Background[]

A 33-year-old tapper, mover, shaker and boundary pusher, Montreal native Justin Jackson uses his dance performances to promote joy and share his personal journey.

Primarily a tap dancer, Justin's performances are heavily influenced by pop and Black culture, mixing old-school style with new. He's been dancing for over 10 years, using his art to help uplift unprivileged and underserved children in communities throughout Canada.
