Tara Wilson is a dancer, choreographer, and teacher. Trained first as a contemporary dancer, Tara holds a degree in dance from the University of Calgary. For the past 15 years she has also focused on Hip Hop dance and has become an important part of the hip hop community in Calgary. She has traveled throughout the United States and Europe in order to continue to develop her skills and hone her craft both as a dance artist and choreographer. Recently Tara has presented work for the Alberta Dance Festival, W & M Dance Theater, University of Calgary and will be part of Decidedly Jazz Danceworks’ upcoming season. Of interest to Tara is the interplay between contemporary approaches to dance creation fused with Hip Hop aesthetics. Her work is inspired by the many influences she has acquired throughout her dance practice: from Contemporary to Hip Hop, Breaking, Popping, and Locking. As a co-owner and creative director of Pulse Studios, Tara is excited to share her passion for Hip Hop and to contribute to the cultural landscape of Calgary’s dance scene.
