After having performed as principal dancers on many stages across the globe, we created the Hattori/Williamson School of Ballet with the mission of establishing a new standard of dance instruction in Western Canada for all aspiring dancers. We believe the students of tomorrow deserve guidance from industry professionals that know what is needed to succeed in dance, and the insight and support needed to navigate life as a professional dancer.
