Cora was born with a passion for dance and an innate desire to create. This Toronto born artist has evolved from a classically trained dancer to a respected choreographer, performer and teacher. Her work has appeared on television networks such as CTV, YTV, Breakfast Television, Much Music, Family Channel and Nickelodeon.  For Seasons 1 and 2 of the hit YTV show "Make it Pop" Cora worked under the direction of Addy Chan as a member of her choreography team.  As well as working behind the scenes, Cora was featured as a dancer in the new Disney musical “Zombies” premiering February 2018. Cora has found a love and balance for both the commercial and theatrical side of dance. She is most proud of her full length show sequel entitled Carné which debut in the Fall  of 2016 and 2017.
