Linette Doherty


An accomplished performer, Linette was the lead in the film One Heart Broken Into Song, and worked with tap legends Savion Glover and the late Gregory Hines, playing “Elaine” opposite Gregory Hines in Bojangles. Linette played a gossipy church lady in Kim’s Convenience, and was featured in the Aaron Sorkin film Molly’s Game, Mary Kills People, Murdoch Mysteries, and Blue Hill Ave, an award winner at the Acapulco Black Film Festival. She is a talented and versatile performer who has performed on film and television; on stage; on the radio – notably as the lead in the CBC Radio production of Rush Home Road; and on the Original Cast Recording of We Will Not Forget. Her dance background is equally diverse – from ballet, modern, lyrical, and contemporary, to hip hop, jazz, tap, and West African styles.

Linette choreographed, directed, produced, and danced in Metro, which premiered at Zoofest in Montréal and was a top 10 pick in the Montréal Gazette. It went on to enjoy a successful run at the Toronto Fringe Festival, earning praise from NOW Magazine, The Toronto Star, and others for its “talented, diverse cast”, and making “a big impact”, while critical acclaim for Linette’s choreography notes she “seamlessly combines ballet, jazz, hip hop, tap and well, everything”. She has directed, choreographed, and produced well received productions of Newsies, Beauty And The Beast, Mary Poppins, and Wizard Of Oz. Linette was the choreographer for After Hours (CTV); toured with Ballet Creole and Kalimba Kalimba; and performed at the Charlottetown Festival.

In 2004, she opened The S.P.A.C.E., where children and adults learn from industry professionals in a warm, supportive atmosphere. Linette encourages her students to develop strong technique, performance skills, and a genuine love for the arts. Students sometimes recognize her as “Dana”, the choreographer and dance teacher in Disney’s Cheetah Girls movie.
