Hi, I’m Denise 🙂
I originally started dancing when I was 6 years old to help correct an issue with my feet. Ballet was my first love, however when my family moved to Canada, my dance training was put on hold. The moment I had my own spending money, I immediately looked into returning to ballet. Sadly, ballet classes were full and Latin ballroom classes was one of my only options. Feeling optimistic, I decided to try it out and fell in love with the art almost instantly.
My dance coach taught me every dance move I know and I am extremely thankful to have had the pleasure of learning from her. Well, the rest is simple: I matured, met the love of my life, adopted our cute puppy, and got married. 5 years prior to this, however, my dance coach of 17 years decided I was ready to make my own path.
In 2013, I decided to open up my own studio and offer lessons to aspiring dancers from the beginner to professional. Today, ArtOfDance is a thriving Dance Studio which caters to anyone interested in learning.
Training in: Beginner Salsa & Bachata, Date Night Private Lesson, Intermediate Strictly Salsa, Latin Fit, Wedding Comprehensive, Wedding-Basic, Social Cha Cha, Private Lesson - Basic Dance & Latin Ballroom, Touch Bachata - Levels 2+, Wedding-Intermediate, Strictly Salsa
Planning our wedding, my fiancée and I were clueless about our first dance, let alone dancing in general. We're blessed to have met Denise and have come to find confidence, more interest, and enjoyment out of latin ballroom dancing. We can't wait to make you proud :D! - Yacoub & Rachael
My husband and I have been learning different forms of latin dance, and absolutely love Denise's weekly group classes. - Robin
I can't believe how much fun Denise is to be around, and how comfortable I feel learning to dance. My clumsy feet finally know what to do when the music starts at parties and events. Thank you so much Denise!
