Angela Mulrooney, Director
Originally a gymnast, Angela Mulrooney started dancing at 18 years of age at the University of Saskatchewan Ballroom Dancing Club while earning her DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) at the University of Saskatchewan. Before long she was competing at the professional level in American Rhythm and placed 6th in Canada.
Angela moved to Calgary in 2005 where she continued to practice the two loves of her life – dance & dentistry. She danced for a professional contemporary dance company (La Caravan Dance Theatre) and circus company (Velocity Motion Werks) where she did aerial silk, contortion, and trapeze while practicing dentistry full-time.
Unfortunately, in 2013 after running her own high end dental practice for 4 years, she sustained a career ending brain injury that forced her out of dental practice. A year later, she suffered a stroke that severely affected her leg. To combat the chronic pain and malfunction of her leg, she returned to a vigorous ballroom training regimen and on the path to doing so, she became vice-champion in Senior I at the Canadian Closed Championships in 2015 with her partner Michael Currie, winning a berth to represent Canada at the World Championships in Spain for December 2015.
In March of 2015, she opened Unleashed Dance Company and in June of 2015 sold her dental practice. Since then, she has dedicated herself to a full-time pursuit of dance which includes many wins on the international competitive circuit as a Professional Female Salsa Soloist.
Angela endeavour to share with the Alberta & international dance community her vast knowledge of dance, kinesiology, and anatomy while creating a fun and safe learning environment. Join her on the Unleashed journey …
