Jana Gau - Professional Coach NCCP Level 1
I started skating at the age of five and it wasn't long before skating became a passion of mine. I skated with the Camrose Skating Club for 14 years and then started coaching with the club after that. This is my 13th year coaching with the club. I have loved sharing my passion with these young ladies and watching their improvements throughout the years. I currently teach Grade One at St. Patrick School in Camrose and have been teaching for 9 years. I am also a competitive swim coach and during the spring and summer I coach for the Camrose Swim Club. I enjoy many types of dance especially ballet and jazz. When I have a few free minutes I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I want to thank all members of the skating club for a wonderful year!
