Dance Teacher Calgary

Breanne Johnson-Lee

Artistic Director/Owner

Breanne grew up dancing here in Calgary, taking various classes in Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Lyrical, Modern/Contemporary, Pointe, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre, Swing, African, Latin Styles, Ballroom, Funk, Choreography and Improvisation. She graduated in June of 2004 from the University of Calgary with a BA in Dance, where she had an opportunity to work with some incredible choreographers and teachers. Breanne has been teaching dance both recreationally and competitively for the past twenty-four years. She has also taught dance in both the public, separate and private school systems, where she has incorporated dance into the students’ curriculums, physical education programs as well as dance programs. Over the years, Breanne has done choreography for various groups throughout the city which included Dance Montage at the University of Calgary, Central Memorial High School’s “Dance Central Showcases,” Alberta Dance Explosions at Dancer’s Studio West, Calaway Park, Dance The World at the Jack Singer Concert Hall and Velocity Motionwerks, National Tap Dance Day and Dance of Thrones 2. She is extremely passionate about sharing her knowledge and love for dance with her students, which is why she decided to open Soul To Sole Dance Company Ltd. in September of 2005, which had always been a dream of hers. Breanne is an active member of the Wild Rose Dance Arts Association, where she enjoys staying connected to and volunteering within the dance community in Calgary. Many of Breanne’s students have won several prestigious awards and scholarships in competitions/festivals throughout Alberta, have received top marks for their ADAPT Tap and Jazz exams and some have even gone on to dance professionally and attend University dance programs and classes. She still continues to study dance and attends workshops and classes, which she believes is important when it comes to teaching, as dance is a forever changing art form. Breanne also has experience adjudicating at competitions/festivals which she really enjoys, as it gives her an opportunity to give constructive feedback in a positive atmosphere, where she hopes that dancers and teachers can push themselves even further in their artistic and creative expressions.
