About Nya Anderson


I AM READY 2 WORK!!! IM DEDICATED TO MY ART AND I WANT THIS AS BAD AS YOU WANT IT, LET'S DO BUSINESS!!!!!!!!!

Born In Gary Indiana, home of the Jackson 5 and later moving to Minneapolis, the home of the music legend Prince, Nya Anderson had the best of both worlds. Nya has been dancing and singing since the age of 4. It all started with her dad and mom, sacrificing to send her to a school of the performing arts.

Nya attended Emerson Visual Performing Arts where she gained majority of her experience. At Emerson, Nya studied Dance and Dance History extensively. Also she performed at several venues such as: Chi-Town Jazz Dance Company, Perdue University, Rennsalaer College, Radisson Hotel, and the Chicago Mayor's Banquet, among other events. Nya had the opportunity to choreograph multiple dance numbers with her instructors Randy Grass and Michal Davis. This work led to Nya being nominated for Emerson's Best Student in Dance for three consecutive years, and a scholarship for Twin Lake Fine Arts Camp, where she studied ballet, jazz and modern diligently. She was inducted into the International Thespian Society Troupe # 1492. Her performances included roles in several musicals such as: The Wiz, Bye Bye Birdie, West Side Story and The Music Man.

Nya performed at Disney World and Busch Gardens, in the summer of 1993 as a member of the Young American Dance Troupe/Jeanie's Dance Academy. With the Young Americans she competed in the Starlight Competition in Chicago, and took home FIRST PLACE in three separate categories (Solo Jazz Category, Group Category and the Duet category) Nya had the opportunity to teach at a Mardi Gras workshop for dancers in Wisconsin, she has been noted for her work ever since. Nya also studied Theatre and Vocal both at Emerson and with the Young Americans.

Subsequently, Nya moved to Minneapolis to further pursue her dance career. While being a full time student and staff writer for the college newspaper, she still was performing throughout Minneapolis. Nya auditioned for Zenon Dance Company Scholarship program and was granted the scholarship. She later was introduced to Baraka De Soleil and joined his company, D'Underbelly. One of her performances was a special piece entitled "The Josephine Baker Story in Paris." This performance inspired her to study the art of acting more extensively.

In the later half of 2000 Nya moved to Atlanta, the urban entertainment mecca of the south. In 2001 she became an instructor for the Urban Dance Academy. Performing with the new TV show "BStreet Live", Nya continues to advance her abilities in dance with the hip-hop dance troupe, “Culture Shock”. She is also studying acting under Gaylord Parson (HFI Alumni) in the Celebrity Actors Studio. Nya has made several model appearances with various photographers. She has made appearances in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, a Test Shoot for Black Men Magazine and others.

In addition to her extensive experience in live perfomances, she has gone into motion picture development as a producer with CMC Entertainment. She writes and sings between Minneapolis and Atlanta. As of July 2003 Nya is now a dancer for R&B solo artist LaTocha Scott (formally from the group Xscape), now signed to raw deal records (www.rawdealrecords.com) and rock city entertainment. Nya will be touring with LaTocha for eight months.

Nya is very excited and is dedicated to the entertainment field. Nya plans on perfecting her craft in dance, acting, singing and modeling.
