Roger Sinha is a charismatic choreographer and dancer, and the artistic director of Sinha Danse, founded in 1991. Recognized as one of Canada’s contemporary dance pioneers inspired by non-western cultural practices, he received numerous prestigious awards.

Born in London, of Indian and Armenian parents, his mixed heritage and experiences of racism became central themes in his choreography. He is also regularly invited to teach workshops and masterclasses to students and professionals.
