Nailah Ramcharan-Gibbs is an emerging multidisciplinary dance artist from Toronto. She is known for being an athletic and energetic performer, empathetic teacher, and inquisitive choreographer.
A graduate of York University’s Dance program, Nailah's distinctive athleticism and energetic performance quality stems from a background in musical theatre and gymnastics and is amplified through her training at The Ailey School where she found her home base in Horton and Jazz techniques. Since graduating, she has had the opportunity to train and perform with companies in the USA including VIM VIGOR, Ailey II, Helen Simoneau, Ronald K Brown, and Buglisi Dance Theater. Since returning to Toronto as a freelance dancer in Toronto she has been the recipient of three choreographic residencies and has worked as a featured artist for many local companies, including Theatre Oculus; Expect Theatre; The And, Stage Company; and VIBE Arts. Her artistry utilises interdisciplinary collaborations, sophisticated athleticism, and transitional performance and imagery, translated through a movement quality inspired and influenced by the extremes of physicality and nuances of musicality.
Nailah is constantly searching for further learning opportunities to strengthen her skills as a teacher, performer, and choreographer. Her work is known for diverse interdisciplinary collaboration, sophisticated athleticism, and nuanced musicality. She has recently began to explore performing as a cirque artist, specializing in fusing acrobatics, handbalancing, and contortion with contemporary dance, and is in the process of completing her bachelor’s degree in Athletic Therapy at Sheridan College.
