“ You are very talented Teya. Keep pursuing your dreams!”
– Ruby Dee, Actress/Activist

Teya Wild is a Canadian born dancer, choreographer and creative who now resides in Los Angeles, California. She began working professionally as a child, so she is no stranger to the limelight. As a kid, Teya began her career as an actor, and appeared in the movies Head Over Heels and A Storm In Summer; in TV shows Sesame Street and The Outer Limits; and in commercials for Radio Disney, Kohl’s, AmSouth, Kodak and Crystal Light.

Despite the potential with her acting career, there was no denying Teya’s passion for dance. Teya spent countless years training in a wide variety of styles, primarily in hip hop and its foundations in popping, house, locking, and breaking, as well as jazz, lyrical, theatre, contemporary, tap and ballet, where she is an R.A.D. honours graduate. Teya’s training and outgoing personality led her to one of Canadian TV’s most notable stages when she was chosen as a contestant and finalist for Season 4 of So You Think You Can Dance. This platform helped propel many Canadian dancers to work in the U.S. and Teya took the opportunity to move to Los Angeles after acquiring her 0-1 visa.

For many years, Teya has been building strong credits in both the Canadian and American dance community. TV credits include The Voice and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist (NBC), Riverdale and DC’S Legends Of Tomorrow (CW), The Twilight Zone (Paramount+), as well as The American Music Awards, The Grammy Awards, and The BET Awards. Film credits include Step Up 5, Christmas Chronicles 2, Nickelodeon’s Spectacular!, Center Stage 2: Turn It Up, as well as numerous films for Disney: Sneakerella, Descendants 2 & 3, Freaky Friday, and Zapped. Teya has also toured with US recording artist Hailee Steinfeld, and danced alongside Taylor Swift. Over the years, Teya has also been fortunate enough to work closely with world renowned choreographers Kenny Ortega, Jamal Sims, Luther Brown, Christopher Scott, Aakomon Jones, Draico Johnson, Nappytabs, Fatima Robinson, Tony Testa, and Keone & Mari.

Teya has most recently moved into the role of choreographer where she continues to thrive as a leader and creator. Recent credits include Disney’s Zombies 3 (Assistant Choreographer), The Emmy Awards (Assistant Choreographer) and movement coaching for actor/singer Laura Morano. She also worked as choreographer on the Netflix film Work It, and created movement for Carnival Cruise Lines.

While pursuing her own dreams and goals, Teya has always believed in the importance of sharing and giving back. Teya has countless years of experience teaching and choreographing high-ranked competitive dancers and dance teams from all over the world, as well as judging and adjudicating for many dance competitions across Canada & America. She has also toured all over the world mentoring and educating dancers in the history of hip hop dance. She is continuously pushing her dancers to new heights and uses her experience to not only help mold a well-rounded performer, but guide the next generation of dance artists to longstanding careers. Because of Teya’s hard work, tenacity and versatility, what started as a few fun jobs as a kid has now become a highly impressive resume. As she continues to work between Canada and the United States, Teya hopes to inspire people to never give up on their dreams and to never stop believing in themselves.
