Chaneigh Bernard

Born into a family of dancers, Chaneigh began her dance career at 6 weeks old, in a baby bassinet in the corner of her mother’s dance studio. She hit the stage at age two and a half, and hasn’t stopped dancing since. Chaneigh was classically trained at the Karen Bernard School of Dance in Winchester, MA, in ballet, tap, jazz, pointe, musical theater, hip hop, lyrical, modern, and contemporary. She performed many lead children’s roles, including Clara, with the Albany Berkshire Ballet in its production of the Nutcracker from 2005-2010. In 2015, she completed the three-year Dance Teacher’s Club of Boston Dance Education Training Course. Chaneigh has been on staff at the Karen Bernard School of Dance for the past five years, teaching various styles including ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, and hip hop. She continued her dance career at Boston University as a member of the Division 1 Varsity Dance Team for two seasons, performing hip hop, jazz, and pom. She has taken classes from a variety of well-known Boston-based teachers, and attended conventions with Dance Masters of America and Dance Teachers Club of Boston. As a senior at Boston University, Chaneigh is so grateful to continue her dance career with DanceWorks Boston, in such a warm, fun, and encouraging environment.
