A native of Richmond, Virginia and a graduate of Florida State University, received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in dance. Dance has been an integral part of her life since the age of 4. However, being an overall entertainer has always been her dream' Her mother decided to put her in ballet, when she noticed that her daughter was always dancing; grocery stores, day care, at home, every canvas was her stage. NaTonia's core training includes the Richmond Ballet (nine years), Henrico High School's Center for the Arts (4 years), and finally the Florida State University (4.5 years). Through these enrichments, she has danced various roles in Richmond Ballet's "The Nutcracker", played the alto saxophone, was a varsity cheerleader, participated in show choir, acted, was the recipient of The Brad Boynton Award for Excellence in the Arts, became the Artistic Director of Phlava Dance Company, danced in numerous shows, as well as studied with various artists from Ron Brown to Suzanne Farrell.
