Studio Director at Sea Island Ballet
As a young girl, in love with the idea of ballet, Miyouki Jego stood frozen in the doorway of her first ballet class. The little five-year-old quietly wept in the corner of the studio, intently observing but far too intimidated to actively participate. Several weeks passed. One day the director of the studio called Miyouki and her mother into her office, sat in front of the fledgling student, and asked directly, “Do you want to dance?”. Young Jego finally raised her head to look directly into the eyes of her interrogator and confidently replied, “yes”. From that moment on Jego has not stopped dancing. She is now the owner and director of Sea Island Ballet Studios Inc. Having had extensive professional training in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia, Ms. Jego always had a desire to teach. Following her dreams, she has looked to the likes of Hanne Livingstone, David Adams, Terri-Lynne Banfield, Sheila Kennedy, and many other accomplished professionals for mentorship. She has now been teaching for over 20 years. Miyouki Jego is a certified Cecchetti instructor. She continues to develop her career worldwide particularly in the Cecchetti method of ballet, with the internationally accredited Cecchetti Society. Not limited to ballet, Ms. Jego has also been trained in various disciplines of dance including tap, jazz, modern, musical theatre, lyrical, and flamenco.
