SheROCKS Event, Showcased Artist, Dance

Nya is a 15 year old up and coming dancer from Washington, DC. She has been dancing since the age of three and plans to be a professional dancer. Currently she is a sophomore training at The Baltimore School for the Arts and is a social media influencer for the major dance brand Bloch. At a very young age Nya had the honor of performing in Debbie Allen’s Brothers of the Knight production and since then has danced with the Washington Ballet, American Ballet Theater, Collage Dance Collective, and most recently with the Atlanta Ballet to name a few. Nya has recently started performing in film and can be seen in the Queen Latifah Collective Short “Ballet After Dark” and the soon to be released short “United We Heal” In her spare time she likes write poetry and give back to the youth in her community by helping raise funds and awareness for Sickle Cell, Cancer, and Anti-Bulling Campaigns. She also spends time volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House and volunteers with local elementary schools to introduce kids to ballet and encourage them to follow their dreams no matter where you come from. She knows first-hand the difficulties of trying to accomplish your dreams coming from the inner city and fighting to be a part of a dance world where she will be a minority. She wants to be an inspiration to others and show them that with hard work, determination, and faith you can accomplish anything.
