“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”
– Pele

From a young age, Petra Ayedzi has always been involved in the performing arts community from playing piano and singing in the church choir, to performing in theatre throughout elementary school and highschool, and finally finding dance later on in her teen years.

From the age of 3, Petra trained in piano at Carillon Music, studying classical, jazz and pop music, while also performing at recitals. Petra gained experience in music theory certification, and began utilizing her instrumental knowledge in an ensemble setting, as well as a solo environment.

Throughout her years in piano training, Petra also developed an interest in music and acting. At the age of 15, she decided to add vocal training to her portfolio and grew her knowledge and experience with singing at Carillon. With singing, she won numerous awards, and sang for showcases and ceremonies both in and out of school.

Petra then combined those two interests in her highschool setting, and joined the school choir and theatre company. Petra participated in plays such as “Annie” as the pit choir, and in 11th grade, she starred as main character Donkey in “Shrek the Musical”, and was heavily praised for her live performance.

Petra’s dance journey began in 2018, where she joined the highschool dance team. Having always been interested in dance through movies, she continued to explore her interest in dance with taking drop-ins at Vancouver studios praiseTEAM and A3. Developing growth in a short period of time, she was given the responsibility of coaching her senior hip hop team during her final year of highschool.

Petra’s dance experience went on to involve training competitively at A3 District with coaches Roberta Bierman, Erik Pereña, Carlo Atienza and Christopher Bonus, as well as Jerome Esplana at Trek of Arts. Inspired by her mentors both in and outside of the dance community, she began to pursue teaching, and made her debut at A3 District’s “New Kids on the Block”.

Petra’s growing passion for the arts shows in all the work she immerses herself in.
