Soul Thru' Sole is a dance company that encourages sisterhood, freedom and empowerment through movement.
Our tribe is made up of trained instructors and journey taught healers who lead each class in discussion, journaling and dance with the intention of pulling expression, power, and vulnerability from each student until they feel free on the floor.
Our main objective is to provide a space for women to heal, rejoice and celebrate who they are through music. We know dance to be liberating, therapeutic and very freeing so partnered with our 'Soul thru Sole' break through method, we believe the experience will be life changing for all women.
CEO & Creative Director of Classes and Events
Soul Thru Sole has been a long time dream of Tiffany 'Traye' Moore. Her love for dance, teaching, bringing people together & empowering women were the key ingredients to creating such a company. As a budding dancer in her childhood she spent countless hours practicing her craft beginning at the prestigious Dance Theater of Harlem where she acknowledged her passion for dance. Went onward to Uptown Dance Academy & then to Harlem Hospital Dance Leadership Program where she found her individuality in the art.
Training as a dancer in New York City, especially in Harlem has offered Tiffany a freedom of expression like no other. Learning the fundamental techniques such as as Ballet, Jazz & Modern created a great foundation but it wasn't until she was introduced to cultural & street styles that she found her place in dance. African dance, hip-hop, and urban burlesque were some styles that stood out to her.
Throughout the years Tiffany has trained to be an instructor of many dance types. She's taught children and peers since the age of 16; dance routines to cheer leading teams as well as movement coaching for school musicals and performances. Her proudest moments often come from teaching choreography and watching her students execute it instead of performing herself. In her teens she found a keen interest in feminine dance and movement, very sensual, expressive and alluring to the eyes of the audience. Artists such as Beyonce, Janet Jackson and Ciara are big influences on the type of dancing she wants her company to be known for.
With Soul thru Sole the goal is simple, help women find their freedom, their voice and sisterhood in dance.
"As long as they are comfortable with themselves & feel empowered during class I'm satisfied. I don't want my ladies to feel judged or pressured I want them to feel confident, almost as if they're not being taught but just practicing what they already know" -Traye
As the founder & creative director of all classes and events at Soul Thru Sole she only wants to bring her ladies the best instructors, class formula and events to create the most amazing experience possible.
