Emily Bergen

Miss Emily has been inspired to dance in numerous ways throughout her life. Her early days in the Intensive Training Program at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet gave her strong foundations in ballet, jazz, lyrical, and modern and led her to pursue a degree in dance at Brigham Young University where she focused on contemporary dance. Since her graduation in 2017, she has been teaching at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. In June she made the move to Edmonton and is excited to see where this new adventure will take her!

Erin Head

Erin Head

Erin is no stranger to the local dance scene or Dancefusion. She was a student when the doors first opened 20 years ago.  Growing up in Sherwood Park, Erin started dancing at the young age of 3 with her first little tap class. It was clear that she had a true passion for the sport and went on to train in ballet, jazz, lyrical, musical theater, modern and more. As an adult, Erin has continued  her love of dance. Taking classes, dancing with two performance troupes and as a member of a Professional Sports Dance Team to name a few.  In addition to dancing herself, she has taught numerous dance and fitness classes to children and adults in and around Edmonton.

Erin has always loved working with young children and worked in childcare for years before getting her diploma in Personal Fitness Training. Erin believes that with her background in not only dance but in fitness as well, years spent working with and now raising two preschoolers, she will make a positive impact with the tiny dancers in their first years.
