Trista trained at Peggy Peats School of Dance and Fabulous Feet School of Dance in jazz, tap, ballet, lyrical, modern,
contemporary, musical theatre and hip hop. Once she graduated Trista started teaching at Fabulous Feet, she realized at
this time yes it would be nice to be a dancer but knew it was her calling to teach. Trista was fortunate to be a part of the
closing ceremonies for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and is so grateful to have been a part of something that comes
once in a lifetime. For 5 years Trista worked for a Canadian dance competition touring around western Canada with Dance
Power. Being introduced to so many amazing people in the Alberta and B.C. dance world built her connections and lifelong friendships she is forever thankful
BC born and bred, there has never been a time when Jeremy wasn’t dancing. Studying all forms of dance, his training led him all over the world. On top of competing across Canada, the US and Europe, Jeremy was part of the original touring company, Tap Co. with the Vancouver Tap Society. After returning from the World Championships in Germany, he started his professional career with Occidental Resorts. Over the last 10 years, he spanned the globe aboard the ships of Carnival Cruise Lines. He was given the promotion to Dance Captain, allowing him to oversee all the shows on board. In addition to performances for the 2010 Winter Olympics, his choreography can be seen in Mexico, as part of a Goodwill tour to Cuba for the Canadian Ambassador, “All That Jazz” with the Naden band and Canadian College of Performing Arts, and a half hour show entitled “Icons” for the Disneyland Musical Theatre program, which he created together with his wife Tiffany.
