The Turning Pointe Staff

changing the world one step at a time

Miss Jeneane

head dance educator

Jeneane Blence founded The Turning Pointe Dance Centre in 1992. She has equal responsibility of raising her two sons, Cole and Connor, and running the dance studio. She claims that running the dance studio is the easier of the two! Miss Jeneane started dancing at the age of 9 and with the exception of a serious car accident at the age of 19, dance has been the one constant in her life. While recovering from the car accident, she was told that she would never dance again. A few years later she opened TPDC and has been dancing ever since. It was then a turning point in her life and hopes that it will as well have that positive of an impact on every dancer that learns to dance in her studio. Touching each student through dance teaches so much more and Miss Jeneane takes pride in her responsibility as a dance educator. The power of positive is real!

Laura Coakley

Miss Laura has a deep passion for dancing and has been dancing with Miss Jeneane and The Turning Pointe since the age of five! She is a certified elementary and special education teacher. She states that the love of teaching started with teaching dance. She has been teaching at the dance studio since the age of 13! Her life has changed a bit since then! Now she is married to Steve and a mother to Conor. The Turning Pointe has always been a family affair for Miss Laura with her dad Larry dancing with the Dancing Dads from the very beginning and her husband Steve joining at times too. She can't wait to get Conor dancing as well!
