About The Authors

Lisa and Chrissy BrkichImagine a household where there was always a radio tune playing, songs “from the old country” being sung at the basement parties, and the rich bellowing sounds emanating out of father’s accordion whilst accompanied by anyone at the party who knew how to tickle the ivories… such is the family that we were born into… and wouldn’t have changed a thing!  This lively, forever frolicking, world of music molded us and shaped us until we were old enough (or young enough) to adorn our first pair of ballet shoes, and we’ve kept them on ever since.  

After graduating from Ryerson University with a B.F.A. in Dance, Christine and Lisa founded and directed InMotion Dance Company.  It was with this fantastic collective of dancers and choreographers where they learned to hone their choreographic and performance skills whilst leading the company to perform in various destinations throughout Canada and Europe.  In 2000, InMotion Dance School became a derivative of the Company.  Owned by Christine and Lisa Brkich, they then continued their work with students teaching a variety of dance disciplines and offering their students a safe environment to grow and discover their own inner artist for over a decade.  

Upon completing her B.Ed in dance education, Lisa enjoys teaching the many talented young artists of Cawthra Park Secondary School and currently Christine is still teaching young dancers in Toronto, while at home with her three year old, reading along side him as he discovers “The Legwarmers” for the first time.
