Barrie Dance Conservatory

We’re an Adapt Certified, RAD + Cechetti Ballet, Curriculum based studio where dancers advance levels while receiving certification, experience, and exposure within the industry. ⁣We teach for the future!

Operating as usual

Next up we have Mr. Sacha, @sachaxpena, who is our Hip Hop teacher here at Barrie Dance Conservatory and has been a part of our faculty since 2015.

Sacha has been trained in various styles such as Hip Hop, Contemporary, and Jazz, and was a competitive dancer for 11 years, 4 of them being at BDC.

He is an award-winning choreographer & has trained at multiple conventions and workshops around the province. Another highlight is his @buildabeast.experience with Janelle Ginestra, and William “Wildabeast” Adams, held in Los Angeles. Sacha has also worked with SYTYCD judge, Tre Armstrong, and award-winning Choreographer, Tony Tzar (2020). In 2016, he won first place on the Canada wide talent TV show, Galala.

Currently Sacha is studying Kinesiology, and Health Science at York University.

We are so proud of his commitment and dedication to continue his training as a hip hop educator & we love having him as a part of the BDC family.
