Dancers are known to be disciplined and focused. They are high-achievers, successful students and very hard workers.

Continuing on with our Summer Series Guest Workshops we’re thrilled to have @madisonffoley rejoining us this Wednesday, July 28th. 💫

Born and raised in Woodbridge ON, Madison began her training at the young age of 2 ½ at her family’s Dance studio Performing Dance Arts. Madison was born into a Dance Family that is well known across Canada & Internationally.

As an exceptionally gifted and highly trained dancer, recognized in Canada and the USA as one of the top Senior dancers in North America. She has won Canadian Soloist titles at Rhythm Dance, Hall of Fame, Be Dance, Move, Terpsichore Dance Canada and American Dance Awards. She has also won VIP status and the resultant invitations to North America’s premiere dance events including Jump Dance Convention, ASH Dance Convention, NUVO Dance Convention and 24/7 Dance Conventions.

Madison has been a top winning soloist for many years recently being awarded Top four status at “The Dance Awards” in New York City, Las Vegas and Orlando, Florida. She was named National Champion at the “Hall of Fame Nationals”. In 2016, 2017, & 2018 she was named Beat Squad Member and invited to appear on “Ellen”.

She has been studying at Armstrong Acting Studios, and early this year had the opportunity to do a commercial.
Madison is very thankful for all the opportunities that have come her way, in helping her to become the artist she is today. As she continues to train and develop her craft, Madison will never stop being a “Student.”

Come join us this Wednesday!✨
Open to ALL dancers.
Cost is $12+ tax.

Finishing out our #facultyfriday series is the heart & soul of BDC, Jolenne Bradley.

Ms.B (as she’s known around here) began dancing at the age of 7. By 16 she knew she wanted to go into business and commit her studies to dance education and making a positive difference within the dance industry.
 
Jolenne graduated from the Business and Fitness Management program from Cambrian College in 1995. She continued studies and graduated with honours in 1998 from the Cambrian College Dance Arts Educators program. In her final year she completed her membership with the Canadian Dance Teachers Association, Tap and Jazz Divisions.

Jolenne moved to Montreal to pursue her career as a dance teacher, opening many doors and contracts in the dance industry. Shortly after she became a member of the Professional Arts Educators of Canada early in its conception, working closely with other teachers to develop the jazz syllabus. After some time in the GTA, she had to follow her heart and pursue her dream of being a business owner. In 2003 she relocated to Barrie and established the Barrie Dance Conservatory, Inc.

This year marks 19 years in business.

Throughout her career, Jolenne has been recognized for achievements as a business owner and entrepreneur. She’s had the pleasure of mentoring many dance teachers and guiding them through their professional development. Her choreography has won numerous awards for technique & style. And students of BDC have received many opportunities through dance scholarships, auditions, and went on to work professionally in various aspects of the dance industry.
 
More recently in 2017 Jolenne graduated from the ADAPT teacher training program and was presented with an award in recognition for her outstanding essays. BDC is a curriculum-based studio using the ADAPT method of training, allowing students to take part in a certification program.
 
Jolenne is passionate about dance education and business ownership and will continue to advocate for the dance industry & provide the best for her clients and faculty. She can’t wait to see what the new season holds.💙

✨The Barrie Dance Conservatory acknowledges we are situated on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg people, which include the Odawa, Ojibwe, and Pottawatomi Nations collectively known as the Three Fires Confederacy. We also acknowledge the Wendat Nation (Huron) who occupied these lands prior to the middle of the 17th century.

Happy Canada Day to all of our dancers and their families.

We Canadians pride ourselves on being fabulous dancers. 💃🏻
