Melanie Jolicoeur

Melanie Jolicoeur is from Montreal; she was the owner of a successful dance school for ten years and trained as a professional dancer in Montreal, New York, and in Europe. She performed and taught dance internationally for many years. She then began yoga and now calls it her own remedy. Melanie studied to earn her yoga certification, and soon after became a certified Cize Live instructor. She is now creating a new way to teach yoga, a mix of dance and yoga that she calls Pranadance.

Last spring, Melanie met Marlene Vale, who believed in her right away and asked her to join the Castle team. Melanie then decided to move in Fernie to share her love for teaching with the community. Melanie will be teaching street dance, hip hop, lyrical dance, Burlesque, Pranadance, Cize and more for adults, kids and teenagers.
