Alana Williams

Pre-Advanced Jazz Teacher 

 

My class will aim towards strengthening skills, learning new techniques and bringing forth performance! Expressing/finding every dancers’ strengths, talents and individualities are what I aim to explore and work on in my classes throughout the year! I would Recommend to have taken some ballet classes in the past (1-2 years). Have some jazz experience. (3-4 years approx.)

What does dance mean to you? Dance has been a part of my life for 16 years now! To me, dance means: freedom, passion, courage and individuality. Being able to express myself through this form of art has definitely helped shape me into the person that Ive become today. Over the years, I have truly been able to watch myself mature and gain the self confidence that I would have never been able to explore without dance! 

Favourite YouTube Channel: Bretman Rock 

Most memorable dance experience: Hall of fame Nationals in Florida with my former studio Joanne Chapman School of Dance!(2014)

Picture this: you fall on stage and the photographer managed to get a shot of you mid fall. What would you caption the picture? It’s not about how many times you fall, it’s about how many times you’re willing to get back up (but I probs wouldn’t)
