It has been exciting to watch dancers of hers on “SYTYCD”, “Dancing With The Stars” as well as numerous music videos. Most recently students of Miss Mensinger can be seen as the lead in the new “Dirty Dancing” tour, head choreographer and dancer for “Groove Academy”, solo tap dancer in the Opening Ceremonies of Olympics and featured soloist tapper in The Grandstand show at the Calgary Stampede. She is very proud of those that have taken on teaching roles as well, in studios and workshops as well as artistic director of the contemporary company “O2 the dance company”.
Miss Mensinger’s love of dancing and dancers has been a lifelong affair. Susan Mensinger was a dancer in the Young Canadians back in 1970-73. Margot Gooder McDermott, teacher for the Young Canadians, fueled Susan’s passion for dance and performing. Miss Mensinger is honored and excited to complete the circle by now being one of the teachers that inspire our future entertainers.Return to Instructional Faculty
