Learning all different styles of dance and acrobatics, she later developed a strong technical base in Ballet. As an aspiring young dancer, Haleigh danced competitively in Canada and the United States as well as having the opportunity to share the stage in the Kirov Ballet in their Canadian production of “the Nutcracker” with the Canadian Ballet Youth Ensemble.
