Owen Sound: A Dreamcrafting Community
When a hometown girl began dance lessons as an eight year-old, she
didn't dream that her
talents would ultimately impact between 1,000-2,000 young people.
More than 40 years a teacher, Sheila Milne
is still living her
big dream, "to see what good dancing was all about and come home and share it."
With a strong Scottish heritage, Sheila
developed as a dancer, and began the weekly trek to Toronto to study with the late Gladys Forrester.Ultimately she
moved to Toronto for daily dance lessons."Back then we did it all, ballet, theatre type dancing, acrobatics and highland with a lesser emphasis on highland."
The lure to return home and share her
gifts with others was strong.It became a reality after she
married Jack Milne.Sheila's first studio was in her
home with only a few students.Currently, with a formal studio above her
husband's place of business, Sheila
has more than 100 students.
Studying with Sheila
is unique in that her
standards of excellence extend beyond performing.Sheila
has a motto at the studio; "Fun at a higher level".Sheila
has learned that it involves struggle and hard work to bring to dancing the respect that the craft deserves.A strong work ethic is imperative.You have to learn how to win and how to lose.In Sheila's opinion, "If you're going to do well at anything it has to be more than wanting to, it involves commitment."When it comes to core values, Sheila
believes that anything is possible and you can always learn.
Through personal dedication Sheila
has been an example, not only to her
students, but also to her
community.She is a member of the British Association of Teachers of Dance, the Scottish Dance Teachers' Alliance and did her Fellows exam with the United Kingdom Association.She
is in demand for workshops, not only coast-to-coast in Canada but also in Scotland.She
has coached in many areas of the United States, Scotland and from Cape Breton to Victoria, B.C.Sheila
has done workshops in "steps and training champions" having been invited to the UK Teachers of Dancing conference.
There's a song, which says, "Save the Last Dance for Me" and Sheila
will probably be on hand to demonstrate why.
