from across Canada and the United States. During university, her parents exposed her to the world of ballroom dance where she met her husband and lifelong dance partner. After extensive training with coaches from across Canada and the United States and seven successful years in competition including three top 3 placements at the Canadian Championships, Chantel felt it was time to explore a new genre of dance and began training in Irish Dance. Her Adult Ceili team holds three North American Irish Dance Championship titles and an All Ireland Ceili Championship title. Chantel is a member of the Performing Arts Medical Association, Yamuna Practitioner Association and ALFCA . Through  these organizations she continues to further her training in the areas of dance education and dancer wellness.Chantel received her Bachelor of Education degree with distinction in Elementary Education from the University of Alberta in 1998 and has always brought her love of dance into her teaching. Chantel was nominated for an Excellence in Teaching Award, developed and implemented dance programs in three Edmonton Catholic Schools, directed and choreographed over 20 musicals, presented at several ATA Fine Arts Conferences, and continues to work on developing dance curriculum.  She believes that every child should have the opportunity to express themselves through dance and has developed curriculum integration documents for grades K-6 bringing dance and movement into each outcome of the program of studies.  Chantel embraces the philosophy of dance as a universal form of expression. In 2007, after many years of teaching school and community-based dance programs, Chantel founded her own dance company, “For The Love of Dance”. Her teaching provides children and adults an opportunity to explore different dance and movement styles in a non-competitive, supportive environment. For Chantel, dance is a family affair and she has always been excited to share dance with her parents, husband, and three beautiful children. She is happiest when on the dance floor.  Chantel partnered J'Adore dance's original owner Jessica Baudin-Griffin in 2015 to continue to develop and expand the studio's award winning programming.  In 2016 Jessica made a change to pursue the expansion of Intellidance and Chantel joined forces with former dance team member Jenna Brenan to take J'Adore into its next decade of award winning programming!

Chantel in holds additional certifications in Yamuna Body Rolling, AFLCA with Portable Equipment, First Aid ad CPR-C, Youth Protection Association for Dance and Youth Mental Health First Aid, a Certificate in Performing Arts Healthcare through the American College of Sports Medicine and in Pre and Post Natal Fitness, Intellidance instruction, Infant Massage Instructor Certification from Trimesters Massage.
