Natasha Posey, a Georgia native, began her dance career performing with Augusta Ballet Company. She earned a BFA in dance from Point Park College in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She has since performed with Lynda Martha Dance Company (Chicago), Wisconsin Ballet Theatre (Green Bay), Ballet Madison and Danceworks Performance Company, and Catey Ott Dance Collective.
Natasha’s “day job” is teaching 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade at Fernwood Montessori School. She earned her teaching certification at UW-Madison, where she graduated with honors. Natasha then began integrating the arts into education with her project “Language Arts Learned through the Creative Arts.” As an artist-in-residence at Schenk Elementary School in Madison, Natasha taught classes that combined dance with reading, writing and arithmetic to the whole school. She has led teacher-training workshops through Very Special Arts-Wisconsin where educators are taught how to integrate movement with students of all abilities. Natasha also teaches the Milwaukee Ballet School’s summer dance camps.
