LaTasha “Tasha” Barnes is an internationally acclaimed and awarded dancer, educator, coach and ambassador of culture from Richmond, VA - based in New York.

I know the remit of the show is to meet mostly musicians and DJs- but Tasha is so engaging to talk with about music, that it was an obvious ask for me. She thinks about music in a visceral and emotional way which is so nourishing to discuss. I hope that comes through in this episode.

LaTasha is globally celebrated for her musicality, athleticism, and joyful presence throughout the cultural traditions she bears, which include: House, Hip-Hop, Waacking, Jazz, and Lindy Hop. Her expansive artistic, competitive and performative skills have made her a frequent collaborator to Dorrance Dance, Singapore based Timbre Arts Group, Caleb Teicher & Co., Ephrat Asherie Dance and many international Jazz/Lindy Hop and Urban Arts festivals like LindyFest, ILHC, Summer Dance Forever, and Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival. In effort to further her service to her communities Tasha designed and received her Master's in Ethnochoreology, Black Studies and Performance Studies thru New York University Gallatin School to further community presence in cultural dance research, performance, preservation and pedagogy. In concert with these efforts she is also a part of the directing braintrust developing the ground-breaking stage production Swing 2020, set to premiere in New York (Joyce Theater) in August 2020. Accolades, endeavors and accomplishments aside, Tasha’s forever purpose is to inspire fellow artists and art enthusiasts to cultivate an authentic sense of self in their creative expressions and daily lives.

Guggenheim Virtual Commission Series,
