Tara Iacobucci hails from Rhode Island, dancing since the age of two. A competitive dancer early on, she then transitioned into the ballet world in 1996, dancing with Festival Ballet of Rhode Island under the late Christine Hennessey.
Tara landed the role of Clara in their annual production of The Nutcracker two years later, and continued on to dance a wide variety of roles in The Nutcracker, Les Sylphides, Sleeping Beauty, Dracula, Swan Lake, Firebird, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. In 2001, Tara professionally joined the company under their new name, Festival Ballet Providence, under the direction of Mihailo Djuric.
She has performed original works from Colleen Cavanaugh, and has danced alongside Sasha Radetsky from ABT. Tara’s choreography has achieved many accolades on both the stage and in film.
She was asked to create a work for the Boston Contemporary Dance Festival in 2013, and has partnered up with William Wingfield (SYTYCD) and Monique Borromeo (Beyoncé) on a couple of film projects thus far. Tara had the pleasure of joining the cast of Season 4 SYTYCD (among others) on a new in-house dance convention, IV Real Mvmnt, this past year.
