Project Dancer – Megumi Kokuba
Megumi Kokuba was born in Okinawa, the southernmost island of Japan. She studied ballet from the age of two with her inspiring teacher Kikuko Nanjo. After graduating from Junior College in Okinawa, Megumi came across contemporary dance and was smitten. She moved to Toronto in 2009 to train at The School of Toronto Dance Theatre. After graduating in 2012, Megumi has had many inspiring performance opportunities. Among them was Peggy Baker’s Night Garden for Nuit Blanche, Gadfly’s Stygmata and the Duet work Alleluia with Robert Glumbeck for Desrosiers Dance Projects. Megumi also had the amazing opportunity to join Toronto Dance Theatre as a TD Dance Intern for the 2012/2013 season and is delighted to be working with TDT since. She recently danced in Eleven Accords choreograph by Christopher House in November 2013.
