Lori Henry began Polynesian dancing when she was two years old. Although she also played ringette for many years, she ended up choosing to pursue dancing and trained in ballet, tap, jazz, modern, hip hop and contemporary styles. After high school, she attended Gastown Actors Studio in Vancouver to study theatre acting, and spent many years as a film actor.
After travelling solo to Paris, Lori caught the travel bug and began building on her growing number of writing assignments to embark on a career as a travel writer. Her work has been published in Readers Digest Canada, WestJet’s up! magazine, Western Living, British Columbia magazine, Spa, FLARE, VIA destinations, West, VIA magazine (an AAA publication), USAToday.com, Gateways (Carnival Cruise Lines), among many others. She has also contributed to Fodor’s Nova Scotia & Atlantic Canada, Explorer Publishing’s Vancouver Explorer and Sasquatch Books’ Best Places Northwest guidebooks.
Dancing Through History: In Search of the Stories that Define Canada is the first book in a series about indigenous dance and cultures around the world.
