Tin Gamboa

Meet Tin

Tin Gamboa is a Filipina dance artist who primarily resides on MST homelands (Vancouver). She is focused on cultivating a cross-cultural arts practice between both places she calls home, Canada and the Philippines. She recently completed her MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts at SFU, taught as part-time faculty at De La Salle Benilde College, and created and performed a new piece at the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Koryolab 2023. She is excited to be engaging with the Vancouver dance community in various capacities as a choreographer, administrator, writer, and dancer. Devoted to being a lifelong student and artist, Tin is hopeful about the questions, juicy conversations, and creations that are born out of collective and thoughtful art-making.

Free Open Workshops 

As part of Tin Gamboa's residency at New Works, Tin invites you to four free, open workshops on a voice and movement practice called dama, which in tagalog means 'to sense.' In this practice, we will tune into our breath and impulse via movement and sound, while exploring our pulse as a group.
These workshops are non-cumulative and there is no prior movement or voice training required. One of the draws for Tin is to see how dama would function as a collective community practice, so you are welcome to attend as many of these workshops as you'd like. 

Dates: June 19, 20, 21 & 26
Time: 9:30 am - 12:00 pm (duration of the workshop: 2.5 Hours)
Location: Q7, 77 E 7th Ave, Vancouver, BC V5T 1M4
Doors open at: 9:15 am. 

The workshop begins at 9:30 am. No Latecomers. Adults only. 

**If you're interested in attending to multiple dates or the full 4-workshop series you can subscribe to each date or you can send an email to and we will manually register you to the the selected dates.
