Zola Ncube by Lighthouse Photography

Nokuzola Ncube
I am an academic and creative. Academically, I am interested in mental health services and intimate partner violence during COVID-19. I am currently completing my MSc. examining the intersection of the aforementioned topics while also pursuing other interesting topics such as kindness, aging, and women’s health. Creatively, my dance career has taken me from all over Ontario, to Zimbabwe and back over the course of 12+ years.  Between using dance as an empowerment tool through the Sexual Assault Centre of London (renamed ‘ANOVA’), performing at National Basketball League games, winning national dance awards, and choreographing for international music videos–  one question has led my artistry: “What story am I telling?”. As a hip-hop and contemporary dance instructor, I encourage my students to answer that question through their movements. Sometimes the answer is closer to “none Miss Zola, I’m not telling a story– I’m just existing” – and that’s okay too.  As an academic and creative, I believe dance has the ability to heal, communicate and bridge seemingly disparate worlds.

I have been dancing for almost 4 months with O.N.E centre and I am on the competitive dance team! I am currently working in St. Thomas as a nursing student and doing part-time school. I love dancing and meeting so many people. I am happy that I started dancing now when I couldn’t as a child. I will continue dancing and learn new skills from amazing dancers.
