BIO

 

Geneviève – or Gen, as she’s most commonly referred to – is a performing artist, dance instructor, and choreographer based in Toronto. With a love for movement and for all things music-related, she began dancing at the age of 4 and taking piano lessons at age 5. She has since set out on a mission to reach as many people as possible; Gen's goals are to inspire joy and creativity, to encourage critical thinking, and to emotionally connect with those around her. She can most often be found tap dancing, teaching, and choreographing throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Gen can also be seen on stage in various plays, musicals, and multi-disciplinary performances.

When not performing, creating, or teaching, Gen likes spending time with those closest to her, playing video or board games, reading fiction novels, browsing Reddit, and just being a goofball.
