Hi. I'm Blake.
I am a dual citizen of the US and Canada living in Windsor, Ontario. After a successful commercial dance career in Los Angeles, my wife and I had the opportunity to open a studio of our own, Dance Barre in her home town of Windsor, Ontario where we now reside. Dance Barre is going into it's 14th season and proudly shares the love of dance with over 850 students on a weekly basis.
Spanning a dance career of over 20 years, I have not only worked with some of L.A.'s top choreographers (Mandy Moore, Sonya Tayeh, Tyce Diorio, Marguerite Derricks, Micheal Rooney) in television, film, commercials and stage tours, (Ipod, Old Navy, Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Ricky Martin, "Bring it On"), but have now been training dancers on a day to day basis. I bring my students not only personal professional industry guidance, but also concentrate on the stepping stones of strong technical and movement foundations. Guiding dancers from the very beginning stages of their dance training, through graduation and on, has given me the insight and experience to provide both inspirational and educational classes. As a dance educator, my most treasured moments are seeing dancers make the little connections that lead to big results!
Whether it be masterclasses, choreography, or adjudication, I would love the opportunity to work with your company!
