Absolutely insane old lady. I can't believe Haig still hires her because this woman is like 80 and can't demonstrate anything because her knee "hurts". Chooses favourites, if you are not someone she likes, good luck getting a decent mark. A weird person in general. Funny in the way that everyone just laughs at her. If you have the choice not to, absolutely don't take this useless course taught by a crazy old lady.

She is too judgemental at times. Her dance moves can be good, but weird too.

Umm, she's incredibly judgey, picks favourites all the time, has insane mood swings. I'd taken gr 9 dance with her and the only reason she liked me was because I wrote a paragraph of total bullsh*t for each class' "entry" that was supposed to be reflecting what we'd learned in class that day. That was 2 years ago, I still remember her superficial temperament. Hate her, though she loved me.

Knowledge in actual dance is lacking considering, but she's very easy if she likes you. Never talk in class, though, and write a lot. If you are an intense, knowledgable, proffesional, passionate dancer, do not take her class.

If you a very technical dancer you wontenjoy her class as she has a tedancey to make things up on the spot. her ability to communicate using dance terms is lacking a little and her choreography can be beyond embarrassing. I'm not extreamly fond of her class personally, but you really cant help but admire the energy she brings to class each day as well as her enthusiamsim for what she does. She has her ups and downs but always means well, and is incredibly nice at heart.

She's funny, but unintentionally. She's crazy in an artistic kind-of-way. Her marking is unfair, if you get perfect in all assignments it's still really difficult to get higher than a 90%. If you want a decent mark in her class just be nice to her, and don't talk in class. In written assignments, if it doesn't make any sense, she will still give you a good mark, just write a lot.

Completely insane. Changes requirements at the last minute, always forces students to teach for her, and CAN NOT demonstrate anything. Assignments are horrid, but luckily she marks easy.

She's bizarre, but really loves dancing. I didn't notice much favouritsm, but I did notice the ones she didn't like. Her dances though are so bizarre and I personally didn't like them. She brings in good guest teachers though and she is a very nice person.
