Aphra has been dancing throughout her whole life. Completing most of her initial training in the Professional Division at the School of Alberta Ballet in Calgary, there she received professional level instruction and exciting performance opportunities such as many years of participation in Alberta Ballet's The Nutcracker. During this time, she also completed the first of the three major final Cechetti method examinations before deciding to move on from the School of Alberta Ballet and finish her high school years dancing in a more creative setting. She spent the next three years at MacDonald Wilson Dance Academy and also dancing in the attached Dancers in Training performance company. Aphra came to Edmonton to study English and Biology at the University of Alberta and has made the city her home until 2018. She thoroughly enjoyed Edmonton’s exciting dance scene and spent her time in Edmonton dancing with J’adore Dance and the UofA Orchesis Dance group, where she has been a board member, choreographer, and performer. Aphra completed a year’s internship with J'adore in 2015/16 before coming aboard as an instructor and completed her Intellidance® method training in 2017. After spending a couple of happy years teaching at J'adore, Aphra has recently moved back to Calgary where she hopes to keep integrating Intellidance® into her work with children in the outdoors.
