Dance Company, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater,

American Ballroom Dance Theater, Toronto Dance Theatre

and The National Ballet of Canada.


She has choreographed for studios and schools within the

Greater Toronto Area as well as city-wide events and

As a vocalist and writer she has performed with Toronto

based reggae band, Reggaddiction, and also recorded a

reggae-dub version of ‘Words’ on their Neil Young cover

album. She also enjoys lending her talents to various tribute

shows both local and afar. Last November, she performed as

'Scary Spice' with Wannabe: A Spice Girls Tribute, on their

nearly sold out Canadian west coast tour.


For this fall as things have opened back up slightly, she has just completed a live outdoor performance workshop with

Corpus Dance Projects and also filmed a national TV spot. Next year she hopes to return to performing in theatre venues

with the cast of Legends of Motown and is looking forward to resuming tour dates across Canada for the spring.
