Thank you to Mother and Dad----Without your cooperation this Site, and your talented children's memories, in dance, would not be possible! 

It was your Moms and Dads, THAT MADE IT POSSIBLE, FOR US TO "DANCE ALWAYS" and 


The first entry on this page should go to your parents, who so willingly gave you so much of their time, in driving to lessons, competitions, interschool, exams, recital and all the rehearsals that made us all look so good.  Not only did they give of their time, but they financed the cost of all the expenses that parents endure, when enrolling their children in DANCE!!

The Comments in Italics are Mr. C's thoughts about the dancers.

Lisa Martin-Fried...is on facebook...I work full time with the Alberta Blue Cross and have for the last 23 years.  My husband, Robert and I, and two sons dance with a Bavarian Schuhplattlers  of Edmonton..We tour Canada and the USA and I also have continued to teach through the German Club we belong to.  I have a 17 yer old who is graduating and going to the U of A. next year taking medicine.  My youngest son age 14 is...and You guessed it a dancer.  He is talented if I do say so myself and takes tap, Jazz, Contemporary, Musical Theatre, Ballet but his favourite is Hip Hop.  We are going 6 days a week in his studio and I feel like I live there.  Reid dances at "Variations Academy of Performing Arts with Jolie Van and Helen Esik.  He also attends a performing arts school and takes dance as part of his studies.  I will also mention that I am on my 4th year of Hip Hop...and this past month competed in a hip hop festival.  ONE THING I HAVE LEARNED IS THAT IF YOU TRULY LOVE TO DANCE YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD!-- I think of the good times dancing in Calgary Often. (Lisa always had a great smile and by the pictures on her facebook and the Alumni page of this site still does.  I'm sure her son will carry on Lisa's tradition of having a Kean "Dance Spirit".  She was a great asset to the Calgary Rockette Group we had organized and always gave her performances  an irresistible charm--and a cause to Celebrate her secure and supercilious talent)!

Kyla Wilde:  is on facebook..My old bones are still kicking.  I am a Company Performance Manager with Princess Cruises.  I dance in the shows and also do the company manager stuff.  There are several pictures on my facebook account from the shows I've done.  I have worked with many choreographers that do West End and Broadway Stuff. (Who doesn't remember Kyla and her talent--Kyla was a student before she joined the Academy Staff and was as good at choreography as she was a dancers! Her Ability was very creative and musical--she had a lot of superior and tasteful twists to her unique style)!

Kellie McQuiggin: is on facebook..Kellie has two daughters, Paige 12 years old and Shea 5 years.  (Kellie was a Calgary Rockette with a wonderful "Dance Persona".  Her execution of her routines, always a credit to the school and her genuine personality was always evident).

Dianne Ranshaw Richards:   Dianne and her husband David have now been married for 25 years...After leaving the Dance Academy she went to the U of A. and graduated with a B. Of Sc. in Occupational Therapy and now has her own private practise dealing with Special Needs Children.  Her and David have two children...Matthew who is attending Vancouver Film School and Katie who carries on the Dance Tradition and is doing her Advanced RAD at the International School of Ballet. So YES Dianne is now a Busy DANCE MOM!. (Dianne had a great personality that she was able to transcend into her dancing.  She too, like so many had a genuine and inspiring "Dance Spirit").Typed December of 2010.

Carol Nielsen:  see "In Memory of"..Carol was  one of my first students, and always showed a lot of charm in her performances.  She started with me at Westgate Community always aiming  to please , Ballet was her first love but she was good at many genres of Dance.  A good mind for detail and technique. A wonderful addition to the Academy Staff and a loss far too soon!

Shanda Comben Aalbers:  is on facebook.."You have no idea how often I think of you and how much you taught me over the years.  I really try to pass the loving care on to my students the way  you did to to me. Thank you again for everything"! ..Shanda, one of my first students,  was an excellent dancer and had a  lot of the "Showbiz" qualities....She moved on to teach and had a great eye for building  quality numbers.  Shanda had the vision to perfect her craft as a dancer and teacher! Now Teaching in Sylvan Lake. but was a real bonus to the Academy Staff and respected by us all.

Debbie Black:  Debbie, one of my first students, was very good at adding the "Stimulating Factor" to Dance.  She not only could perform but from an early age was able to take control of a class and spot technique flaws in other dancers.   Ms. Black has been a special friend to all of us,  and someone who in all our minds represents DANCE! Debbie was an excellent Addition to the Academy Staff. Now Teaching at Premiere Dance Academy.

