About Tash: Natasha “Tash" Jean-Bart was born in 1971 in Montreal, Canada, and has been dancing professionally for 34 years. A member of the renowned Montreal Canadian breaking crew Flow Rock since 1998, her love and dedication to learning the street dance styles led her to search and learn from the creators and pioneers of the street dance culture internationally.
In 2005, Tash was nominated Head Judge of Hip Hop International (HHI) street dance competition, a position she held for six years. That same year she also landed the lead role of “Lady Madonna” in the acclaimed production of The Beatles “LOVE” by Cirque Du Soleil at the MGM Mirage in Las Vegas. In 2006, she was invited by the late Greg « Campbellock Jr » Pope and Frank « Sundance » Sams to contribute to the growth of the Elite Locking Camp. The camp’s organization was passed down to her in 2014 as she re-branded it “Las Vegas Locking Camp”.
In 2011, she co-founded the Wättssoul company with her husband. For the past seven years, they have produced and sponsored multiple events. Tash is a connector and has created hundreds of opportunities for artists and companies alike. She now travels internationally to pass on the teachings she has accumulated throughout the years to a new generation of dancers. She is still studying and training with the pioneers and forever will be a student and supporter of the culture.
