Elise is an Ontario Certified Teacher who grew up in Collingwood, Ontario. When she was three her parents enrolled her in ballet and she fell in love right away! Dance quickly became her outlet and happy place. It showed her the positive impact that physical activity could have on one's overall health, and gave her a way to express herself. 

However, as she got older and her training intensified, and she found that increasing emphasis was placed on performance and physical appearance. 

In 2018, she discovered DANCEPL3Y while attending teacher’s college at Queen’s University. Right away she wanted to know more about the program, because the message behind it aligned perfectly with her personal philosophies around dance and mental health.

So, she completed the DANCEPL3Y Kids online course and hasn't looked back since!

As a PL3Y Instructor her goal is to give children a different experience with dance than the one she had by exposing them to different styles, in a safe space where they feel comfortable to be themselves.
