Ronin Remers - Ballet, Pointe, Musical Theatre, Hip Hop, Competitive
After finishing Post-Secondary and moving back to the local area, I knew I wanted to continue dancing. My dance journey started here at GBSD when I was 4 years old, and the studio became my happy place. Here I have trained in all forms of Dance from Tap and Jazz to Hip-Hop and Pointe, with both recreational and competitive programs. I have been most passionate about ballet, training through the National Royal Ballet, and travelling across the province for workshops and professional development. In my spare time you’ll probably find me obsessing over my two cats, Cheddar and Link, or taking care of my beloved house plants. I love music and any excuse to be outside enjoying nature. I strive to make my classes just like my original happy place, a safe environment for all to freely express themselves, regardless of their background or ability. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to continue sharing my love of dance with the community, I CAN’T WAIT to see you all in the fall! Start stretching!

Ever since she was little Shayla has loved to dance, and was able to grow her skills through classes here at GBSD. Over 10+ years of dancing experience, she has developed a strong passion for dance as a sport, expression, and art form. Throughout the years, Shayla has practiced many dance styles and has competed in various competitions. Although she loves many styles, she has a special place in her heart for Hip Hop, as it is the first style she practiced. Shayla began her dance teaching journey here at GBSD as an Assistant Teacher, and is a certified Assistant Teacher with the International Dance Teaching Standards. Since then, she has continued to grow her skills as a Student Teacher with opportunities to share her skills at a competitive level, receiving both overall and special awards.
