She holds Licentiate teaching qualifications with the Cecchetti Society of Canada and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing.

Residency project

Arlene and Johanne will be working on completing curriculum documents for the RWB School. Fundamental to the success of the school is the development of curriculum that clearly outlines the methods adapted by the RWB. This project incorporates work that has been in progress for the last eight years. When completed, the curriculum will represent the core of the RWB faculty’s work, creating a living tool for future teachers at the RWB.
