She began teaching at Turning Pointe Dance Studio six years ago and has thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this dance family. The students, fellow teachers, and parents are absolutely wonderful. She would like to thank you all for being so supportive and for making her time at Turning Pointe Dance Studio ultra special. Most recently, Miss Kandis has received certification in the Acrobatic Arts Pre-Primary levels through to level 10.
She would also like to thank her amazing husband Dustin for all of his support and compassion and for being so understanding during the busy times of the year while she is continually pursuing her passion!
