Raised in Winnipeg, Farrah Fernando began dancing at the age of 9 and has been in love with the art form ever since. Her training includes a myriad of dance forms including jazz, ballet, hip hop, modern, ballroom and latin dance. In 2007, after completing a Bachelors degree in Engineering, she decided to follow her heart and pursue a career in dance. She enrolled in the Senior Professional Program at the School of Contemporary Dancers. In May 2010 she graduated from the program while also obtaining a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree at the University of Winnipeg in dance. Professionally she has worked with Winnipeg choreographers, Paula Blair, Gaile Petursson-Hiley, Stephanie Ballard and Odette Heyn-Penner. In March 2010 Farrah had the opportunity to work with Casimiro Nhussi with his African-contemporary dance company NAfro Dance, performing in their production “Seduction of Hope”. She returned the next season as the company’s apprentice. Moving to Toronto in 2011, she was naturally drawn to the movement and style of COBA and is enjoying her experience as a member of the ensemble.
