Brigitte Aucoin – Owner of Happy Soul Dance studios
Brigitte has been involved in the arts her whole life. She discovered dance 10 years ago and fell in love with the art form learning many styles but has really found her passion through Freestyle Latin and African dances. She started teaching dance 4 years ago and went on to open her own Salsa dance school, Free to Move 2 years ago. She has also been working for different arts organizations in the city since her move to Halifax 7 years ago. After having a hard time finding suitable space to teach her classes and hearing other teachers having the same problem in the city, she decided to take it upon herself to open Happy Soul Dance Studios to give independent dance teachers in the city a high quality professional space they can be proud to use to teach their classes.
