NATASHA POON WOO


Natasha Poon WooAfter leaving Toronto for several years to earn a BFA in Dance Performance from SUNY Purchase College in New York, NATASHA POON WOO returned to her home city feeling disconnected from the dance community. The Garage has given her the opportunity to forge new connections, strengthen existing ones, and breathe new life and purpose into her relationship with dance that is otherwise sometimes often full of pressure and anxiety.  Natasha grows increasingly grateful for her experiences in dance to date, which include touring Holland and Switzerland with Conny Janssen Danst (NL), a residency at the Beijing Dance Academy with the Kevin Wynn Collection (NYC), and more recently, working with Toronto-based companies Benjamin Landsberg Dance Projects, Little Pear Garden Dance Company, Rock Bottom Movement, and Gadfly. She is currently Rehearsal Director for her beloved alma mater, Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre, an award-winning modern repertory company for dancers under 20 years of age, and Managing & Rehearsal Director of Human Body Expression. Some of Natasha’s other interests include hand sewing, kombucha, styling hair, and perfectionism.
