With the thrill of athleticism and the exhilaration of the spotlight, Aleesha pursued dance at a very young age. Although she had spent the last 7 years residing in Toronto she has always continued to be a part of the dance community here in Saskatchewan. She has extensive training in many dance styles and has her diploma in Dance Performance studies from George Brown College. She has done commercial work for Much Music and MTV as well as live performances in various companies. These opportunities led her to perform for artists such as Francesco Yates, Shawn Desman, Jully Black, Alyssa Reid, Barenaked Ladies, Nicole Arbour, Divine Brown and Anjulie. Her passion has even taken her abroad with working for Royal Caribbean Cruise lines to perform worldwide. Her ambitious attitude and dedication to the art drives her to continue to develop within the dance community.
