“I was always a crazy child; always running around the house,” says 18-year old Canadian Victoria Baldesarra to explain how she became what she is today – a celebrity danseuse and TV actress. She was far too energetic and her well-to-do parents thought admitting her to a dance school would help to channelize her vigorous virility and burn up all that extra energy. So, when she was all of 3 years, they started her on dance lessons. When the dance school chain Joanne Chapman School of Dance (JCSOD) opened a branch at Victoria’s home town Bolton in the Caledon, Greater Toronto Area in 2004, she came under the tutelage of award winning dance tutors Frank and Melissa Giorgio. Today, Baldesarra is globally known for her role as Michelle in ‘The Next Step’, a TV series about a dance studio. With more than 400,000 fans and followers across all social media channels, she is a rage among girls aged between 5 and 20. Victoria is just out of high school and is very keen to take up kinesiology (the study of the mechanics of body movements) and health sciences at the University level. She is also an animal lover and owns a cat named Mia.
