Pamela holds an MFA in Dance from the University of Hawaii at Mānoa and a BFA Honors in Dance from York University. Pamela’s experience as an artist-educator, advocate and administrator of dance are deeply informed by her national and international experiences. Pamela’s investment in Toronto dance comes with her longtime commitment as Associate Director of Outreach for Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre, Associate Director of Great Moving Dancers, and her collaboration with Returning River Collective in Toronto. Her international experiences as lecturer at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa (UHM), Artistic Director of UHM Dance Ensemble, Performance Artist and Research Specialist with Joe Goode Performance Group fuel her new perspectives on dance education, performance, recruitment, outreach and advocacy for dance training programs, dance productions and community outreach initiatives. Pamela is thrilled to join the team at The School of Toronto Dance Theatre.

We are delighted to welcome Pamela to The School of Toronto Dance Theatre!
