Lisa Fisher - Owner/Director

As the mother of a dancer for over 15 years I never dreamed that one day I would own a studio of my own.  That all changed in July 0f 2012 and I'm absolutely thrilled to have introduced the world of dance to so many children since then.  My goal is to create an inclusive environment for all persons who wish to make dance a part of their life story.

Kylah Powell - Contemporary and Modern

     Kylah Powell is a Vancouver born resident who attended on scholarship and graduated with a BFA in dance (with a focus on Modern) from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. She studied dance under Leni Wylliams, Mary Pat Henry and Paula Webber, and also spent a summer in New York as a student at the Alvin Ailey Dance Centre. 
     Kylah has been teaching for over 20 years, with her choreography winning numerous awards throughout the Lower Mainland, including “Choreography of entire Dance Power Festival” for 5 years. She has performed in various festivals over the years, and her choreography has been showcased in the B.C. Festival of Arts, among many other events. In 2009, she choreographed and performed in a short film titled ‘Swell Season’, which screened at the Chicago International Film & Music Festival. During that time she was also part of Project CPR, a project focusing on the choreographic process, directed by Claire French. Choreographers included Sara Coffin, Heather Laura Gray and Caroline Liffman. Kylah’s most memorable moment came in 2010, when she danced in the Vancouver Olympic Opening Ceremonies! Since then, she has been focussing on her company (see below), and in 2015 performed a piece in a segment entitled ‘This Is A Full Length’, as part of the Dance In Vancouver Festival. In May of 2018, Kylah’s work was selected to be showcased in a special Gala celebrating BC’s 160th, held at the Vancouver Playhouse.

     Kylah was a national level competitive gymnast for many years, competing both locally and out of province and country. This experience proved to be invaluable, as the teaching and choreographing of circus arts at Cirkids became another creative aspect to her life.
     In 2005, Kylah formed CollabArt Creations, a contemporary dance company whose goal is to showcase the artistic collaboration of dancers, performers, and artists of various mediums in the public domain. She has produced and choreographed several full-length shows throughout the Lower Mainland, all of which were well received by enthusiastic audiences! CollabArt Creations has collaborated with artists including choreographers, dancers, photographers, painters, film directors/producers.

Vanessa Quarinto - Ballet, Musical Theatre, Song & Dance

     Vanessa was born and raised in southern Italy until the age of six, when her family was fortunate enough to immigrate to Canada. At nine years old, she was finally enrolled in her first ballet class -- where she fell in love with dance (as she knew she would!) and never looked back. She is classically trained in Cecchetti ballet, jazz, and lyrical. Additionally, she supplemented her dance training with active participation in workshops, choirs, private voice lessons, acting classes, and musical theatre performances. After graduation she proceeded to obtain a degree in literature and writing from the University of British Columbia, all while performing in and choreographing local shows for charity as well as teaching in community centers and daycares throughout the lower mainland. Favourite credits include Diana Morales in A Chorus Line (Fighting Chance Productions), Iris Kelly in Fame (UBC), and choreographer for RENT (UBC-SSM). Currently, Vanessa enjoys teaching dance and theatre arts to students of all ages and levels of experience. She is continually striving to learn and grow both as an artist and a teacher, and is most recently working towards completing her Cecchetti Associate qualification. As a teacher, she endeavors to foster a love of the performing arts and to promote connection, compassion, and creative expression in all of her students.
