Elise’s passion for dance came at the young age of five. Starting with various styles such as jazz, ballet, lyrical, hip hop and tap, dancing gave her some very memorable experiences that took her around North America and through her childhood. It wasn’t until later on in her teens that she branched out into teaching ballroom and competing professionally. Ten years later she hasn’t seem to “shake the dancing bug” and teaching people of all ages and levels has rewarded her with wonderful memories, accomplishments and opportunities.
Elise began her professional career in ballroom, training and teaching for an international studio here in Edmonton ten years ago, and then took her skills to the UK where she taught and performed in London through 2013.
Since then, Elise has found a passion for the health and wellness industry, and is a CanFit Pro certified instructor. In conjunction with her certification, Elise teaches other fitness programs known as MOC Barre Fitness Method, Myofascial Release, and Core Ryhthms, which allow her to use her vast dance background, bringing a fun, progressive, and strong technical element to her classes. Alongside these programs, she enjoys teaching young children, teens and adults of all ages and levels in numerous dance and fitness inspired programs, and continues to share her love for the dance and fitness industry.
