Jocelyn Mah

Hailing from Calgary, Canada, Jocelyn Mah first studied as a classical pianist. Her love of music led her to begin training at The School of Decidedly Jazz Danceworks, as well as performing with Alberta Dance Theatre for Young People. Jocelyn is a 2017 graduate from The School of Toronto Dance Theatre, where she had the honour of dancing works by Danny Grossman, Christopher House, Sasha Ivanochko and Apolonia Velasquez, among others. She was the winner of The School of Toronto Dance Theatre’s inaugural Winchester Prize for Choreography, and her work has been presented at numerous Canadian dance festivals, including August, Augusta at The SummerWorks Performance Festival, and Five Taken at Dance Ontario’s Dance Weekend, both 2017. Jocelyn’s choreography is often inspired by jazz music, and the lives of the artists who wrote and performed it. Since graduating, she has danced in Toronto with Kaeja d’Dance, Michael Menegon’s Sound of Movement, Charles Moulton, Near&Far Projects and Laurence Siegel. Besides dancing and choreographing, Jocelyn has co-produced dance performances, worked as an Assistant Stage Manager and a Front of House Manager.
