Alaya Oni – One of the oldest memories I have is from my first dance class. I was 2, the Lion King was all the rage and skipping to the music was a fun and notable lesson. I never thought that I would stick with dance or art for so long but my relationship with creation and artistic expression grew to become one of the biggest influences in my life and my favorite pastime.
Flashing forward to the future. In 2013 I graduated from Northwestern University with degrees in Dance and Art Theory & Practice. I lived in Chicago and was fortunate enough to become a scholarship and work study student at Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, under the beloved Claire Bataille. During my years in Chicago, I was able to work with and learn from many local artistand companies.
Currently I live in Los Angeles, as a freelance dancer, photographer, and general jack of all trades. I consider myself an independent multidisciplinary artist, who is fascinated by expression in its variety of mediums. Creation is a part of my world and I love to share it whenever the opportunity arises.
