Miss Mya has been dancing since she was 2 years old and hasn’t stopped since. She started in ballet and tap and added more disciplines as she grew. At her current age of 15 she has studied ballet (Cecchetti and Vaganova), tap (Al Gilbert), jazz, contemporary, lyrical, musical theatre, pointe and hip hop.
When she was 13 she started in the student teaching program at her studio and loved every minute of it! After moving to Overdrive this year she has now had many opportunities to grow as a teacher. She is thrilled to be instructing her own 6 week classes as well as birthday parties this year! Miss Mya has a passion for teaching and loves all of the kids she has the honour of getting to know.
Miss Mya started competing in her studios competitive team when she was 10 years old, and has gone to competitions all over alberta. She loves to be on stage and has continued that by taking her own classes this year at Overdrive in their level 4 program. One of Miss Mya’s biggest accomplishments is traveling to Disneyland where she danced in 2 parades and performed in their showcase with her studios performing company.
Throughout her life, Miss Mya has gone to many workshops to better her knowledge of the dance world. Some of which include; Pure Dance and classes at The Edge studio in L.A and with the NXG company here in Edmonton. She has also performed at many public events such as The Festival of Trees, The Children's Festival and at the Edmonton German Society.
Miss Mya has always wanted to be able to share her love of dance with those around her and is so excited to have the opportunity to do so! She looks forward to meeting you and your wonderful kids!
