Caulfield School of Dance instructors are lead by School Artistic Director, Cori Caulfield, who studied dance pedagogy in Directed Studies with Professors Grant Strate (Order of Canada recipient; National Ballet of Canada), Ruth Emerson (Judson Dance Group), and Judith Garay (Martha Graham Dance Company) at Simon Fraser University. Her degree studies included Kinesiology and Nutrition and she is constantly upgrading her knowledge is these fields and in childhood development.
