“My kindergarten students always look forward to dancing as it gives them a chance to experience something that many would normally not be able to afford, or be taken to, on a regular basis. This program gives these inner city children a chance to explore an area that many cannot access on their own. Many of them blossom and discover a new way to express themselves through dancing. They have so much fun that they do not even realize all the invaluable skills that they are learning while they dance.”

“This high quality and unique dance program has been truly appreciated by all of my students, both boys and girls, year after year. Not only does it cover many aspects of the curriculum (PE, Arts, Social Responsibility ), it also encourages imagination and creativity in a unique and beautiful way. Having children practice dance in a safe, cooperative and inclusive environment like the one Anne-Michelle creates for them, is an extremely valuable experience which all of my students benefit from.”

“Anne-Michelle's dance program develops self-confidence and self-awareness in our young students as they are encouraged to freely express themselves through music and movement. Everyone's ideas are encouraged and valued. The program gives ALL of our students the opportunity to experience "dance and movement" with very professional instruction...something MANY of our students would NOT otherwise have the chance to have. Anne-Michelle has developed a program that takes into consideration the children's ages and abilities levels; as the children pass through the grades, from kindergarten to grade 2, you can see their skills developing and their confidence grow.”

“Dance at Strathcona School with Anne-Michelle has always been a favourite activity of the students I've taught over the 10 years I've been at Strathcona. They clap their hands and cheer when it's their turn for Dance. The students love using their imaginations to move, and express themselves freely, in the different worlds that Anne-Michelle creates for us using her music and fancy costumes.
