Motivational Speaker, Personal Growth Coach, Author, Podcast Host of Conversations with Corliss, CEO of Corliss Co. and Founder of LEAD Conference Canada
I was raised on a farm outside of Prince Albert and am still proud to call this city my home today. I have been a home-based entrepreneur for more than 3 decades which allowed me to build a career while having and raising my three kids. Many know me as their “candle lady” as I developed my business with PartyLite and became Regional Vice President, where I had the opportunity to support, train, and mentor more than three thousand independent entrepreneurs.
In 2017 I started my company Corliss Co. Consulting to extend my speaking and coaching services to individuals and organizations outside of PartyLite. I am passionately pursuing this growth and making a difference in every way I can. I always felt like I was lighting lives, not just selling candles, and through my current business, I am doing the same, just in a different way.
I believe in leading by example and I coach people all the time to push past their limits and experience everything they can… so here I am, showing up to do what I encourage others to do. I keep reminding myself that the reason I wanted to do this was to be part of something that makes a difference. Hopes Home helps people, and with that “why” top of mind, I am willing to push through the fear and to do it anyway. Besides, fear and excitement feel the same, so I am choosing to be excited instead of afraid!
I have been dancing or teaching dancing off and on for about 4 decades. I got my start in social dancing with the USask Ballroom Dancing club and was its President way back in 1985. I am married with two adult children. I recently retired from active psychological practice and have happily taken to full retirement (I retired and then came back to work not once or twice but 3 times!). I love social dancing because it is a really classy way to have fun and get some great exercise.

Bold Dance Productions
I am a General Dentist in Prince Albert. I work alongside my mother, Dr. Louie Kriel who has owned her family practice in Prince Albert for 24 years. I am passionate about helping people, a lover of outdoor activities and of course dance. I have dedicated my life to improving oral health and bringing smiles to people’s faces. But my excitement doesn’t stop there: I am thrilled to participate in this amazing charity program, where I can help make a positive impact in the lives of the children and families a part of Hopes Home. I have danced since I was a child and am very excited to be back on the stage.
Office Managing Partner of MNP
I grew up in Prince Albert and left to play hockey at the age of 18 and continued on with school and work from there, eventually returning permanently back in 2007. I have been married for 16 years to Morgan and have 2 children, Ella who is 16 (that is crazy) and Ben who is 9. In the summer we love to spend time at the lakes either at our cabin at Candle, our trailer at Emma or a family cabin at La Ronge. In the winter you can find us either in the gym watching Ella play volleyball or the rink with me coaching Ben in hockey.
I am probably not the “stereotype” accountant otherwise I probably wouldn’t be doing this. I love working within the business community as by and large everyone is moving business forward in PA and not worried about dragging each other down. I am excited about raising funds for a great cause and getting comfortable doing something uncomfortable.
Bold Dance Productions and Emergency Medical Responder at Parkland Ambulance.
I am currently back in school full time to become a Primary Care Paramedic and will be done my courses in May. Something that scares me the most is forgetting my dance on stage and having to improvise, it has always been my fear ever since I started dancing at a young age. I am most excited about being able to dance with a long-time family friend for a fun event within the community for such a great cause.
I am a mom to 3 amazing boys and married to an even more amazing man. I’ve been a paramedic for 23 years, and still love my job. I was a cheerleader in high school for the Hilltops and Huskies. I recently jumped into being a spin instructor with the S2DIO. I have wanted to be a dancer at this event since my first time going. I am excited to be doing something I love which is sharing my love of music and getting people excited. Letting the music move them in their hearts and souls.
Owner of Bold Dance Productions
I have been dancing since the age of 3 and I can’t imagine my life without it. I have performed in Winnipeg for Disney Canada, was a company member for several years with Dance Saskatchewan’s Dare to Dance, and was honored to dance before the Queen at the Lieutenant Governors Saskatchewan Centennial Gala. I also had the opportunity to travel to Europe to represent Dance Saskatchewan and Canada with performances in: London, the Hague, Netherlands, and in Wales. I danced with the National Modern Dance Theatre and had the opportunity to perform at the Ffida Festival in Toronto. I have also attended Teacher Conferences in both Boston and New York City. I am the proud owner of Bold Dance Productions and am so excited to be a part of Swinging with the Stars again this year.

I moved from the East Coast 5 years ago with my Husband Mark, we have 3 french bulldogs. I spend a lot of time at home with my dogs, in the gym and volunteering helping others in our community. I am excited to achieve something that I dint think I could do.
Instructor at Bold Dance Productions
I was born in Prince Albert and began taking dance lessons at the age of 3. I continued to dance competitively until graduating high school and then made the difficult decision to put dance on hold to pursue her bachelor of education and a career as a teacher.I am now an elementary school teacher in the Saskatchewan Rivers Public School Division. I got the chance to re-enter the “dance world” by being offered a position as a dance instructor at Bold Dance Productions.
Manager Trudel Autobody
I moved to Prince Albert from Germany in 2009. I’m married and have 2dogs, Tuna and Salmon. I enjoy hunting, fishing, and spending time at the lake. I am excited to raise money for an amazing cause and have fun dancing.
Associate Director/ Instructor at Ballet N’ All That Jazz Dance Studio
I was born in Prince Albert and I have been teaching dance at Ballet N’ All That Jazz since I was in high school. When I am not teaching dance you can find me teaching spin at the S2dio a couple mornings a week! I am also an elementary school teacher with Saskatchewan Rivers Public School Division.
One of my favourite things about Swinging with the Stars is getting to share a love of dance with the community. It is also so amazing to see what each partnership comes up with and to see some of the incredible dances. The Stars really commit to learning various dance styles.
I enjoy travelling, a good margarita and my family, especially my grandbaby. I am looking forward to stepping out of my comfort zone by trying something new and raising funds for a great cause.
Bold Dance Productions
I was a part of the inaugural Swinging With the Stars Prince Albert crew, and am thrilled to be back on stage again this year. I teach dance at Bold Dance Studio, even while living in Saskatoon. All that you need to know about me is that since the age of 4 dancing has been my life and absolute favourite thing to do, and if I happen to take a break from dancing, it’s usually to swing a golf club.
