Lisa Metz

Lisa comes from Calgary, with 11 years of training in Tap and 9 years of training in Jazz with successful completion of Intermediate 3 ADAPT exams on both disciplines; 7 years of Ballet training and successful completion of Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Advanced 1 Examination; 6 years of training in Lyrical and 4 years of training in Hip Hop and Street Jazz, as well as numerous workshops and performances including Project CPR, Sounds Bites, Inbox, Stonefoxx, Making Up, and Dance on Film to name a few.

Tessa Tamura

At the age of 4, Tessa started her dance training in Lethbridge, Alberta. She learned multiple styles of dance (jazz, contemporary, tap, hip hop, musical theatre and ballet) and practiced them for 13 years before moving to Vancouver to further her training. At only 22, Tessa has already danced with the Source Dance Company , the Lux Dance Company, worked for multiple artists, such as Marianas Trench and Nelly Furtado, as well as an appearance in the Nickelodeon film "Rags".

Moe Brody

After finishing her degree in Human Kinetics at UBC, Moe returned to dance with the NBA Grizzlies Extreme Dance Team and then choreographed the CFL’s BC Felions and UBC’s Dance Team. She just finished shooting a movie with Hayden Panetteire called I Love You Beth Cooper, due out soon. She choreographed for Ashanti and Brittany Snow in the movie John tucker Must Die and a dance sequence in Dr. Doolittle. She’s done commercials for McDonalds, Barbie, Kyocere, Coca-Cola and Disney. She is also on faculty with The Source, Danzemode, DanceFusion and Groovestreet Productions. As an adjudicator at dance competitions, she derives much satisfaction dispensing helpful advice which she hopes will inspire future dancers. Whether it’s tap, jazz or hip hop, her favorite place to be is in class, sharing a good story or two.

Julio Fuentes

Julio is no stranger to the performing arts and has been singing since the age of 4. Originally from the Philippines, he belongs to a family of performers and grew up exposed to show business, thanks to his parents.

Although dance came late in his life at the age of 19, Julio immediately fell in love with it and started training in ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary, and hiphop. He has had the privilege of performing, coaching, choreographing and adjudicating all over the USA, Canada, Europe, Guam, and the Philippines. His choreography has garnered him 1st place overall and many choreography awards in competitions across Canada and the United States. His credits include Fashion Rocks Canada, America’s Best Dance Crew Canadian Tour, Two From Galilee, adjudicating for the International Dance Challenge, Dance Olympus, Thunderstruck, Dance Manitoba and many others.

In recent years, Julio has really been motivated to inspire others to be storytellers, both as choreographers and as dancers, and seeks to help others dance beyond what they feel their bodies can do. Julio hopes to continue traveling with his work and be inspired through working with different artists and dancers.

Julio is currently the director and founder of The Aviary, a performance-based company which started in September 2014 and is based out of Harbour Dance Centre.

Watch for Julio in the upcoming production of In The Heights at Arts Club Theatre in the spring of 2015.
