Performing Dance Arts Congratulates Former Student Amanda Cleghorn for Booking Taylor Swift's 2014 Tour
Performing Dance Arts (http://www.PerformingDanceArts.ca), Toronto's leading dance studio for children of all skill levels, is congratulating former student Amanda Cleghorn for continuing her run as the lone Canadian dancer on Taylor Swift's 2014 RED Tour.
"How can parents know their children are receiving the best dance lessons possible? They can look at the dance instructor's credentials, as well as consider the success of past students," says Ashley Daychak, artistic director at Performing Dance Arts. "For starters, Performing Dance Arts is one of the few studios in Canada where all of the teachers, including those leading the recreational programs, have their teaching certificates."
On top of that, she adds, the success of past students reflects on the quality of instruction at Performing Dance Arts; in fact, Performing Dance Arts alumni have landed some of the most sought-after jobs in the industry. For instance, former Performing Dance Arts alumni Amanda Cleghorn was the only Canadian dancer to book Taylor Swift's 2013 RED Tour, for which 500 hopefuls auditioned and only seven female dancers were chosen. Cleghorn will also be joining Taylor Swift on stage on the 2014 leg of her RED Tour. People also might know Cleghorn from season three of So You Think You Can Dance Canada, where she placed in the top two.
