Welcome, Natasha Thomas, to the Fish.
Natasha wears many caps. She is a North Dakota-born and -raised, board-certified music therapist, bellydancer, performer and instructor and prime mover for promoting challenging conversations and activism in her local community.
You could say Natasha contains more energy than the Bakken Oil Boom. She’s quick to smile and her passion about people is contagious.
By day, she teaches at the University of North Dakota in its Music Department and manages a downtown Grand Forks studio with the Lovely Dozen, a local Middle Eastern dance troupe.
By night, she performs music, theater and dance and plots different ways to bring people together and make them think about the arts, cultural sensitivity and the unique and valuable roles each of us has to play in the universe.
Her ultimate goal? To see all of humanity celebrating — and not just tolerating — all the diversity life has to offer us. Natasha lives in Grand Forks with her husband, Bernie, and a very cantankerous cat named Walter.
