Jillian's enthusiastic, musical and detailed approach has developed through her culmination of studies at the Teacher Training Program at Canada's National Ballet School, and at the School of Toronto Dance Theatre.

Through her studies at NBS she gained teaching qualifications for the Royal Academy of Dance, the I.S.T.D National Dance faculty and the Cecchetti Society of Canada. After graduating with Distinction, she continued her studies at The School of Toronto Dance Theatre where she trained in contemporary dance.

She now looks forward to a career balanced between instructing and dancing professionally as she embarks on exciting work with choreographers such as Christopher House, Danny Grossman and Sharon Moore.
