Miss Chloe attended Panorama School of Dance Growing up in Surrey BC, training competitively in Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Tap, and Contemporary, however Ballet was where her heart found its focus. Her passion for ballet allowed her to successfully complete the entire Royal Academy of Dance – Graded and Vocational syllabus including participation in the Solo Seal Examination, as well as the Genée International Ballet Competition in London, UK.

Miss Chloe moved to Calgary, Alberta in 2015 to train in the Professional Graduate Program offered by the School of Alberta Ballet. During her time in Calgary, she worked to receive her Certificate in Ballet Teaching Studies through the Royal Academy of Dance, and successfully completed the course under the guidance of her mentor, Heather Price. Upon graduating the School of Alberta Ballet, she was accepted to dance with Ballet Victoria, and completed 3 seasons there. Chloe is passionate about this transition from dancer to teacher and motivator, encouraging and inspiring the youth at Karen Clark Dance Studio!

Over her many years of dancing, she has trained in numerous styles including Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Lyrical, Modern, Hip-Hop, Tap, Acro, and Pointe. Jasmyn has completed her ISTD Modern exams from Grade One up to Advanced One and successfully completed her ISTD Modern Theatre Teachers Associate exam in November 2020, earning her ISTD Teaching Diploma.

She has played numerous roles in the Sunshine Coast’s local production of the Nutcracker, starting with party girl at the age of 9, then progressing to Clara, Mirliton, Snow, Flower, Ballerina Doll, and Arabian Lead. Miss Jasmyn started dancing competitively at the age of 11 where she travelled to Poland to dance for Team Canada. Since then, Jasmyn has competed in many competitions achieving high awards for her group pieces, duets, solos, and choreography. Once she graduated in June 2020, Miss Jasmyn moved to Victoria where she started her post-secondary education here at the University of Victoria. She is entering her second year of the University of Victoria’s BSc Kinesiology program in hopes to become a physiotherapist. This past year, Jasmyn has been busy adapting to her life here in Victoria and the new experiences that come with university but has missed dance immensely. Miss Jasmyn has had a love for dance ever since she can remember and can not wait to finally get back to sharing this passion with her students at Karen Clark Dance Studio!
