Jaime Cooney

Jaime began dancing at a very young age and realized right away that this was her passion. She has since been examined at the Associate teaching level with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (I.S.T.D.) in the Modern Theatre and Tap Faculty receiving the highest marks of Distinction and Honors. In addition to her teaching qualifications, Jaime holds the Advanced 2 level dancing certificates in both Modern and Tap receiving Honors as well. She was awarded her Associate teaching degree with the Canadian Dance Teachers Association (C.D.T.A) in addition to her Silver level Latin American Medal in dancing. Jaime has also been successfully examined at the Intermediate level with the Cecchetti Ballet society. Throughout her teaching career Jaime has entered numerous students for their dance examination as well as their teaching qualifications with the I.S.T.D. All receiving top marks. These graduates can be found teaching throughout St. John’s, Toronto and Alberta.

With over 25 years of teaching experience, Jaime believes that upgrading her dance training is imperative to keeping her teaching style and choreography cutting edge and fresh. She has trained across North America with some of the world’s top Choreographers. These instructors have worked alongside artists such as Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Rihanna and Beyonce.
