Sheri Drewitz-Kanten

 

 

Originally from Saskatchewan, Sheri Drewitz-Kanten is an award winning dance teacher and choreographer who has been teaching all major dance disciplines for over 30 years throughout Western Canada. Known as an inspirational teacher, Sheri has helped create some of the most well-rounded and best technically trained dancers as recognized in several international competitions. Her talents and eye for detail make her a sought after adjudicator, choreographer, and faculty member for workshops and summer schools.

Sheri is a Registered Teacher with the Royal Academy of Dance and certified in Progressing Ballet Technique (PBTS), ADAPT, CDTA and is an Apprentice for TKM Release Therapeutic Ball and Myofascial Strength Techniques. She has successfully put thousands of students through Graded and Vocational RAD Ballet exams and the Solo Seal Award, is a Mentor for the RAD (CBTS), and was thrilled to be part of the RAD pilot project, Discovering Repertoire. In addition, she has prepared and entered students for tap and jazz exams with CDTA and ADAPT. Sheri received the Best Teacher Award at the World Ballet Art Competition Grand Prix, Toronto 2016 and then was honored to be appointed the Western Representative for the inaugural WBAC Grand Prix, Calgary 2016.

Sheri now enjoys freelancing throughout Canada: teaching, choreographing and providing customized dance workshops called Beyond Ballet. For the last 9 years, she has been directing her own summer dance intensive called To The Pointe. Sheri works very hard to prepare students to pursue professional dance careers and is very proud of her former students who have continued their passion for dance through many avenues including: the National Ballet School of Canada, Royal Winnipeg School of Ballet, Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal, AMDA, NYU, Savannah Ballet, Broadway productions, film, television, various cruise lines and as Registered Dance Teachers in all disciplines, to name a few. With the busy life she lives, Sheri happily resides in the Calgary area with her husband Ron and their three children.
