When Nathalie Heath heard that she had made the Top 22 on Season 3 of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA she could barely contain her excitement. “Finally! I’ve auditioned three times for the show and I wanted it so badly,” she says. Hailing from Surrey, British Columbia, Nathalie says it was her hard work and her focus that got her here.
Starting dance at the age of four, the contemporary dancer has also developed training in jazz, ballet, modern, musical theatre, street jazz and hip-hop. No stranger to professional work, Nathalie has had a long list of opportunities including being the dance double to Hilary Duff in The Lizzie McGuire Movie and one of the lead dancers in Michael Bublé’s “Haven’t Met You Yet” music video.
Ever ready for the competition, Nathalie has high hopes that she will get to work with some of her favorite choreographers including Mia Michaels. Nathalie says that Mia “seems to allow every dancer to deliver a great performance and she takes the audience on an incredible journey.”
When not on the dance floor, Nathalie loves cooking, meditating, reading fiction novels and spending time with her girlfriends. Nathalie feels most comfortable when she is on stage performing. At five-years-old she told her mother she loves the stage and says, “I have not looked back since.”
Nathalie feels that Canadian dancers are one of a kind because, “we are hungry! We have to seek out instructors, travel and work very hard to become GREAT.” It is this same hunger that she will bring to the SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE CANADA stage saying viewers can “expect that I’ll put my heart and soul into each and every performance. I am not leaving the competition without putting everything I have to offer into my performances.”
