Minaqua McPherson

Minaqua McPherson grew up dancing in the Bay Area and got her first pre-professional glimpse of dance while apprenticing for NUBA Dance Theater under the direction of Evelyn Thomas. She graduated from UCSD with a dance major in 2007 and joined the staff of the San Diego Dance Theater where she teaches adult classes, as well as those in the Education and Outreach Programs. Part Menominee Indian, she was raised around Native American dances, and has served as a consultant for third grade dance curriculum and VAPA standards. In 2008, she was invited into the company of dancers that comprises the San Diego Dance Theater and made her debut at “Cabaret Dances” in January 2009.
