Inertia DeWitt is a performance-artist, educator, and budding therapist based in California. Her artwork explores issues of identity, spirituality, and the intersections of American pop-culture and politics. Her current project, AMERICAN WONDER, is a multidisciplinary performance-art protest that asks what it means to be a 21st century American. She earned an MFA in Dance from Arizona State University, where her studies focused on creative practices, somatics, and performance. She believes that when you activate creativity, you awaken spirit and encourage the body's natural propensity to heal itself. Inertia is in pursuit of an MA in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, in an effort to fortify her passion for art and healing.

As a hybrid outlet for the artistic work and the educational outreach of Charlie Maybee, The T.A.P. strives to bring tap dance back to relevance in the current, progressive dance world by taking tap dance to a new level of choreographic and pedagogical intent. By fusing the rhythmic intricacies of tap dance with progressive musical theory and post-modern choreographic techniques, we present artwork which challenges contemporary audience’s perception of tap dance and allow tap works to speak for themselves on an emotional, mental, and physical level.
