Tap and Ballet Instructor
Born and raised in London, England, Victoria began dancing at the tender age of 2 1/2 at a local dance school. Once old enough to dance competitively, she competed in competitions all over the United Kingdom and expanded her training with weekly classes at world renowned stage school, Sylvia Young's Theatre School. Once she had completed the BATD and RAD syllabus, she began teaching at Sylvia Young's as well as starting her own tap dance classes which ran for several years before work led her to Las Vegas. Victoria was lucky enough to dance professionally in several west end tours including a ballet production of Hansel and Gretel and for a high profile Bollywood concert series that toured England and Amsterdam. Having been lucky enough to work all over the world on various movies, dance took a backburner, but since settling in Canada and becoming a mother to 3 boys who also dance, the flame was reignited!