Jane Southwood Lizotte:  Jane has viewed the website and thanks for the memories and for bringing those memories back to us on the website.  My Many years (21) of dance, although distant in years, are certainly not distant in my memory.  I think back on them often with fondness. Do you remember how you threw your DRUM STICKS at feet that were on the wrong foot and sending dancers out into the hall to practice steps? I now teach in a high school and use dance in my musical productions as I teach Drama and English.  (I remember Jane and how she was able to bring her personality into dance and her very clean technical approach to her own "Spirit Of Dance".  She was a pleasure to teach and have as a receptionist at the South School on Friday Evening and Saturday.

Diana Broderick: is on facebook.. I was a student at the academy from 1975 to 1983.  I unfortunately had to move away and missed out on the teen years with the School. I just wanted to let you know those times dancing were some of my best memories of growing up. I still have every ribbon, medal and trophy I ever received.  The ADE Festivals in Edmonton were...priceless.  Thanks for the memories. (Thank you Diana for the memories you gave us--we are glad you found the Academy had memorable moments for you)!

Sean Cheesman: is on facebook.. OK everybody, this man is my first dance teacher and I owe him so much...I bow down to the legend that is Mr. Cozzubbo. ( I remember Sean as a student and how good he was ....the girls used to scream when he hit the stage at the festivals...Sean was like a sponge absorbing DANCE INFO--He's an excellent representative for Male DANSEURS--We now see Sean as a choreographer and judge on "So You Think You Can DANCE" ---a further bit of trivia was that Sean's dad Winston drove Me to the hospital...from the North Haven Studio...I had terrible pain in my side and I kept sending Calla Comben Shaw for milk...I was trying to get through the day of teaching...and on a Saturday...Anyway it was a Kidney Stone ...and I remember saying to Mr. Cheesman, if you don't get me there soon ...just let me out and I'll pass out on the Grass..Probably a more graphic statement was actually said.!

Lisa Horvath Svecla: is on facebook..  I love you lots, and thanks for always being an inspiration and teaching me all that you did..you have formed my career and I really do love you for that! ( Lisa was sooooo good at her work in dance, ...aren't her students lucky to have her pass on her gift!!..

(I too remember her on stage, ...I didn't teach her but she sure could perform.)

Patti Westin (See "In Memory Of")... now Trish DeCoverley:  is on facebook.. Patti wrote a lot of wonderful memories and comments and it was very warm feelings reading them..this is her later comments......I could go on and on and on with amazing memories of my life as a dancer with Allan Cozzubbo.  He wasn't just my teacher: He was more like an uncle who was also one of my best friends and mentor.. I remember talking and dancing with Carol Koldinsky, Dawn Marie Fox, Sean Cheesman, Shelley Gillette--(And flirting with her brother Troy, once a year at every Inter-School Competition.) Kari Ikeda , the Twins (Johnson..Denise and Diane I think she means these twins) Leanne Smith, Lisa Horvath, Cindy Dotzler, Kelly McQuiggen, Dawn and JP Ewonus, Michele Palmer, Lori Jensen, Brenda, Rachel and Cheryl Flewelling and Lisa Allyson, Sharon Edwards, Jody Aasen, The Smandych's Cindy Greasley and many many etc...I was fascinated with Karen Zimmerman and Brian Craik.  I was so proud when he once asked me to teach him some tap step.  You would have to ask him, but I think I was about 6 years and him 18 or so.  BECAUSE OF You  all of our talents were Maximized,  You Are WELL loved.....thanks Patti...you wrote a beautiful keepsake for me... (Patti was like a modern day "Shirley Temple"...she could WOW the audience!! As Patti had the ability to challenge herself she was able to dance far beyond her years at a very young age!!)) now owner/director of Divine Dance Academy in Olds and she was a popular teacher on the Academy Staff..

   Lisa and I talk about our Cozzubbo training and share our memories at the time.  I was so fortunate to have been so well trained by you, Mrt. C. and all the wonderful teachers that you had.  It forever changed my life and I am so grateful that you "Discoved" me as a teen jazz dancer with an absolute passion for the art. which I still have to this day.  Hard to believe sometimes that I started tap at age 17 and not only is it my favorite disciplene, but it is one of the disciplines that I am known for as a teacher and choreographer.  What luck to have taken that up!!.(Trudy was a pleasure to have as a student and a real bonus to have her on staff.  WE all have great memories of her ...and thanks to her Mom, Ellen for the work on costumes!) now teaching in Camrose School of Dance.

