Jacinte Armstrong is a Halifax-based dance artist who has worked with many collaborators locally and across Canada. Receiving her early training at Halifax Dance, she went on to study at Dalhousie University and at the New World School of the Arts in Miami, FL.

Jacinte is the Artistic Director of Kinetic Studio, and performs regularly with Mocean Dance, SiNS (Sometimes in Nova Scotia) dance, independently, and in her own work.

She has worked with many choreographers, including Cory Bowles, Sara Coffin, Susanne Chui, Veronique MacKenzie, Lisa Phinney, Tedd Robinson, Serge Bennathan, Denise Fujiwara and more.

She is the two-time recipient of the Diane Moore Creation Scholarship awarded by Live Art Dance Productions, and a 2014 Dora Award nominee for best ensemble performance in Tedd Robinson’s Canvas 5x5, along with the cast from Mocean Dance.
