Sharon Tranell’s passion for dance began at a very young age with liturgical dance, along with a variety of dance classes from elementary to high school, and self-taught dance routines from popular music videos. From ballet, contemporary, African, jazz, ballroom, hip-hop, and more her choreography has always been inspired and infused by the many dance styles she’s learned over the years.
As a choreographer and instructor, Sharon Tranell has worked with public school programs, churches, theater productions, non-profits, and competitive dance teams to engage and inspire through her unique body of work.
Not only has dance been a significant part of her life, but musical theater became a simultaneous passion in her early teen years after seeing Audra McDonald in the Disney adaptation of Annie, as she was the first African-American musical theater actress Sharon Tranell saw that looked like her.
Musical theater actress turned playwright in her late twenties, Sharon Tranell has written and produced a number of theatrical performances and have since expanded her artistry to include creative directing and event production for various artistic events such as concerts, and variety shows throughout the Southeastern United States.
