TAJA RILEY  For the frist time we welcome Taja to Diambra, and we are so excited!

Born in New Rochelle, NY and raised in Virginia Beach, VA, Taja trained at Denise Wall’s Dance Energy and at age 15, won the NYCDA National Teen Outstanding Dancer title which made her an overnight viral youtube sensation. She moved out to LA at the age of 16 to pursue her professional career in entertainment.(Stage Performances)Taja has toured with Recording Artists Janet Jackson, Chris Brown, Ne-Yo, Nicole Scherzinger and has done work, appearances, and performances with N.E.R.D, Pink, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Brandy, Diddy, Pitbull, 50 Cent, Keke Palmer, Omarion, Justin Bieber, Missy Elliott, and Kanye West just to name a few.(TV/Film Performances) You can find Taja on TV or Film including Tyler Perry’s movie “For Colored Girls”, “Happy Feet 2”, “Glee”, “Sherlock Gnomes”, “The X-Factor USA”, and as a TV personality for Oxygen’s “All the Right Moves”. she has also had guest appearances on the popular reality series ” Love + Hip Hop”. (Choreography)For choreography credits, you can see Taja’s  Assistant Choreography and Choreography work on Britney Spears (Femme Fatale Tour), Demi Lovato (Skyscraper Tour), the Soul Train awards performance honoring a tribute to the legendary TEDDY RILEY, Beyoncé (Mrs. Carter Tour), N.E.R.D “NO ONE EVER REALLY DIES” Project, and Creative Direction as well as choreography for the Amsterdam TV Show ”Dance Dance Dance” (Season 1).

Taja is trained technically in the styles Ballet , Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, Modern, African, Hip-Hop, and Ballroom, but of course features her class around her training in Hip-hop/ Commercial Dance. Her 90min class contains a stretch and warm-up involving isolations, conditioning, and a little bit of grooving to help get the body geared up for choreography. Her choreography process is driven by the music and usually involves the marriage of musicality, and dynamic changes in texture of her movement, while igniting the performance quality in her students. Currently, she is gearing her new choreography works and classes towards helping this generation tap into their inner artist, ”getting the gig” scenarios, equipping them with the knowledge, and transforming who they are within, as images of art. Aside from her combinations, Taja’s most effective and important part of class is her inspirational speaking. Motivating the students not only through moves, but in relation to life is what pushes her students, and what ultimately helps her connect and share her joy for performing.
