Jojo Zolina

better known by his stage name as Jojo Dancer is a Filipino/Canadian educator, artistic director, choreographer, performer, and actor. Jojo is recognized for continually trail-blazing a style and standard that has infused itself into today’s mainstream dance world from Madonna, to Nelly Furtado, to La Roux. In the film and TV realm, he has made a presence in Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, Legends of Tomorrow, Valley of The Boom, and Limetown to name a few.

Zolina is the founder of House of La Douche (featured in CNN’s ‘Great Big Story’, August 2019), and Over The Influence – Vancouver-based dance groups spanning 2002-present. He is best known as the dancer who brought back Waack, House, and Vogue to the Canadian dance scene; re-instilling life in these styles to voice the struggles of the LGBTQ2+ community in Canada, and around the world.

Currently, Jojo is touring a number of original shows showcasing his writing, production, direction, and performance locally, including JUST US with Della, Portrait of My DNA with House of La Douche, and Small Stage Series with various local Artists. Using his unstoppable artistry, Jojo has continued to reinvest the lessons and experience from the opportunities and encouragement afforded by his community, to explore and test new boundaries.

A recent joy has been the opportunity to inspire BC youth and school staff as part of the current Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) programming. Partnered with local artist Della, JUST US allows the duo to educate and expose the long-suppressed artistic expression of whoever we all feel we are inside.
His unique craft has afforded him the opportunity to travel the globe to represent and share his art. His fluid, signature style has captured audiences internationally. Jojo is a well-known asset in the dance industry worldwide, earning respect from the best in the business.