Bethia Jolly -Steele:  is on facebook..Wow, great site. Brings back some great memories.  I think I said recently ACAD is like Calgary's version of Kevin Bacon's six degrees of separation.  I think all the studio owners here in Calgary are connected to you in some way.  I started dancing with you , and I will always remember Miss Nielson, my favorite Ballet Teacher.  What wonderful character ballet solos we did together.  I also remember The Wixard of Oz production.  I was Kim Hall's LIME GREEN TOTO.  I may not have finished my training with you, but have always had fond memories of my time with you and the whole ACAD studio.  I am just about to wrap up my 6th year of my own studio, so I am still loving dance as much as I did then. ( Bethia was a wonderful talent and had an eye for clean technique.  Like Bethia, we all remember the great Character Solos she did with Miss Nielsen!)

Cindy Anderson-Tymko: is on facebook..who knew at age 4 that dance would end up being my career for life.  I was just too young for Kindergarden so Mom thought she would send me to ballet for $5.00 per month and then the next year we skipped kindergarden and added Jazz and Tap for another $10.00 a month.  It was outrageous back then to spend that on one child with 5 more siblings who didn't get to take anything.  Seven yearss later I ended up dancing with the very best studio in Calgary "Allan Cozzubbo Academy of Dancing " Wher we had attended all the year end shows in the years previous and I had envied the girls and one boy in the "Big " productions and wanted so badly to be part of them.  My favorite memories of dance from those days are giggling with Shirley Nielsen and the rest of the girlfriends between class breaks and how inspiring and patient Miss Debbie Black was in my private lessons. 

I now teach Country, Swing and Ballroom Couples and have my own Dance Company "Thythms of Dance" with my husband Richard.  We are certified judges on the UCWDC circuit and travel frequently to the US for dance competitions to both judge and compete with our students.  We have a little three year old girl "Izzie" who already loves to dance and I can hardly wait to get her into classes and competitions.  She already two-steps with her daddy and is taking her first ballet class this week. (August 2010 )(Cindy was a perfectionist and always put her best foot forward.  She had good highs and lows in her performances with a finely tuned Technique.  I'm sure she'd be good teaching adults as I remember her as a patient and inspiring dancer).

Tara Young: is on facebook  "I have been working on Broadway for over 20 years and not a month will go by without someone asking me where I atarted.  Mr Cozzubbo absolutely gave me the foundation, discipline, and tools to set me on my way, to make it on Broadway.  I am thankful fo the environment that he created in his studio.  It was my home away form home...I will forever be grateful to him!!" !!

Miss Nielsen convinced me to do my first ballet solo and she shoreographed such a wonderful character pliece that I received a scholarship in  Esmonton.  She was truly an inspiring teacher and has a special place in my heart.  Dance did not come naturally to me and I had to work very hard for every achievement.--I loved how at the Academy every student was valued and I received such fantastic instruction and individual attention.  Together Mrs Abra and Miss Nielsen helped me pass my Elementary Ballet exam, and encouraged me to attend Summer School at the Roay Winnigpeg, which led me to the opportunity to participate in the Nucracker with the Alberta Ballet.(I remember Lisa and her personality. Always a smile on her face and ever so willing to get it RIGHT--Her work in the art of Dance certainly was an asset enjoyed by many!)

Leslae Ewonus: (this excerpt is from her parents Merle and Greg--Jan 2010) Leslae and her husband Tony live in Missoula Montana where Les has a very successful Law Practise.  They have two children, Merle and Greg's very special grandchildren.  Miranda is 22 years and about to graduate from University and she tells that she is going on to Grad School and then law.  She has a wonderful boyfriend so this may factor in. (She did dancing as a wee one than progressed to sports. especailly tennis and was State Chamipin in high shcool.  Leslae's son John is an excellent student and superb athelete.  (Leslae was an excellent dancer and was motivated to excel in her craft.  She could take the stage and be very determined to give a sizzling performance with a unique style that she developed---Leslae and Rachel Hershfield did some great duets and they each pulled their weight).

Dawn Ewonus:  (this is from her parents Mr. and Mrs. G. Ewonus--January 2011)  Dawn and her husband live in Calgary, about a block away from Merle and Greg which they just love.  They at this time have no children just some very dear pets. ( Dawn worked very hard at her dancing and was able to turn in top quality demonstrations each time she danced.  Dawn and Sean Cheesman were duet partners at the Academy and Dawn certainly held up her end of the choreography.  Dawn was a bundle of energy which added a "PLUS" to her routines).

