« Michelle Bedry is a knowledgeable and passionate dance instructor who helped me realize my love for dance at the age of 8. Although I had taken dance classes prior to joining Michelle’s tap class, learning from her was an unmatched experience that I cherish. For the following 10 years after our initial meeting, I looked forward to taking her classes which are both enjoyable and the right amount of challenging. Her teaching is never repetitive or dull and she is constantly expanding her teaching methods to keep you on your feet. It is clear to see that Michelle truly loves dance and wants the absolute best for her students. She has seen me through highs and lows and remained supportive and encouraging. Her vast knowledge of dance and overall kindness is beyond valuable and I could not possibly recommend her enough. »

Experienced dance instructor offering beginner through advanced classes in the Vancouver area.

Methodology

I structure each class to meet the individual needs of my student(s). I teach dance with discipline, as I have seen far greater results when there is structure and individualized expectations to meet. I work using a variety of teaching methods (verbal, demonstrative, written, etc) in order to find a way to best instruct a student.

Background

I have been teaching dance since 2009 in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, hip hop, musical theatre, and contemporary. I have entered hundreds of routines into competitions, advanced students to final championships, won choreography awards, and helped develop assistant teachers. I love dancing and wish to pass along the love of dance.

Michelle was a wonderful tap teacher who I had the privilege of studying under, both recreationally and competitively. I always looked forward to class because of the fun and safe environment she created. She knew when to push her students and when to offer additional support. Michelle was a great mentor to me, both inside and out of class!

Michelle was my dance teacher for several years and constantly made each practice enjoyable. She choreographed routines that were challenging and constantly encouraged her students. Not only has she helped me grow as a dancer, but also as an individual. Michelle always reminded us that if we ever needed to talk to someone, we could go to her. She was super supportive both in the studio and outside. She’s a positive, cheerful and lovely person to be around. The environment Michelle creates for her students is incredible. Taking lessons from her was rewarding and resembled hanging out with a close friend each week. I would recommend Michelle to anyone who’s looking to take classes in a fun, challenging and supportive environment.
