Adela Azses was born in Mexico City, Mexico. She fell in love with tap dance while studying abroad in NYC, and decided to move there to foster her dance career. She decided to study at Broadway Dance Center (BDC), where she engaged in a forceful dance journey, joining the international program for a year, while simultaneously training at Steps on Broadway and American Tap Dance Foundation (ATDF). 

Due to her work ethic and dedication, she was soon recognized as a longed for assistant in the tap field. Her ability allowed her to work with renowned professional choreographers such as NYU Steinhardt Choreographer Jill Kenney, and  Tap Uganda Director Pamela Vlach. 

She has performed in different renowned venues and events internationally; she performed as a soloist at the Federal Academy of Ballet in Malaysia, for the Kuala Lumpur Tap Festival, as well as for the Tap Fest Guadalajara, at the Teatro Moncayo PALCCO in Mexico. 

In New York she has performed at Symphony Space for the Broadway Dance Center Showcase, The Harkness Dance Center for the 92 street Y Showcase,  The Creative Cultural Center for ATDF’S Somethings Afoot, Steps on Broadway for the Industry Showcase, and The Center at West Park for NYC Choreographers Forum.

 

Additionally, her work as a choreographer has met the stages of Melrose Ballroom for RAW Artists and Long Island Public Library for A Taste of Tap. 

After assisting a lot of her teachers and mentors, she realized teaching was one of her biggest passions and she completed the Tap Teachers Lounge Training Program, and the Roots, Rhythm, Race & Dance Seminar, both created by Karida Griffith.

 

She's currently on faculty at Flashdance Studio, where she teaches a variety of recreational and competition classes, of all ages and levels.
