Tara Roberts


Hi I’m Tara! I’m an avid enthusiast of dance and performance arts. I started my dance journey at the age of 3 at the Gwynedd School of Dance, North Wales. Growing up, I continued my dance training at Barton’s Dance and Drama Academy where I excelled in a range of dance forms such as ballet, tap, modern, disco, hip-hop, jazz and national – achieving ISTD from merit to distinction. I developed my experience as a teaching assistant for two years. During my time at Barton’s, I was fortunate to perform to an audience at venues such as Her Majesty’s Theatre, Sadler’s Wells and the Royal Albert Hall in London, enhancing my stage performance skills and artistic dance practices.
At the age of 16, I studied performance arts (QCF) attaining a double grade merit and advance skills training certificate. I was given the pleasure of performing as a leading role (as Iris) in the musical ‘Fame’ and a production of ‘Our House’ as a dancer.
In 2017, I enrolled at Kingston University school of Art, earning a degree in BA Dance (Hons). I was given a high quality standard of education and competed with the Kingston University Dance Society as a proud member on the committee – taking on the team to win many titles and trophies. It was here that I developed an interest in Latin dance, to add to my dance portfolio. I engaged in many dance classes with influential dancers in the industry.
