Morgan Hazelwood started her dance journey at age 3, and began competing at age 8 with the No Limits Dance Company in Peterborough, ON.
She has danced and taught with some incredible studios, including Premiere Studio of Dance, A Frost Dance Experience, The Academy of Dance, Inside Out, and Maracle Center for the Arts. She began teaching at age 13.
Morgan joined the military in 2014, and shortly after she was relocated to Cold Lake AB. Where, yes, she found a studio and began teaching again. Pirouette School of Dance was her home for 5 years. Then, the military spoke again and she was relocated back to Trenton, ON.
Morgan looked into local studios but it didnt feel right this time. As hard as it is for a child to move around place to place, dance teachers bond with their students and it was becoming more and more difficult to imagine starting over another time at another studio. With 19 years teaching experience and almost 30 years dancing it was time she followed her heart and in 2019 Rebel Dance Company was born.
Morgan has been Acrobatic Arts qualified since 2012, has studied RAD ballet and BATD ballet, jazz, and tap. She completed her specialty aerial and backhandspring training, and completed her Acro Adjudicator Certification. Over the many years of dancing she has done and taught so many genres of dance including, ballet, jazz, tap, musical theatre, lyrical, modern, contemporary, hiphop, and of course acrobatics :) Morgan has been hired as a guest choreographer in Ontario and Alberta for various competitive routines.
She believes in smart dancers, teaching why something works or doesnt work and making sure they are body aware to encourage injury prevention. Her favourite part of being a teacher is being in the wings and knowing that the dancers onstage can count on her to be there, no matter what happens onstage that she will be there flight or fall.
All 3 of her children dance with Rebel Dance Company and her fiance Mat, has been so supportive throughout this busy time in their lives.
