Naishi Wang

contemporary dancer &
choreographer

About Naishi.

Born in Changchun, China, I have received my professional dance training from the Jilin College of Art and furthered my dance training with the Beijing Dance Academy.

In 2004, I came to Canada to continue my dance studies at the School of Toronto Dance Theater and has become a member of TDT since 2006. In TDT, I started to have the opportunity to work with worldwide choreographers such as Peter Chin, Deborah Hay, Thomas Hauert, Christopher House, Alban Richard, Heidi Strauss and Christoph Winkler.

I also worked independently with Allison Cummings, Paul-André Fortier, William Yong and Hanna Kiel for several collaborate projects and performances. I have been nominated for the Dora Awards dance division in 2013 for the Outstanding Performance in “different animals” choreographed by Hanna Kiel. In 2015, I am proud to be part of the Pan AM games opening ceremony as a dancer.

I'm currently a freelance dancer and dancemaker.

What People Are Saying.

" Naishi is a brilliant dancer who I had the pleasure to share some great moments on the stage with.

Pulga Muchochoma, TDT

From a dancer of Toronto Dance Theatre

"Naishi Wang, the troupe’s most expressive mover. ""

Micheal Crabb. Toronto Star.

From the review of Henderson/Castle - Voyager

" Over the last several years, it has been a thrill to work with Naishi on different projects. He’s a generous collaborator with a refined level of physical articulation, and a deep interest in what goes into the making of things; all of these qualities really come together in him as a performer.

Heidi Strauss, Adelheid

From "What It's Like" and "Everyday Anthems" choreographer
