Born Tara Witherspoon Bianco on July 11, 1995, in Hilton Head Island, SC. Having a passion for entertaining since she was a little girl, Tara loves equally recording and performing her songs, dancing, appearing in film and tv productions and pursuing musical theatre.
Tara began dancing at the age of three. She trained in many styles of dance beginning with ballet, tap and jazz and competed regionally across the southeast. With natural rhythm and abilities, hip-hop became her favorite. Tara auditioned and became a dancer for the blocSouth professional dance agency Atlanta. She also teaches a variety of styles of dance to children at the Boys and Girls Club on Hilton Head Island. She loves being a role model to kids and developing them as dancers.
At the age of eight, Tara auditioned for the musical “Annie” and fell in love with musical theatre. She began training with her normal determination in acting and voice to pursue her goals. Tara has performed in numerous productions with her stage career. Among her favorites are, “Into the Woods,” “Peter Pan,” and “Hairspray.” For “Into the Woods,” the character of Little Red Riding Hood suited her well. Her nickname with her friends has always been “Lil’ Red.” Playing the lead role of Peter Pan in “Peter Pan” was definitely a highlight for Tara. She found she had a love for flying and aerial ballet throughout the performances. Trained by ZFX, the same flying company that trained Cathy Rigby for her national tour, she was honored to have been chosen by them as one of their top fliers. Most recently, she auditioned and played her dream role of Penny Lou Pingleton in “Hairspray.” Recently, Tara was in the cast of “Dreamgirls” where she plays the role of the “Sweethearts.”
At age 11, Tara found out she was interested in the film and TV world. Her first production was the sit-com pilot “LifeCoach.” After filming her first music video for Lil’ Chuckee, filmed by Star Maxx Media and produced by Mr. 23, Tara was cast as “Chelsea” in the feature film “Five Days in the A.” She found that she had a passion that she wanted to pursue and continued with her filmwork. She currently is cast as a lead in “Crybaby Bridge” which will soon begin production.
When she was filming the music video “Best Friends Forever, The Music Video” in Atlanta she was asked to record for their soundtrack. She enjoyed that experience. Later in school, she discovered that she liked to write poetry. She had a friend that was a rapper, and he encouraged her to write her own lyrics and sing a combination of their songs. She was captured from then on. Through Tucker Model and Talent on Hilton Head Island she was given the opportunity to audition for Jeff Gordon, LA Talent Manager. Tara received an invitation to record her first single with Bryan Todd of Bryan Todd Productions Bryan Todd’s credits include Ashley Tisdale, Big Time Rush, Austin and Ally and more. She has made two trips to LA and recorded three songs written by Bryan Todd, one cover song and a music video. Her first single, “So in Love,” is available on iTunes. The additional songs and music video will be out soon! She is honored to work with both Bryan Todd and Jeff Gordon!
Tara appreciates the support of her Mom and Dad, loves spending time with her puppy, Terrie, and enjoys watching the Atlanta Falcons play NFL football!
