Fiona is a fully trained professional dancer in classical as well as many other styles of movement and dance. Born in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK, she began dancing at the age of 6 and at the age of 14 won the Northern Ballet Scholarship. At 16, she went on to undergo 3 years of professional full time training. Two years were completed at The Arts Educational School of London, where she obtained her “Royal Academy Of Dancing Advanced Examination” (ARAD) and one year at The Central School of Ballet; where she was sponsored and funded by “The Prince’s Trust”.
She began performing immediately after her training and has traveled, working in some of the most prestigious revues around the world, such as The Moulin Rouge in Paris. In her long list of performance contracts she has worked in theatre, cruise ships, television, film, video clips and modeling ranging from Soloist and Principle parts as well as Captain, Assistant Choreographer and Company Manager.
Fiona performed up until she met her husband who was from Oakville and after 20 years of performance, she moved to Canada and produced 3 beautiful children. To assist in her training, since the age of 16 Fiona has always taken part in a wide range of fitness classes either as a teacher or participant. After devoting over 7 years solely to her children she is now very happy to be teaching again. She has always insisted the best form of exercise is dance related and is very inspired to pass on her knowledge and passion of the technique.
