Affectionately known as “Miss Kate,” she moved to Yukon in 2012 to experience life outside the big city and lend her dance teaching expertise to the community of Whitehorse. While a job opportunity brought Kate to the North, its people and lifestyle are what have kept her in the territory. She truly loves to entertain. For Kate, the magic of performing is in being able to tell the audience a story and help them forget everything else, even if just for a moment. She hopes Velvet Antler Productions can bring a little of that magic to each event they have the privilege of being part of.
Rebecca (a.k.a. “Legs”) moved to Yukon in 2000 for a summer contract as a cancan dancer with the Frantic Follies. Little did she know the territory would become her home for the past 15 years. She was raised in the dance studio by her mother, a ballet teacher who loved all things art and dance. Rebecca soon followed in her mother’s footsteps, expanding her dance horizons as she grew older. Eventually she fell in love with all things vaudeville, showgirl, and burlesque. Rebecca is so excited for Velvet Antler Productions to continue to feed her need for these genres of dance, and to show Yukon and beyond just what we can offer!
Allyn grew up in Whitehorse. After living, studying and dancing in Toronto and Vancouver it was time to move home. In Toronto Allyn was training in classical ballet, jazz and musical theatre. After realising that auditions sucked, the realisation that the commercial dance industry was not for her quickly followed. In Vancouver Allyn received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Simon Fraser University and studied at Capilano University in Arts and Entertainment Management. Allyn is so happy to be dancing, teaching and creating with people who support one another and their projects.
Breagha is a born and raised Yukoner. She grew up in Whitehorse and danced at Northern Lights School of Dance under Kate and Becky. While at university in Nova Scotia, she trained and taught at a local dance studio. She also taught university level dance classes in jazz, contemporary, hip hop and highland dance. The beauty and community of the North brought her back to Yukon. She loves performing and teaching. Velvet Antler Productions gives her the opportunity to do that in a fun and supportive way!
