Intellidance® is a unique series of creative dance programs created to foster critical development in children ages 0-5. Research shows that dance and music activities offered in a loving, safe, multi-sensory environment enhance life long learning and neural development.
Come and learn how dance, music, and play can nurture early neural development, while strengthening the caregiver-baby bond! Each week will introduce a new development topic to help you understand how to support your baby's growth. Dance and music concepts will be introduced through circle dances, free exploration, songs and rhymes, and sensory activities that help foster your baby's cognitive, emotional, and physical health. Caregivers will delight in watching their little ones grow and learn while making friends and socializing with others.

Liesa began dancing at the age of 3 at her mother’s studio. It was here that she first discovered her love of movement and dance. Liesa’s sister Vanessa and her niece Kiana also began dancing at the same young age, making three generations of dancers in the family! Liesa trained in many dance disciplines including Jazz, Contemporary, Hip-Hop, Musical Theatre, and Ballet, which remains her first love. Liesa has been given the opportunity to perform in many dance productions, including the role of Clara in Alberta Ballet’s “The Nutcracker”. Liesa completed the Edmonton Junior Years syllabus teacher training and has presented her own original choreography in Dancers’ Studio West Showcase, Dance Explosions. She can still be found helping her mom choreograph dance classes, and rehearsing them in their home studio, also known as the kitchen! After completing her Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Psychology at the University of Alberta, Liesa wanted to find a new and exciting way to share her love of dance. The fun and welcoming atmosphere of J'Adore Dance was the perfect fit. Liesa is a certified Intellidance Instructor, is very excited to be teaching with J'Adore Dance and can’t wait to share her love of dance, excitement and enthusiasm with her classes!
