2022, Dance, BFA
My name is Carmella Taitt and I am from Brooklyn, New York. I began dancing at age 3, at the Restoration Youth Arts Academy. In 2014 I joined the Dance Theatre of Harlem School as a scholarship student, and trained under Robert Garland and Augustus van Heerden. From 2015-2018 I was a student at the Professional Performing Arts High School where I was a student at the Alvin Ailey School. In addition, from 2016-2018 I joined the Jr. Division department of The Alvin Ailey School as a scholarship student. While attending the Ailey School, I trained under Guillermo Asca, Cassandra Phipher, Shay Bland, Judine Summerville, Tadej Brdnik, Freddie Moore and others. I’ve previously attended summer intensives including the Earl Mosely Institute of the Arts(15’ 16’ 17) and the Alvin Ailey SI ( 18’).
