With over 20 years of experience as a professional dancer, dance educator, international adjudicator and choreographer, holding a BPE with a major in Dance, from the Universities of Alberta and Otago (New Zealand) Breanna Willis is thrilled to bring her love, passion, and dedication to dance into her new role as tour director of the Canadian Dance Awards.
Originally from Sherwood Park, Alberta, Breanna’s passion for dance and travel has led her to perform and choreograph in film, TV, and on stages across Canada and the world, including The Stratford Festival (Guthrie Award Recipient), Canadian Opera Company, Vancouver Opera, and Drayton Entertainment to name just a few. Her love of teaching and choreography began at a young age and in 1997, she began her teaching career. Over the past 23 years she has honed her skills as a dance educator, working with all ages and skill levels, and is committed to the development and growth of every performer with whom she works. She is an award winning choreographer both nationally and internationally, working with dancers from across Canada, the US, Germany, South Africa, Slovenia, Russia, Australia and New Zealand. She has travelled and danced her way to nearly 60 countries, and Breanna now calls Stratford, Ontario home. In 2018 she founded the Stratford Dance Collective, a drop in dance and training program for aspiring and professional dancers.
In 2003, Breanna began adjudicating dance festivals and competitions across Canada. In 2009 she obtained her license with The International Dance Organization, and currently represents Canada as a judge and choreographer for their events in Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, South Africa and Mexico. Her choreography has brought home 5 gold, 1 silver and 3 bronze medals in jazz, tap and streetdance show categories. In 2012, Breanna began working with ADA as judge at the Nationals in Florida, and since that time has judged regional, national and international events in South Africa for the company. Breanna is now branching out into the role of Tour Director of the Canadian Dance Awards and could not be more excited for this endeavour.
Fostering growth, and creating opportunities for dancers to realize their potential, to deepen their connection to their art, and strengthen the Canadian Dance community as a whole is what drives and motivates her. She values and cares deeply for everyone in the dance community, and hopes to inspire each and every dancer that takes the stage with CDA, creating positive experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
