Gabriela Jovian-Mazon

As a child, Gabriela Jovian-Mazon started off with Mexican folklore dance in her home town Mississauga, Ontario and competed in jazz, ballet and musical theatre dance. When she moved to Montréal to study, she discovered urban dance and transitioned towards hip-hop, heels, street jazz and now specializes in waacking. Fascinated by the different dance styles, she trained on her own to pursue a dance career after completing her Bachelor’s in Civil Engineering.

She performed in a Subway commercial, the movie Super Singh and music videos for Blood & Glass, Serena Ryder and Vrak TV. Notably, Gabriela had the main role as a puppeteer in The Nut Job Live, she danced for the musical production Kabaret and was part of the Forêt Noire piece for Festival 100Lux 2019. She regularly performs with the artist Kizaba and at events like Articien, Francos de Montréal and Montréal Pride; her art also brings her to occasionally perform in Toronto.

Currently, if she is not performing on screen or on stage, Gabriela is discovering the world of creation and is a member of Asymmetry Creations directed by Axelle Munezero. She participates in dance battles, trains her freestyle and is always striving to improve in all aspects of performance. Gabriela is an artist characterised by originality, versatility and theatricality, and she is excited to dance and create more.
