Born in Washington, D.C., with her family hailing from Haiti, Tara started performing at the age of 3 in Lome, Togo. She fell in love with the costumes, the lights and of course the exhilaration as soon as she hit the stage. When she moved back to the United States, she trained at various renowned institutions, including: Jones/Haywood Youth Ballet, Dance Institute of Washington, Ailey School, Hubbard Street Dance. Internationally, Tara trained at Rosella Hightower in France, Danish Dance Theater in Denmark, and Escola de Dança da Bahia in Brazil. After receiving her Bachelors of Arts from the University of Pennsylvania, she had the opportunity to perform works by Robert Battle, Paul Taylor, Francesca Harper, vocal artist Pharrell Williams, among others. Along her journey, she has also been able to expand her artistry to include singing and acting.
