Genevieve Merkel (C.D.T.A. & R.A.D.)
Originally from Prince George B.C., Genevieve moved to Toronto to pursue her love of dance. She trained at both The National Ballet School of Canada and Ryerson University’s Theatre School. In New York, she furthered her training at Steps on Broadway and Alvin Ailey. As a teenager, she toured across Canada and the United States with the production Spirit of a Nation’ choreographed by Jacques Lamay and Jannis Dunning.
Genevieve has performed in several music videos, commercials and industrials most notably for Jonovision, Econoline Crush, Molson Canadian, General Motors, Sears and Kodak. Her resume contains performing credits for the Charlottetown Festival, Ontario Place, and the Toronto Argonauts. She also enjoyed working with acclaimed choreographers David Earl, Danny Grossman and Lawrence Gratus.
