Julia Leclerc

Julia began her dance journey at age 2 in her local dance studio in Whitby, Ontario and has been hooked ever since. She has studied various genres of dance such as tap, ballet, jazz, lyrical, hip hop, modern, acro, musical theatre, song and dance, and partnering. Upon getting more heavily involved in the tap dance community, she has had the opportunity to train and perform numerous times with Toronto Rhythm Initiative, the Tap Dance Centre, the Canadian National Tap Team, Rhythm & Sound Productions, and the Choreographer’s Ball downtown Toronto. One of her favourite experience was participating in the International Tap Dance Festival’s tap dance residency under the direction of Allison Toffan, Tanya Knights and Broadway choreographer, Ted Louis Levy, where she had the opportunity to work with and choregraph in the presence of the Toronto Jazz Orchestra.

She has trained with tap master, Heather Cornell, studying the techniques and choreography of historic tap dance pioneers that emphasize rhythm tap dancing and collaboration. More recently, Julia has become a choreographer for the Lightning Elite Performance Team choreographing shows for dancers across in North America to perform in Disneyland Parks. Julia teaches, choreographs, and adjudicates across Canada in all genres of dance with an emphasis on inclusive classrooms and accessible dance education. She is a graduate of Sheridan College’s Bachelor of Music Theatre Performance Program and Queen’s University’s Bachelor of Education program with a concentration in Artist in Community Education. Julia is so excited to work with the dancers at Rhythm Dance Centre and share her passion for tap dance!

Tianna Weatherdon

Tianna started dancing at three-years-old and joined the competitive team at five-years-old. She has trained in Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Acro, Hip-Hop, Lyrical, and Contemporary. Over the years, she has had the opportunity to learn from many choreographers from across Canada and the United States such as Blake McGrath, Danny Lawn, and Everett Smith. After graduating from high-school, she pursued a degree in Physical and Health Education at Queen’s University, where she continued to compete with Queen’s Competitive Dance Team. Tianna is currently obtaining a second bachelor’s degree (Psychology) and intends to obtain a Masters of Social Work after graduation. She has missed teaching and sharing her passion for dance since the pandemic and is excited to get back into it!

Jeremy Morganty

From Ottawa, Jeremy has had 11 years of competitive training in jazz, tap, contemporary, ballet and musical theatre. He is a graduate of the Music Theatre Performance Program at St. Lawrence College. Since graduating in 2015, Jeremy has choreographed, taught, and performed across Canada, Asia, and Europe. In 2017, Jeremy moved to Hong Kong where he lived and taught for 4 years. In his time at Red Shoe Dance, he created both tap and musical theatre programs, and he expanded the jazz program that already existed. In 2020, he sent in the first student in all of Asia to successfully complete her Advanced Jazz Exam – the highest level in the Adapt Syllabus. He has former students studying at elite musical theatre and dance programs such as the London Studio Centre and New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, and in professional and West End shows including Matilda and Annie. Jeremy moved to London in July 2021, where he taught for 2 years at a variety of schools in and around the city including the Royal Academy of Dance. He was instrumental in Adapt’s UK launch in 2023. Having recently moved back to Canada, Jeremy is excited about new opportunities in his career.
