Graduates of the Linda Jamieson School of Dance


Joanna Douglas

CBC credits include “Being Erica”, “Flash Point”, “Rookie Blue”
Joanna began as a Highland Dancer at the Linda Jamieson School of Dance, but soon added Ballet, Jazz, Tap and Musical Theatre Dance. Before graduation in 2001, Joanna had danced lead roles in South Pacific at Earl of March Secondary School, as well as Sugar Plum Fairy and Snow Queen in our Christmas Classical Ballet Production, “The Nutcracker”.

“Dancing at the Linda Jamieson School of Dance for 12 of my formative years gave me memories and skills to last a lifetime. I am so grateful to my parents for introducing me to dance and to Mrs. J. Who fostered my love for it, made it fun and encouraged me to branch out into dance of all forms.
My experience at Linda Jamieson's School not only enriched my life, but I believe it helped save me from the tribulations of my adolescent years. Aside from the personal skills I developed at the School, such as punctuality, self discipline, determination, persistence, and the ability to speak the language of performance art, I also learned the value of physical activity and that exercise can be creative and fun. It was Mrs. J. who helped encourage the family-like friendships I made at the school. There was never any shortage of support for one another or encouragement to keep improving. The school was also where I learned to really listen to music and appreciate the live musicians who played for us in classes and exams.
Moving on after high school in the pursuit of acting at the University of Toronto and Sheridan College was no doubt upheld by the knowledge and practical wisdom gained from dancing with Mrs. J. It was at her dance school after all where I was first exposed to the elements of design and the various departments of production. Now, 5 years into this first career of my choice, I am ever more grateful for all that I learned at the Linda Jamieson School of Dance.”

I wanted to thank you very much for the wonderful experience my daughter has had this year. She has grown so much due to dance! We watched her performance DVD from her previous dance school last year and the difference incredible!
