Sandra attended her first ballet dance class at age 3 in her hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Throughout her childhood she studied and competed in many dance styles such as Tap, Jazz, Modern, and Hip Hop all in addition to Ballet. Sandra joined her first Ballroom group class at age 7. By 12 years old, she knew that Ballroom was the style she wanted to focus on. She had the opportunity to travel North America and compete with her teachers.
In 1999, Sandra began teaching Ballroom Dance at an independent studio in Edmonton, where she achieved her Full Bronze Teachers Certification, travelled and competed with students, and continued to develop the craft that she is passionate about.
2005 brought her the opportunity to work for a franchised dance school in Toronto. After a year of being away from home, she decided to return to Edmonton where she continued with the same franchised school until 2020. During her years at the studio, she achieved an Associate Gold Level Teaching Certification.
Sandra is thrilled to share her passion for dance with the Elite Team.
