Get to know the Prairie Diva Team!
Lavender is a passionate and encouraging instructor, who joined Prairie Diva in 2021. She teaches burlesque fusion dance classes for all levels of students, and also teaches private lessons for students who want choreography or coaching. She has a special soft spot for beginner students trying out dance for the first time, and wants to share the freedom that can be found in sensual movement. Lavender began her dance training focusing on ballet, and has travelled across North America for her professional training in various dance styles, both classic and commercial, which she uses to create works of all styles and genres, ranging from hip-hop to classic burlesque and almost everything in between! Also a company member of M Funk Dance Productions, you can find her performing and choreographing regularly for Prairie Diva showcases, doing burlesque, musical theatre works, and other dance routines with her fellow company members. Her classes encourage students to grow not only their technical abilities at their own pace, but also explore musicality, stage presence, and developing an artistic voice.
Chelsea began taking ballet, tap and jazz classes at the age of 3, and found a lifelong love of dance that goes hand-in-hand with her love of music. She dipped her toes into lyrical and ballet as she got older, but found her groove in hip-hop as a young adult. She began teaching with Royal Dance at 17, and has experience working with all ages and skill levels. She later branched out to teach for the City of Winnipeg for many years, as well as volunteer her time instructing inner city youth in after school programs. She took a step back from teaching at 29, leaving behind her much beloved adult tap, jazz and hip-hop classes.
She signed up for her first Prairie Diva session in 2016, and it was love at first class. She has performed in eight Prairie Diva showcases to date and debuted her first solo performance earlier this year. During the pandemic Meagan even taught a virtual routine to celebrate her birthday!
Chelsea loves the diversity and positivity that Prairie Diva embodies so well and has made so many close friends through classes. She is so excited to tap into her creativity and join the amazing and inspiring Prairie Diva faculty!
