After a year of intensive training in ballet and jazz, Eilleen was accepted into the National Ballet School’s Teacher Training Program. In 1995 she graduated as a certified member of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (CSB). Since then, she has taught ballet, tap and jazz at many schools in Toronto.
