Owen Tabaka Biography

Who can say that they have found their way to Sesame Street? Owen can. Owen's love of dance and his charming personality has landed him that very opportunity and he can't wait to share it with everyone. His natural ability and rhythm is enhanced by his level of training for his age. Owen's dance styles run the gambit but tap is his favorite. When asked to perform in This Way To Broadway, Live! Jingle Jam - an off-Broadway concert/workshop series featuring Broadway veteran and children's coach Thommie Retter ('Billy Elliot') he was so excited. He loves the arts but also plays soccer and lacrosse, finds the time to work on his acrobatics (aerial, round off back handspring, back tuck and front walkover); enjoys swimming, basketball, golf, tennis and is great with impressions (he's a funny kid!). Owen was a member of the Washington Wizards Wiz kid - Hip Hop Children's performance dance team, is an award winning dancer in The World Dance Pageant (Petite World Champion) and has been tapped (excuse the pun) as the assistant to the teachers. He has also participated in The Jam Youth Project which is a Pre-professional tap-dance Company in Washington D.C., won awards in dance as a soloist, partner work and group numbers.
