Talara Ruth, Dance Director, is delighted to be celebrating 50 years of dance! Teaching at CATS since 2016 she allows artistic excellence to thrive in a supportive environment. Talara began dancing as a toddler in her native NYC and performed professionally since the age of six in musical theater, modern dance, acrobatics and contemporary ballet. She trained as a teacher for many years with the late Nenette Charisse and the legendary David Howard. Talara has a degree in performing arts and dance performance and education from NYU Tisch and Empire State. She has been teaching dance for five decades, including upstate New York and Southern California where she owned her own studios. Her past students perform all over the world from contemporary ballet (Alvin Ailey, Aspen Ballet, Boston Ballet, Colorado ballet, Complexions, Royal Danish, to name but a few) and on Broadway (42nd St., Tap Dog, Beauty and the Beast). Talara's greatest joy and life work is helping children to expand their creativity and physical acumen through the joy of dance. Go to  or @dancetruth
