Natasha Michelle Diamond- Walker, born in Granada Hills, California, was always very insightful. When asked as a little girl what she wanted to be when she grew up she would say, a famous actress, a singer like Madonna, and a big sister. Her mother instinctively began paving the road for her success: placing Natasha into dance, drama, and singing classes. It wasn't long before Natasha was center stage in school plays, dance concerts, and choir performances. She found dramatic expression in all things. But, at the age of 10, after seeing the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in Los Angeles she decided to focus on becoming a professional dancer.
Seven years, and, many dance classes later, with the support and guidance of influential L.A. based dance mentors Leah Bass-Baylis, Ka-Ron Brown-Lehman, Karen McDonald, and Don Martin she accepted an invitation to join the Fordham University/ Alvin Ailey School Class of 2003. At 17, Natasha was on her way from the San Fernando Valley to New York City, ready, to earn her BFA degree.
Now, as a company dancer, Natasha has performed the works of Lester Horton, Martha Graham, Alvin Ailey, William Forsythe, Larry Keigwin, Richard Move, Andonis Foniadakis, and Nacho Duato, to name a few. Her commercial work as a model who dances includes collaboration with Bust Magazine, Dance Spirit Magazine, Lakes and Stars, Only Hearts, Eighteenth, the YouTube Awards, Brandcast for Google, Peter Arnell's GNC "Respect Yourself Campaign", and Hermes. And as an upcoming actress, Natasha enjoys taking classes at the Susan Batson Studio in Times Square, NYC.
Natasha is a working dancer, model, and actress. She loves her work and is deeply grateful for her life!
