Who We Are

Lauren and Caitlin

Lauren found Caitlin in 2010, while at Ryerson University, looking for collaborators for a new creation process with Alias Dance Project. Her fierce dancing caught her eye, instantly. Their relationship started at that moment and they have been working together endlessly ever since, producing staged performances, teaching, and programming dance events, all in an effort to build opportunities for their community to connect with their bodies through art and movement. 

In 2013, they decided it was time to build a permanent home for the company (aliasdanceproject.com), and after two years of grant writing and planning, The Cornerstone Studio was born. For us, starting the Cornerstone was a chance to share our expertise and experience with you. We hope our enthusiasm will ignite your passion!

We founded Cornerstone Studio to provide a safe, supportive, fun and nurturing environment. Our dance and fitness studio is focused on young performing arts students, health and fitness lovers, and dance professionals alike. Our experience as professional artists has taught us the benefits of a cross-disciplinary approach. It’s why we are both a dance and fitness studio. We’re offering athletic fitness conditioning along side performing arts programming!
