Deedra Newby

Jazz & Contemporary

Deedra Newby has recently moved from Indiana to Utah to be with her children and grandchildren. With that move, she brings years of experience which include: founding, directing, teaching and building a recreational dance program from three classes and 16 students to over 40 classes and 350 students; authoring narrations for her annual spring shows; establishing and coaching a high school dance team for 13 years and during that duration a number of state championships, state runner-up titles and two national championships; forming a community dance company; and judging for the IHSDTA (Indiana High School Dance Team Association). Deedra has had a passion for dance since age 4 and now her goal is to train dancers in technical excellence as well as instill within them the desire to dance from their hearts and souls. We are so lucky to have Deedra at eMotion!
