Frequent Instructor Bios

Called “The first Grenadian woman on Broadway…” Oneika Phillips’ credits include the Tony award winning productions Spongebob Squarepants and FELA! The Musical. Other Broadway credits include Amazing Grace, and as assistant to the choreographer on the critically acclaimed, Violet. Prior, Oneika found her voice as Anita in the 50th Anniversary International Tour of Jerome Robbins’ West Side Story, nominated for The West End’s Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival, winning the Theatergoer’s Choice Award in the same category. She was also a cast member of the First and Second National/International tours of FELA!


Oneika is a former featured member of Abdel Salaam’s Forces of Nature Dance Theatre, where roots were laid for a professional career in Music Theatre. Other favorite theatre credits include Christopher Gattelli’s In Your Arms, a dance-based play, Tusk, a concert-theater experience that combines elements of film, puppetry, live music and theater, Jamaican writer Jermaine Rowe’s Children of the Blue Mountain and Leonora, directed by Antonio Minino, a Caribbean interpretation of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House.


Oneika’s newest onstage adventure is the revival of 1776, a musical that explores the founding of America, the writing of the Declaration of Independence and the flaws, contradictions and consequences of the document. The unconventional casting pushes the envelope of what diversity in casting can look like. A virtual workshop was completed early in the pandemic, the first of its kind for a Broadway bound production. Oneika considers herself an ambassador to her country and region and strives to be a voice for Caribbean representation in American Arts.
