Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
Beyond the Barre
On this week’s episode, recorded April 21st 2020, we are pleased to welcome Tamisha Guy. Tamisha is a native of Trinidad and Tobago, and came with her family to the United States when she was eight years old. She was named one of Dance Europe’s Best Dancers of the Year in 2017, was featured in the segment “Spotlight on Success” in Dance Informa Magazine, and in 2016 she made Dance Magazine’ Top 25 To Watch list as well as winning the 2016 Princess Grace Award.
Tamisha has danced for the Martha Graham Dance Company and is currently a member of Kyle Abraham’s company Abraham In Motion. She is one of the most exciting, acclaimed contemporary dancers working today and we are so excited to have her on the show to talk about:
- Why she took a gap year before going to SUNY Purchase (and how she used her time away from dance)
- The importance of managing your personal finances and not getting bogged down by the “starving artist mentality”
- The joys of collaborating with choreographers to create meaningful, fulfilling work
