Tara began her dance career with The National Ballet of Canada after graduating from the National Ballet School. She then danced for The Alberta Ballet and was a celebrated Principal dancer for Canada’s Ballet Jorgen for 16 years. Bengt Jörgen created many lead roles in full length ballets for Tara including Romeo and Juliet, Cinderella, Anastasia, Coppelia, and The Nutcracker. She had the opportunity to guest perform internationally with The Hong Kong Ballet, The Ohio Ballet, Banff Festival Ballet and The Miami Hispanic International Ballet Festival. She has worked with many of Canada’s most sought after choreographers including Gioconda Barbuto, Roberto Campanella, Allison Cummings, Robert Desrosiers, Robert Glumbek, Allen Kaeja, Karen Kaeja, Malgorzata Nowacka-May, Crystal Pite, Kathleen Rea, and Wen
Wei Wang.

​Tara was featured in Michael Greyeyes short dance film ‘Seven Seconds’ and the award winning dance film ‘Old Country’ by Allen Kaeja. Since moving to Kitchener and having her second child, Tara has been teaching and coaching young dancers, choreographing, and performing as a freelance artist. Tara is an Associate Artist with Pat The Dog Theatre Creation where she has launched a professional development movement creation workshop. 


​In November 2021 Tara established Dust and Soul Dance Projects, a contemporary dance company with the mandate of bringing professional and original contemporary dance to the Waterloo Region along with community movement based workshops. To date Tara has brought work by Allen and Karen Kaeja, Nickeshia Garrick, Aria Evans, Allison Cummings, and David Earle. Tara’s latest work “IT Falls With The Rain” will make its Premiere in the 2025/ 2026 season. The goal is to develop a dance ecosystem for the Waterloo Region as an essential part of the local arts scene.
