Since 2009 Thoenn Glover has been making a career as a Vancouver-based choreographer, dancer, and teacher. Her background of growing up off the grid near Smithers BC has given her an instinctual and visceral approach to her work, and a ‘DIY/anything’s possible’ attitude towards the art form.
She received her formal dance training at Arts Umbrella has performed for Dancers Dancing, Kinesis Dance Somatheatro, MartaMarta Productions, Mascall Dance, Kokoro Dance, and Vancouver City Dance Theatre. Thoenn has presented her choreographic work in Montreal, Whitehorse, Halifax, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, and Vancouver. In 2012 she was recognized as an innovative creator in the Georgia Straight’s Fall Arts Preview.
Thoenn also facilitates youth engagement projects where youth are performers and co-creators of productions. Her goal is to ignite passion for participating in performance art and help cultivate art-conscious young adults in our Canadian culture.
