Hi there! My name is Jatara Newell and I can't wait to meet you! I have been dancing/performing consistently for 12 years and teaching dance lessons since October 2010. I love to make sure you as the student always feel safe, included, and to be proud of who YOU are as an individual! My teaching style is simple yet has a lot of personality, big movement, and technique, so come prepared! I also teach with a sense of humor to help students remember and to also make learning fun! My training first began at the church I attend (Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Ontario, Ca) where I learned liturgical/ praise dance. Through that experience I've learned how to express through several elements of performing arts such as drama, stage presence and of course movement! I've also trained under numerous dance teachers from Colony High School, Los Osos High School, Riverside Community College, and Cal State San Bernardino. I have an AA in Fine Arts, working towards Bachelors and Masters degree in dance. My experience in teaching dance includes but not limited to; Ballet, Jazz, Hip-Hop, African, Bollywoord, Modern, Contemporary, Liturgical, and Lyrical.
