Simon Beckett


Choreographer and performer Simon Beckett entered the dance world at 14 in Barrie, Ontario. He built a solid foundation in ballet, jazz, lyrical, and contemporary before taking to the stage. At 17, he began dancing competitively where he was quickly recognized as an outstanding performer with a captivating stage presence.

At 18, he moved to Ottawa in order to study Aviation at Algonquin College. This move also created an opportunity  to further hone and sharpen his dance skills. Since his arrival, he’s become a quintessential performer with the dance crew “Pulse N’ Limited”, an urban style troupe. Adding to his diverse repertoire, Simon has since specialized in the funk style of popping under the alias “SoulPilot”, with a recent interest in Locking.


Given his background and experience within the dance scene and community, he brings a unique style in creating high energy and entertaining choreography. One of his main aspirations is to humbly educate the next generation of dancers with the history, knowledge, and experience he has acquired thus far.



Amber Green

Amber Green first started exploring movement through figure skating where she trained and competed for 16 years. Her technical dance training began in 2006 at The School of Toronto Dance Theatre and the National Ballet School. Since graduating from the 3 year Professional Contemporary Dance Training program at The School of Dance in 2015 Amber has performed with several professional companies in Ottawa, such as Shannon Cooney and Keaja D’dance at Canadian Dance Festival, Amelia Griffin in TACTICS and presented her own choreography at Dark Horse Dance Projects 2016. 

Amber has learned that dance can be a powerful tool for expression and healing. An underlying theme in her dance philosophy is safety by analyzing how a particular movement works.  She hopes to prolong optimal range of motion in children and adults by continuing to learn healthier ways to move the body. As the contemporary technique trainer at the Gloucester Skating Club Amber combines her knowledge of dance and figure skating in order to develop a dance syllabus for each level of the StarSkate program. Amber is a certified Therapeutic Yoga Teacher.
Not only is Amber a movement professional, she is a lot of fun! Her contemporary choreography always inspires students of all ages to express themselves in a creatively new way.
