Our Spotlight series is back! Prairie Diva spotlights will showcase the amazing women who make up these dance classes. Every woman has a different story and journey through dance and we want to shine light on these women through these posts.
These women are unique and beautiful and give it their all each and every class with their high energy and positive spirits. Please let us introduce you to these amazing women!
Each of the Prairie Divas took part in a professional photo shoot with AMC Studio and answered a series of questions about themselves.
Introducing our first spotlight of 2019:
“What’s not too love about dance! I love being able to expressive myself through movements.”
When did you start dancing?
I started dance at the age of 4. My parents said I was always moving and grooving as a child. One of my life long friends and I started dancing together for socialization and it just stuck!
Favourite past times/other hobbies
I enjoy being active and outdoors. I like to play baseball, soccer and golf. I enjoy spending summers posted at the cabin/beach.
My day job
Social Worker by day and dance teacher by night.
Fun/interesting fact about me
I have been teaching dance for 10 years at Maples Academy of Dance. I teach the performance team tap classes. I have been dancing for 24 years and continue to try new styles!
Goals and aspirations
In the grand scheme of things I want to work with individuals and enable them to achieve the best possible levels of personal and social well-being; and working to achieve social justice through social development and social change.
How I first heard about Prairie Diva dance classes
I danced burlesque in my early twenties and had a blast. I wanted to get back into it and found Meagan and Prairie Diva classes!
What I like about burlesque fusion dance classes
I love the sassy dance movements that inspire confidence and empowerment. The classes are a judgement free zone where women empower women. I love that Burlesque fusion is upbeat and sultry that mixes elements of jazz and hip-hop dance.
Making friends & connections
I love my dance family! I’ve made connections through Prairie Diva and even rekindled a friendship.
What I’m most looking forward to with Prairie Diva’s classes
I look forward to Prairie Diva classes because it’s ME time.
