She later enhanced her movement quality in hip hop at places like The Hip Hop Dance Conservatory (NYC), and evenutally, Full Circle Productions (NYC). Her talent and passion for hip hop dance has allowed her to grace the stages of Lincoln Center(NYC), The New Victory Theater (NYC), The Green Space at the Shakespeare Theater Festival (Oregon), in Caguas, Puerto Rico, and the Laguardia Performing Arts Center (NYC), and teach dance workshops worldwide. She is also amongst 8 other choreographers chosen for the 2015 Mare Nostrum Elements: Emerging Choreographers Series.
In the summer of 2015, Niara became one of two other artists chosen to travel to Senegal, West Africa, where she assisted in the production of Sunu Thiossane's 3rd annual showcase, performed at the Grand National Theater in Dakar.
