In the beginning she studied Jazz, tap and Ballet and then moved on to a more specialized dance form.

Sheri also contributes dance performances to many local charity fund-raisers and festivals. She has successfully competed at a professional level in many areas of North America.


Let me introduce myself. My name is Yvonne.

I am very excited to be working at Danceline Studios because the enthusiasm held by instructors and dancers alike parallel my own passion for dance.

I have been active since a very young age, centering my extra-curricular activities on gymnastics and Jazz dancing (which I had studied in and around Hamilton) Later I had an opportunity to teach Jazz dancing for Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club. Today, since I have expanded my dance interests to include Jive, Ballroom and Latin (to name a few) I have taken every opportunity to dance at social functions.

At Danceline Studios I am enjoying my new, fun challenges and my new friends.
