LaTara Thompkins is the Founder and Artistic Director of N.I.A. Kids Center for the Performing Arts. LaTara founded this organization to address the concern and need to provide productive activities for youth in the community to help transform their free time from a threat to their safety and security into opportunities to participate in enriching, life-changing programs.
LaTara is the product of a family of singers, musicians, and performers. As with many singers, LaTara got her start in performing by singing with the church choir. Her involvement as a youth and young singer allowed opportunities that developed her as a leader and songstress. Her vocal training has allowed her opportunities to perform as a lead soloist and performer. She has recorded with local gospel artists and is a founding member of the local gospel group, “Devotion.” She continues to use her vocal talent to train and develop young singers.
As the Founder of N.I.A. Kids, LaTara continues to use her creativity to implement programs and opportunities for youth to get formal training in a variety of artistic disciplines. She oversees a strong, artistic team and has successfully produced several outstanding theatrical productions. Through the programs of N.I.A. Kids, LaTara continues to use her gifts to Nurture Inspire and Affirm all of the children that are blessed to cross her path.
