18 Ingredients to Make Daddy

About the author

My name is Trashina Conner I am a 28 year old native from Saginaw, MI where I began dancing at a young age. My passion for dance developed through my life eventually leading me to Howard University where I attained my BFA in Theater Arts with a concentration in Dance in 2011.

Immediately after I moved to New York City where I currently reside. Since here I have had the immense pleasure of performing with Def Dance Jam Community (2011-2015). Mickey D. and Friends (2011-Current), Vashti Dance Theater (2015-Current). In 2014, I premiered a self- choreographed piece '3.26.06' as a solo artist with BalaSole Dance Company. I have worked with choreographers: Ronald K. Brown, Dianne McIntyre, Nathan Trice, Lisa Johnson-Willingham, Michael Leon Thomas, and others.

When I am not performing you can find me in a classroom, cafeteria, or music room teaching dance to the young scholars of NYC. Through jazz, contemporary, ballet, swing, sign infused dance, and improve I aim to bring discipline, communication skills, self-love, and a safe space for personal expression to my students.

In 2015, I began the process of writing and publishing my first children's book "18 Ingredients to Make Daddy” I used 18 because my father; first love passed when I was 18 years old. Each ingredient was what made him my “perfect” daddy. The book was released May 15, 2016. Will be available on Amazon, Kindle, Barnes & Nobles, and with other distributors in July of 2016. 

However can be purchased on my website now at www.trashinaconner.org/store
