Libby Avalos – | Lead EDGEucator, School Program Coordinator

I have dedicated over 30 years to the Art of Dance, with at least half  of those years including teaching in one form or another.  When I  “retired” from the stage a few years ago, and refocused on teaching, I  quickly realized that I had a strong passion for exposing the masses to the JOY that dancing brings (when taught right!). Then I discovered The GROOVE. I quickly recognized that this was not exactly a ‘dance program’…

GROOVE is the great equalizer.  Whether you are an experienced dancer, or have never stepped foot on a dance floor. We ALL love to feel connected, feel accepted, to have fun, play, and be creative…some people just need a little more help getting there. When they do, the mind-body connection, confidence, and empowerment experienced is un-matchable.

Outside of schools, I work as a dance teacher, choreographer, and adjudicator. I am also the artistic director of the Markham Theatre’s youth theatre camp programs. Spreading the messages of The GROOVE has become an important part of my focus as an arts educator. The performing arts can do so much for mental and physical health in all ages. By giving students the permission to accept and BE their own UNIQUE selves, and practice that in movement, I witness valuable life skills developing daily. It is an amazing blessing to be able to deliver this program and spread the messages everywhere I go!
