Lissa Bondio

                    Dance Instructor


Born & raised in Niagara Falls, Lissa’s parents enrolled her into dance classes at the teeny tiny age of 2 1/2 … tap, jazz, ballet and baton. Over the years, she won several duet competitions with her sister as well as group competitions all over Ontario and in the U. S. with Beryl Bird and Miss Bev.    Lissa then found the Wendy Leard School of Dance where she was awarded the Tap Scholarship and became part of the Dance Company. Teaching for Wendy became her dream job and very shortly thereafter, she was introduced to Garden City Productions and the Firehall Theatre.  Lissa was forever bitten by the Musical Theatre bug! Among her most favourite and memorable productions that she has had the pleasure of performing in are Cabaret, 42nd Street, Singin’ In The Rain, Sugarbabies and Peter Pan.  Lissa is incredibly  excited and proud to share her joy and passion with the students of the  Niagara Dance Academy.  She has no doubt that they will have fun and achieve great things no matter what they choose to pursue.  She will be their biggest fan and cheer “Break a Leg!”  and will always encourage them to dream BIG.
