Annemarie has been teaching dance for over 35 years. She began her training with JoAnne Chapman where she received her teacher’s qualifications and from there opened up her own studio Annemarie’s Dance Academy in Orangeville, Ontario. Ms. Reynolds has had much success with her students winning many titles and overalls throughout the past 29 years in business. Some of her students have gone on to dance in companies, on cruise lines, Raptors Dance pac, commercials, ‘The Next Step’ as well as teach and open up their own studios. She is very proud of her students and their accomplishments.
Ms. Reynolds was trained in many disciplines but now devotes her time to teaching tap, jazz, and musical theatre. Since selling her studio 2 years ago, she is able to teach for several studios and many workshops working with students from 5 years old to 70. Annemarie was a past member on the Canadian Tap Team that competed in Riesa Germany at the World Tap Dancing Championships as well as a choreographer for the Canadian Tap Team and frequently represents Canada on the judging panel at the Worlds for Tap, Showdance and Modern. Many of her students have been members on team Canada competing successfully at the world level in ballet, modern, jazz, showdance and tap.
When not teaching, Annemarie enjoys spending time with her family, reading, playing volleyball and watching hockey.
Ms. Reynolds adjudicates throughout Canada and enjoys watching the dancers come alive on stage. She loves to be entertained and would like to wish all the dancers the best of luck this weekend.
