Jacinta Hu

Jacinta is from Vancouver, Canada, and has been involved with music and dance for as long as she can remember. As a child, she competed in figure skating and rhythmic gymnastics until she stumbled into the world of tap dance, and hasn’t looked back since. With a strong background in music theory, Jacinta has marvelled at the intersection of rhythm and dance, and hopes to spread her love of musicality in dance to her students. She has supplemented her studies in tap at the Richmond Academy of Dance with tap festivals such as the Third Coast Rhythm Project in 2012 and the Vancouver Tap Dance Festival in 2014, and more recently continued with workshops with Brenda Bufalino at the American Tap Dance Foundation last fall.
