  • Description


    We are a busy family of three. My wife owns a dance studio, ballet, contemporary, jazz modern, etc. styles of dance. My work changes my schedule every day. We would welcome someone who is interested in helping out with day to day family orchestration and around the house. Individuals with a dance background could also become involved at the dance studio ( Our family spends time camping and boating on the weekends and skiing during the winter. We have a dog and two cats that live indoors and are well trained. Our house is 4 bedrooms and two full baths on a half acre, so lots of opportunity to work in yard and gardens as well. We live in Duncan on Vancouver Island.
