Miss Shannon is an enthused dance teacher and former studio owner who loves teaching and is inspired by her students every day.  She has worked towards several certifications lately including iTap Online, Zena Rommett Floor Barre, Mental Health First Aid, and Martha Graham Teaching Intensive with
world renowned masters and creators in dance.  Miss Shannon believes she makes a good teacher because she is a good student and has a lifelong passion of learning.  She is a Member of the Canadian Dance Teachers Association in Ballet and believes Ballet is the basis of all dance.  It is one of the most challenging styles, but it improves technique and supports a healthy and holistic approach to dance studies that will serve a dancer’s body and mind for a lifetime.  

Miss Shannon is a graduate of The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City and holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from The New School University in New York.  Her love of tap dance from an early age filtered into all genres when she attended Red Bank Regional High School of Performing Arts as a dance major in New Jersey.  She has managed several projects and worked with several reputable performing arts organizations including but not limited to Neptune Theatre, Halifax Dance, and Lunenburg`s Boxwood Festival.  She has run her own studio for over 10 years and has taught for well over 20.  She is very excited to bring her expertise and knowledge to KPAC with a fresh outlook on an inclusive and non-competitive approach.  Her students thrive in this environment and she is the proud founder of Kinship Performing Arts Centre Association.
Kerenza Verburg
Board Member, Dance Teacher, CDTA Associate, Progressing Ballet Technique Certified, Movement Method Certified,BSc Medical Sciences, First Aid Certified, and Mental Health First Aid Certified

Kerenza started ballet when she was 3 years old and hasn’t stopped dancing since. The majority of Kerenza’s classical ballet training took place in Belgium, where she learned from teachers from the Royal Ballet School of Antwerp. Besides ballet, Kerenza also gained a lot of experience in contemporary, jazz, modern, and even Latin/ballroom. Further, she was fortunate enough to have taken many workshops from professional choreographers and dancers, including her personal favourite: Isabelle Beernaert.
After moving to Canada, Kerenza continued to dance and grew into her role as an instructor whilst she worked on getting her Medical Sciences degree. Medical Sciences degree now in hand, she looks forward to teaching even more classes at Kinship Performing Arts Centre this year.
Kerenza is passionate about teaching and strives to provide her students with a solid foundation and technique, while also fostering their individuality. She further believes that dance is for everyone, and is thrilled to be bringing Inclusive Movement to the South Shore. Kerenza hopes to provide a safe, accepting, and fun learning environment where her students can feel comfortable expressing themselves through dance.
