In March of 1974 Dan Healey was a student member of BCI teacher John Ballachey’s school trip to the USSR.  This trip proved pivotal and set Mr. Healey on a lifelong interest in Russia, its people and history.

Dan Healey attended Brockville Collegiate Institute from 1971 to 1975. During his time at BCI Mr. Healey was heavily involved in the school’s Theater Arts program which he credits with helping him develop a cultural education.  Following high school Mr. Healey earned a Bachelor of Arts (1981), Russian Language and Literature from the University of Toronto.   Subsequent to this he went on to earn a MA (1993) Soviet Area Studies at the University of London then a MA (1993) History from the University of Toronto.
