Tara Lynn Steele

My name is Tara Lynn Steele, and I was born and raised in Marietta,GA. I began dancing at 16months old, then singing not long after that. I attended the Cobb County Center for the Performing Arts and then double majored at The University of Alabama in Musical Theatre and Dance. After living in NYC for less than a month I met Jill Michalsky and Abby Marchesseault. We've been dancing together ever since. Creating art is important to all of us, but more important is creating art with people that push us, support us, and make us smile (plus give warm hugs).  We are excited to share some of our work at Newburgh Illuminated.
