Lesley Wyles

Lesley has had the opportunity to have studied various forms of dance and has been trained by many well known choreographers throughout Canada and the United States. Lesley started her professional career dancing with the Toronto Raptors Dance Pak, followed by Toronto’s professional Lacrosse team, The Toronto Rock. She then had the chance to share her passion of dance and perform two contracts aboard the prestigious Celebrity Cruiselines.

Lesley grew up training with the Royal Academy of Dance, and is now a fully qualified teacher in the ADAPT syllabus. Her specialties include Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Acro, Hip Hop and Musical Theatre. Her recent work has won many accolades including two Diamond Choreography Awards at American Dance Awards, 12 and younger judges choice at Candance, and her most promising was to watch her students win the Junior Diamond dance off at Candance.

Lesley is thrilled to start the season with her new dance studio Prestige Dance Company. Her love, passion, and commitment to the children's dance education is eternal. Her main objective is to inspire the dancers, and instill a love for dance within them. Together with her talented faculty she is ecstatic for what Prestige Dance Company has to offer each and every dancer.
