Born and raised in Los Angeles and New Orleans, Tricia was exposed to dance and music at an early age. She grew up in a family who worked with and were luminaries in the entertainment industry. She grew up around dance and music from as far she can remember from the age of 3 playing violin, dancing Zulu, Mapouka African dance styles and tap from and with her family. She later trained in tap, jazz, and ballet while continuing African traditional and African Diaspora dance styles.
