Jonelle Gunderson: Movement Instructor

Jonelle (she/her) is a Toronto-based actor, writer and creator originally from Saskatchewan.
Her experience as an actor has always been rooted in the physical—a kinetic understanding that builds character by using tension, flow, gesture and expression to define relationships.
She is excited to bring her approach (built on the shoulders of many mentors and influences) to The Dirt, where she’s been studying as an actor since the days at the Coffin Factory Lofts.
Jonelle is currently studying to become a teacher of the Mitzvah Technique under Toshie Okabe, with a particular interest in the Itcush Method, as developed by contemporary dancer and somatic pioneer Amelia Itcush.
