Trista Blain, a graduate of Just for Kicks, studied dance at the University of Calgary’s Bachelors of Arts program. She is highly trained in Jazz, tap, lyrical, modern and contemporary and has an extra talent for Ballet. In 2009, after only 3 years training in ballet, not only did she take her first major ballet exam, passing with High Merit, Trista was chosen to represent the Okanagan and Ballet community at the B.C. provincials as a Ballet Rep.
Realizing that ballet and teaching are a passion of hers, she has been mentored under Mrs. Sonja Barton Woods to complete her Certificate of Instruction through the Royal Academy of Dance program. She has since taken over our ballet program where she trains, enters dancers for exams and competitions and has been very successful. She has become invaluable to our studio and students.
