Cierra is known for being a quirky, musical, and emotional dancer. As a child she was never able to stop moving and became obsessed with Blues dancing after discovering it. Her love of blues comes from her relationship with her grandfather and the reconnection Cierra feels to her heritage while dancing the blues. Cierra loves to bring that history, culture and context, into her own and her student’s dancing by challenging their dancing in ways beyond just movement. Cierra has only recently started competing and has been placing in open competitions and is excited to be a new competitor in the All-star Division. Cierra recently took first at Mile High Blues in the all- star Lead and follow contest. She also organizes Denver’s weekly local venue called Tuesday Blues and co-organizes Denver’s monthly event called Toska Blues Dance. You can read Cierra’s thoughts on the Toska blues blog. Cierra is excited to be sharing her passion for dance and culture with the community.
