MORE ABOUT TAMISHA
As a professional performer, Tamisha A. Guy has garnered many years of experience. TAMISHA A. GUY, a native of Trinidad and Tobago, began her formal dance training at Ballet Tech, under the direction of Eliot Feld. Later she attended Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School, and SUNY Purchase College as a double major in dance and arts management. In 2016 Guy was selected as one of Dance Magazine' Top 25 to Watch and she also received the 2016 Princess Grace Award. She was featured in the segment “Spotlight on Success” in Dance Informa Magazine as well as the Caribbean Life newspaper, where she discussed her upbringing and the distinguished Princess Grace Award. In 2017, she was named one of the Best Dancer's of the Year by Dance Europe. In 2021, she received the 2022 Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise in Dance for her evocative and intuitive performance style that blends elements of contemporary, modern and narrative dance traditions, and for her commitment to furthering her own practice through instruction, collaboration, and mentorship. Tamisha currently dances with A.I.M, under Artistic Direction of Kyle Abraham and formerly an Adjunct Lecturer in Dance at SUNY Purchase, Western Washington University and Barnard College.
Tamisha A. Guy sees performance as not only a profession but also a lifelong passion that can be harnessed to make a meaningful difference. My hope is to be authentic and intentional in my work, to serve as a source of inspiration to other artists hoping to lead a career in the art form. Through authenticity I see a bridge that allows viewers to not only have an emotional or visceral response, but allows the opportunity and space for them to reflect on their own experiences. Being my most present and honest self on stage has not only transformed my performance but it helps me to think about my deeper purpose and contribution to the art form. I hope to pay it forward in my work as a dance artist, instructor and as I continue to tap into my other interests.
