Tosh Sutherland is a Vancouver based dancer, performer and educator. He began his training with Bonnie-Jean Anderson in a local studio in British Columbia and his passion for the dance only grew. He has trained with various instructors from all over North America, most notably attending the prestigious School at Jacob’s Pillow under the direction of Dianne Walker. At 16, Tosh was awarded the bronze medal for male soloists at the World Tap Dance Championships in Riesa, Germany.
Immediately following graduation, Tosh moved to Toronto and within the year, he was performing in an all tap dance production called ‘i Think i Can’ with the Lorraine Kimsa Theatre for Young People. Since then, he has had the privilege of taking his career all over the world. After several contracts at sea as a principle dancer with Princess Cruises, he landed back in British Columbia to begin making waves of his own.
Tosh has worked with many companies in Vancouver and in a variety of art forms. From a Tap Dance and Flamenco adaptation production of ‘West Side Story’ with Karen Flamenco to a likeable ruffian in Awkward Production’s Fringe hit musical ‘Cry-baby: The Musical’. Tosh was last seen in Saskatchewan performing in the ‘Drowsy Chaperone’ with Prairie Skies Musical Theatre Co. He is currently the Artistic Director of the Tap Artistry program residing at the Vancouver Tap Dance Society.
His most recent credits include; Danny Nielsen’s production of Love.Be.Best.Free, Gateway Theatre’s production of The Music Man and S.T.I.L. (Stuff That I Like) directed and choreographed by Troy Mclaughlin. When not performing, you can find Tosh in the wildness of British Columbia; most likely with a fishing rod in hand.
