Chemistry Youth Ambassadors
Hey, I'm Andrea! A passionate young artist from Ontario, Canada.A French Immersion student with a background in competitive dance, acting and modelling. I fell in love with dance from my first ballet class at the young age of 3 and my passion for the art of movement only grew stronger with each class and each performance throughout the years.As a competitively trained dancer with experience in a variety of genres, from competitions on regional, national and international stages to local indoor and outdoor performances, my goal remains the same, to help bring the story to life and please the audience through artistic movement and expression.
I’m Rylie and I’m a competitive dancer and model from Vancouver Island British Columbia.
I’ve been dancing since I was 4 and competing since I was 5.
I’m very excited to be starting my third term as a Chemistry Youth Ambassador 🔥I’ve won numerous awards over the years but last year brought the biggest accomplishments, with one of my solos being invited to dance at Dance World Cup, and I also had the most amazing opportunity to dance in California in July as part of the Disney Elite performance team ✨
I’ve got 12 competitive dances this season, including 3 solos, a duet, a trio, a quad and 6 group pieces. I train in ballet, pointe, acro, Broadway jazz, commercial jazz, contemporary, lyrical, and hip hop and I’m competing all styles except pointe and acro this year. I’m also very honoured to have been asked to help teach 3 hip hop classes at my studio this season🔥
Hey Everyone! My name is Laura Brunelle, I am 16 years old and train out of Midland, Ontario at the Dancers’ Studio.I am super excited to join the CYA! I cannot wait to share my passion for dance with all of you!
Danika is an actor, singer and dancer since the age of 6, competing in all styles of dance.Her theatre performances include: Annie, SpongeBob, Matilda, Urinetown and many more. She is currently training at Titanium arts lab for dance and Moving arts for theatre and singing.
Hi, I’m Ava Gravelle.
I’m 13 years old and in grade 8. I have been a competitive dancer at Georgian Bay School of Dance for 8 years. I compete in ballet, tap, jazz, modern, lyrical, hip hop and musical theatre. I also do pointe. My 2 favourite styles are musical theatre and tap.
I was recently part of Drayton’s Wizard of Oz The Panto and absolutely loved it! I’d really like to pursue theatre/acting and can’t wait to audition for future roles! I am a positive, happy and outgoing person who loves new adventures.Apart from dancing, I enjoy swimming, boating, reading and hanging with my friends. My family is very important to me and are my biggest supporters. I love being a Chemistry Youth Ambassador and can’t wait to meet the newest members!
I'm Indiana, 15 years old and have been dancing since I was 2 years old. I love all genres of dance but lyrical and contemporary are my favourites. Dancing to me let’s me be creative and free to express myself. I love to share my journey and perform at competitions in S.A Australia. I would love to one day travel to perform at chemistry Dance competition. I currently train at Gaynor School of Dancing and intune pilates.Thank you for this opportunity to be an ambassador 🖤
My name is Kaitlyn Lau and I am 11 years old and live in Oakville, Ontario, with my family. I have been dancing for 10 years and have fallen in love with acrobatics. I train at Studio X six days a weeks in various styles of dance, such as ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, lyrical, acro and contemporary. I also train at CTRL Acrobatics 2/3 times a week where I focus on my acrobatics skills. I love to dance because it allows me to express myself. The big stage is truly a magical place for me. When I grow up I would like to be a famous dancer and choreographer; and I would also love to perform with Cirque du Soleil.I am so honoured and excited to have been selected as a Chemistry Youth Ambassador
Hello, my name is Melissa Boodram! I am 15 years old and in grade 10.
I dance at Axis Dance Studio in Ontario, Canada. I started dancing when I was 4 years old but I joined the competitive team when I was 7.
My favourite style to dance is both Jazz and Contemporary.In my free time I love playing the piano, reading, hanging out with my friends, and I also love traveling with my family.
I'm Asha and since I was 3, I've known what I wanted to be. Dance allows me to express emotions and focus my thoughts in a way words can't. I grew up training solely in ballet, focusing on technique and training. At age10, I added in other styles such hip hop, jazz and lyrical. Then at age 13 I made a drastic decision to transition into the competitive dance world and join Rebel Dance Co. And, I haven't looked back!I've had so many opportunities since I became a Rebel including modeling, ambassador work and so many training experiences. I adore all things Dance and look forward to pursuing and pushing myself further as an artist and performer.
I've been dancing since the age of 3 & I'm currently training with Prompt Dance Academy, Dance with Maryssa and Devonte Black of DB Collective amongst others. I train in any style of dance I can get my hands on, but focus hard on Acro & Jazz. I am finding great success in putting myself out there to experience as many choreographers and opportunities as I can to become a well rounded dancer. I spent fall and winter of 2022 touring with Ballet Jorgens.I also enjoy circus such as aerial silks and the lyra. When I am not dancing I am running my own business that gives back to local charities and hanging out with all my animals.
My name is Addison Yamazaki and I'm 15 years old. I have been dancing since I was 3 years old and am training with Capital City Dance in Ottawa, Canada.I'm so grateful for years of fun with Chemistry so far and am so excited to be continuing as a Chemistry Youth Ambassador!!