J.P. (Jake)Ewonus:  (This data is from his parents Merle and Greg Ewonus January 2011). J.P. and his partner Linda live close to us and we all get together as often as possible as they are very busy in the business world.  At this time they have no children but do have special pets. (J.P. certainly was an excellent danseur giving some excellent thought to his routines.  He not only had energy but he also had a strong masculine style that only added to the excitement of viewing his dances--I, at this time cannot remember J.P. doing any duets???).  Merle Ewonus, like many of the mothers, could always be counted on to make great costumes and had an eye for colour and detail.

Suzana Dimitrijevic-Dawe..is now teaching at Henry Wise Wood School in Caglary, Alberta.  Suzana received her Bachelor of Education at the Universtiy of Lethbridge.

Karen Bradfield Humphrey ..(now operates "Dance Inspirations Inc" in Vulcan Alberta.  Her, and her sister Cheryl Flewelling, did some memorable duet routines.  Karen had a good "Dance Spirit" and had a unique style).

Maureen Hart:  is on facebook. (Maureen studied with us when they moved from the west coast to Calgary prior to her mom opening her school, "Hart School of Dancing".  She was a bundle of energy and had a unique style.  Her and her sister, Susan, did very clean and technical duets.  They continued the school when their mother, Gloria passes away in 1975.  There brother Michael came up through the ranks of the "Hart School").

Susan Hart: is on facebook. (Susan studied with us when her family moved to Calgary from the West coast, prior to  the family opening the "Hart School of Dancing".   Her and her sister Maureen took over the studio when their mother, Gloria passed away in March of 1975.  Susan was a joy to watch and was a clean technician with her performances--we all enjoyed seeing Michael come up through their ranks and carry on his Mom's and sister's talent).

Tara Rockey Fawcett: is on facebook.  Tara's comments are on the "Testimonial" and "Alumni" navigation pages.  (Tara was quite a talent and we remember her performances well.  She had a generous "Dance Spirit" and a gift to dance with zest and vigor.  Her Mom gave her and the school a lot of support).

Audra Cox:  Audra has contacted me and brought us up to date on her Academic career (August 2011)" I went to Mount Royal College and took my Law Enforcement Diploma plus a B.A.  in Criminology from SFU and finally her Masters from the University of Leicester in Criminal Justice Studies.  I then went back and took my Land Administration certifcate from SAIT". (Audra had the smarts as we can see not only in her career she pursuded, but in DANCE.  She certainly had a technical approach to her craft and always performed with an awesome ability that placed 2nd to none--She obviously learned "Time Management"  from her time in Dance and related Subjects.  Audra also was a "Young Canadian" with the Calgary Stampede but came back because she enjoyed dancing at the studio.  She had been accepted by the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and  also mastered figure skating and track and field.).

Pamela Wood Drummond is on facebook.  Pamela went back to school in 2001 and is now a legal assistand. She works in a small litigation boutique firm in downtown Toronton.  She married in 1984 to her husband Dave and have now been married for almost 18 years.  She has a daughter Nicole who stayed in Calgary to finish a double deghree program at the U Of C.  She moved to Ontario after graduating and is now living in Thunder Bay and working to complete yet another degree in nursing. ( Pamela had an excellent style and devloped a very clean technique.  She danced with the Calgary Rockettes and certainly deserved the applause for her awesome ability to perform--Pamela had the "IT FACTOR"). 

Dana (Harvery) Leslie is on facebook.  Dana left the Academy in 1986 and went on to dance with an adagio/dance cast for Jean Ann Ryan Productions and loved many years of dancing aboard cruise ships for the Cunard and Norwgian Cruise Lines.  From time to time, in between cruise contracts, spent time performing for Stage West both in Calgary and Edmonton. Today, is partially retired from the entertainment world and resides between Kelowna BC and Phoenix Arizona.  She works for Sephora Canada and even when she thought her years of dancing were long behind her: Last Fall choreographed the Grand Opening of Sephora in Kelowna.  She is a member of the arts council of the Central Okanagan and from time to time, still consults and scouts for talent through Fuze Entertainment Solutions (Calgary) and Niteraiders Entertainment (Las Vegas). (Dana was very technical with her performances and considered to have a very strong "Dance Spirit"...when she performed one did sit up in their seats and admire her awesome ability).
