MALEEKA BEAULIEU INSTRUCTOR
Hello, I am Miss Maleeka (Mal) and I am so excited to be joining the Dance Elements family this year. Dance has been my greatest love ever since I can remember and it brings me all the joy in the world to share my passion through teaching. I enjoy working with young people because first of all, I consider myself to be a bit of a kid at heart but also I find their inhibition less attitude towards life so inspiring. I believe there is so much to learn from kids. I believe that while dance is something that takes great discipline and hard work, it is also about the love. I think joy and passion are equally as important as technique and ability, especially in young children. I value having a constructive approach to my classes and building strong, trusting relationships with my students. I am a huge advocate for mental health amongst young people and I believe a positive and constructive teaching style can make the world of difference.
My favourite dance styles are Lyrical and Ballet but when I’m not in the studio you can find me taking care of my vast plant collection or studying for my classes at USASK. I also train with two semi - professional dance companies in Saskatoon. I can be shy and quiet but I love letting loose in dance class, especially when I hit the stage, performing is my favourite part of dance and I am always trying to foster that same love and creative freedom within my own students.
I absolutely cannot wait for this year has to bring and I am so excited to be adding on classes with Dance Elements for this season.
