Guest Artist - Tara Lee Blight
Tara Lee Blight
Dance Performer and instructor choreographer
My work is inspired by a myriad of influences and experiences in traditional and contemporary dance techniques, music, art and multimedia. I believe that the beauty of dance is about creating movement to communicate and give space for connection and expression. I am continuously refining my craft by finding answers and presenting my work to audiences that are organic and authentic.
