ANN-MARIE WILLIAMS - Teacher/Movement Lab Owner
What Parents Are Saying...
Here are some of the comments we received from our online (anonymous) customer service survey:
"Ann-Marie is amazing and patient, I don't know how you do it...so just keep doing more of the same!"
"Ann-Marie, you truly are a wonderful teacher and have an amazing connection with kids. Being a dancer myself and knowing the industry to a good extent, I absolutely adore your approach to the parent-tot classes, with enough play but also enough concentration on building proper technique in early years of the little dancers! I haven't seen dance teachers in Toronto area (yet) who can keep kids attention and focus to the degree that she can! Thank you for that!"
"Great job, we're thrilled with the movement lab!"
"I really like how calm Ann Marie is. My daughter adores her. Ann Marie really knows what is age appropriate for the toddlers and that is helping us enjoy the class. My daughter takes great pride in showing her relatives her steps."

Nicola began dancing at the age of 3, and from that moment on, knew that dance would always be a huge part of her life. Alongside performing, Nicola has enjoyed teaching dance to a diverse group of students over the years, particularly those who would normally feel hesitant or uncomfortable in joining a mainstream recreational program. Aside from dancing, Nicola is passionate about education and received her Honors BA in Psychology from Western University, and is currently completing her Masters in Social Justice in Education through the Masters of Professional Education stream at Western's Althouse College. Nicola is also certified in Reiki and Child Mindfulness and Meditation. It is her hope to bring Mindfulness into the classroom--whether it be the school classroom or the dance studio--as a means to offer her students strategies and practices to incorporate into their everyday lives.
