Marquisha Sparkes-Whonder found her passion for dance at the age of 17. With no prior training she was accepted into the Fine arts dance program at York University where she studied Ballet and contemporary modern dance. There she met Lineen Doung and was recruited into the Dark Dance Company where she trained and performed in various styles with many different choreographers including Allison Bradley, Shameka Blake and Hollywood Jade. She has always felt gratification by exploring diverse personas but especially enjoys hip-hop, jazz funk, and heels choreography. At the age of 23 she is ecstatic to be a member of many dance companies including Urbanesque, Artists in Motion, Dark Dance and Duality Entertainment. Marquisha aspires to explore dance to the fullest and to inspire others to appreciate its artistic value.
