Choreographer: Sonya Tayeh
After graduating from Wayne State University, Sonya Tayeh moved to California to run a dance company where she developed her own style of jazz, combat jazz. She was later discovered by a talent agent and within three months signed as a jazz and contempororary choreographer with the television series So You Think You Can Dance.
After watching this video, should it be a surprise to anyone that in 2013 Ms Tayeh was nominated for an Emmy Award for her work on season nine.
Ms Tayeh has a way of allowing dance to be dance, extracting from this art form what it was meant to be. I hope you’ll like then share this video with others.
