2019 Mentor Awards
At SHINE we value dance educators as mentors and key influences who play meaningful roles in the lives of our children. We provide teachers with opportunities for personal and professional development creating strong leaders for the next generation both in and out of the studio through our Mentor Awards. Each mentor is selected by the Shine Crew and director as examples of professionalism, dedication to their craft and leaders in their community. Each 2019 recipient received a scholarship to the Dance Teacher reTREAT in Vancouver.
