our story


Sisters, Nadine N. Lepera-Varga and Rachel M. Lepera-Martelle, were highly involved in dance throughout their entire lives intensely studying many disciplines of dance and competing internationally for several years. As professional dancers, instructors and adjudicators along with the numerous dance educational opportunities their parents gave them as children, their dream to one day open a dance studio of their own is now their reality.

Pulse Dance Works Inc. was proudly founded in 2001 by sisters, Nadine & Rachel Lepera. Starting off with a professional dance studio in the basement of their parent's home and with lots of hard work, dedication and word of mouth, the studio outgrew their home location and was moved to Main Street Markham where they resided for five years. In the summer of 2010 Pulse Dance Works Inc. moved to 158 Anderson Avenue, a greater and larger facility with easier access to the studio to serve their clients better (conveniently located directly across from The Home Depot/LCBO & The Brick plaza's.)

Offering top quality instruction with a personable touch, Pulse Dance Works Inc. is extremely proud to have the reputation of a very friendly and family-oriented studio while maintaining exceptional recreational and competitive dance instruction in a fun, positive and educational learning environment. Pulse Dance Works Inc. also offers all dancers the experience to perform and entertain an audience with an outstanding year end Showcase.

Pulse Dance Works Inc. is also reputable for its unique high end recreational program. They believe in 1 hour, small class sizes so dancers can receive proper body conditioning, training, terminology and superb results, while offering excellent and very affordable class fees comparable or less than other dance programs in Markham. Recreational dancers receive the same exceptional instruction as those in competitive training. All classes are instructed by experienced and outstanding adult professionals.

Nadine & Rachel are extremely proud of all of their students and are happy to pay forward their gift of dance, so stop by the studio for a visit and Feel The Pulse!
