Linda was born and raised in Ottawa, and a graduate from the Child and Youth Care Studies program at Ryerson University in downtown Toronto. Linda has brought boundless energy and humour to Culture Shock Toronto (CSTO). Linda, along with Vanessa Dovigo, is CSTO's Co-Artistic Director.
She started dancing in high school, learning modern, lyrical, and jazz. CSTO is her first venture into hip hop dance. Though Linda had heard of Culture Shock when she was living in Ottawa, it wasn't until moving to Toronto that she took a CSTO company class. After that first class, she knew she would be back, and Linda is now a proud member of the Culture Shock family. CSTO has made her a more confident dancer, and has opened her eyes to different styles of dance. It has allowed her to meet new people and has taught her to constantly work hard to improve herself as a dancer.
