Vanessa was born and raised in Ottawa, Canada. From a young age, she showed interest in dance, whether it was doing Traditional Caribbean dance or getting down to the latest Hip Hop songs with her cousins. Once she was introduced to Hip Hop music, she then started to explore the dance more which led to many years of training in Hip Hop and many other street/club styles, including House dance. Over the years, Vanessa has been very involved in the street dance community from organizing events to judging local street dance battles, sitting on panels and teaching classes. Teaching has given her an opportunity to help people experience a glimpse of Hip Hop and House dance and give a look into the culture.
