About Shelley Angélil


I have two passions: Movement and Education. I studied dance for many years, touring in a small contemporary dance company. I have a Masters in Education, and had a career that included academic literacy teaching at UCT and teacher training. My move into Nia has taken me on a profound journey of  discovery. I have taken every training available to me, culminating in the Black Belt training in the USA. I love to share my passion for this wonderful technique.
