“You get what you work for. Not what you wish for.”

Syona Joshi has never been a stranger to hard work, as she grew up immersed in a sport that required diligent training. At age seven, her fascination for gymnastics became evident, leading to her enrollment at the University of Toronto. Her advanced skills manifested into Provincial Level opportunities, where she developed her meticulous technique and continued to flourish.

At the age of ten, she transitioned to dance, where she quickly attained a love for the art. The precision and punctuality required in the dance arts continues to keep Syona motivated.
During her first year of dance, Syona was given an Acrobatic solo, for which she won a series of overalls and scholarships. Furthermore, that summer, she was named 2016 A-List Acrobat. The following year, she placed in every competition she attended and was awarded numerous scholarships and special awards titled ‘Terrific Transitions,’ ‘Perfect Balance, ‘Wing and a Prayer,’ ‘Silent Mode,’ and ‘Execution Excellence.’

During the next few years, her success escalated, and she began to explore solos in other styles of dance, specializing in contemporary, jazz, and lyrical. Syona adores the performing environment and loves sharing her creativity and passion with others. Her maturity allows her to thrive in professional circumstances, and collaborate with more experienced dancers. Currently, she is training as a soloist with the Canadian National Team, which will represent Canada in the Dance World Cup 2020. She is also a member of the advanced team at The Nine Dance Academy.

Aside from dance, Syona has trained in Musical Theatre, Piano, and Vocal lessons, materializing more involvement in the entertainment industry. Syona has always been a straight-A student, and is a part of the International Baccalaureate program at Parkdale. Her remarkable work ethic and constant strive for excellence will ensure a successful future for Syona.
