Ronin Remers

Ronin Remers

Ms Ronin found her love of dance at a young age, right here at GBSD. Beginning in ballet, she has danced in jazz, contemporary, modern, musical theatre, hip-hop, tap and pointe classes. Travelling often for dance conventions and classes allowed her the opportunity to learn from numerous choreographers and dance schools.

After a short-lived ‘retirement’ to attend post-secondary, Ronin returned to continue teaching. Her favourite dance form is ballet, in which she is trained in the Russian style of Vaganova.

Being apart of the studio for over 20 years, she hopes to continue creating safe spaces for dancers to find and share their passion for dance, regardless of their age or skill level.

Outside of the studio, Ronin enjoys caring for her house plants, being outdoors with her pets, and spending time with friends and family. Here’s to another season of fun, dedication, hard work and DANCE!

We are EXCITED to have Ms Ronin join us for our 2024-25 Season!

Tyler Hergott

Tyler Hergott

Tyler started dance at the young age of three but knew he was hooked the first time he watched his
older sisters on stage. Since then, dance has always been the guiding force in his life. In his time dancing,
Tyler has trained in tap, lyrical, contemporary, jazz, ballet, hip hop, and musical theatre.


While Tyler has trained in all styles, he has found his greatest passion in Tap dance. Tyler is drawn to the
rhythms and music he can create in his movement and prides himself on his view of Tap dance as an
instrument. His understanding is rooted deeply in historical and practical knowledge of the dance,
passed on to him by some of the greatest tap dancers today, including: Dianne Walker, Sarah Savelli,
Starinah Dixon, Sam Weber, Ray Hesselink, Maud Arnold, Mike Glenney, Randy Skinner, Gregg Russell,
and Bril Barrett. Tyler's dance experience has led him far from home, having travelled to Detroit,
Cleveland, and even Germany in pursuit of furthering his craft.


Tyler was also a proud member of Team Canada for Tap, and competed in Germany at the World Tap
Dance Championships, earning himself Silver and Bronze medals in the process. He's attended such
workshops as: Dianne Walker Artists Symposium the Canadian Dance Expo, the Eastern Canadian Tap Conference,Tapperfest, and the Toronto Rhythm Initiative Summer Intensive and he has also completed the  American Tap Dance Foundation Teacher Training Certificate Program.


Tyler began teaching dance in 2019 and was immediately drawn to the growth he can help nurture in his
students and the challenge of creating new ways to push his students to their full potential. He
embraces a fun, upbeat classroom environment rooted in a deep respect for the dance and the history it
represents.

We are EXCITED to have Mr Tyler join us for our 2024-25 Season!
