Marielle Lespérance is a 8-time World Champion, 9-time Commonwealth Champion, and 15-time Canadian Champion in highland dancing. She is passionate about highland dance, sharing this passion through competition, teaching and performance. She is a member and ambassador of the British Association of Teachers of Dance, is a Scottish Official Board of Highland Dancing adjudicator, and has lectured and taught dance workshops across Canada, the United States, Scotland, Ireland and South Africa. Marielle often teaches at the Gaelic College in Cape Breton, NS during their youth sessions, and was the highland dance instructor for 2 years at the College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts of Canada in Summerside, PEI. She now runs her own dance school in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, which she opened in September 2017. Marielle has performed internationally, both solo and with various productions and musicians, and continues to perform with the highland dance company Change of Step, of which she is a founding member.

Marielle owes her passion and success in dance to her instructor of 20 years, Ellen Cameron, and to Janice Macquarrie, with whom she trained while completing her Bachelor of Science in Physics at St. Francis Xavier University. Marielle also holds a Master’s of Science in Medical Physics from Carleton University.
