Trina grew up in Moose Jaw, SK, where she began dancing at the age of 4. After completing a degree at the University of Saskatchewan, Trina followed her love of dance to New York City where she trained at both Broadway Dance Centre and Steps on Broadway. While in NYC, Trina was honoured to perform in 'Dedicated to Dance', a tribute show that highlighted Broadway dancer Alan Onickel's impressive career. Trina was also hired out of NYC for a year-long European Tour with the show, 'Magic of the Dance'. As a featured tap dancer in Magic of the Dance, she was interviewed for a CBC broadcast due to the show's success. Next, Trina toured Asia with one of her favourite musicals of all time, '42nd Street’. Working with Tony Award nominated producer, Mark Bramble, was a highlight of her career. While in China, Trina also performed on the season finale of 'My Show', (China Idol).
Since moving to Toronto, Trina has co-founded Vintage Taps; a song/dance group with a focus on Vaudeville Era tap dancing. Trina has also performed with the Toronto Rhythm Initiative, Soul Symposium, Sapphire Dance Productions, Studio 60, KOKUS Productions, and the JL Experience. Venues have included: Fall For Dance North, The Toronto International Tap Dance Festival, Toronto Fringe Festival, Talent Defined, Bazaar, Comedy Tonight, PRIDE, MTV Canada, and the Stella Adler Theatre on Hollywood Blvd, CA. Trina is happy to call Toronto home, and looking forward to another great year at Swansea School of Dance!
