Vanessa G. Philadelphia, PA

I began dancing at the age of six and trained throughout the country at some of the best schools including The Rock Center for Dance in Las Vegas and Broadway Dance Center in New York City. Locally I attended the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, where I trained under professors Wayne St. David and Shawn-Lamere Williams of Eleone Dance Theatre.

I started teaching and booked my first professional gig fifteen years ago and have been performing and sharing my experience with my students ever since. As a teacher I am passionate about proper technique and increasing the personal character of my students, but also about making class a fun,positive experience! I truly love what I do!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me and I cannot wait to work with you !

Ms. Tiffany taught the fifth graders at our school to ballroom dance through the "Dancing Classrooms" program. The children loved their lessons and they have a lot to show for them! Ms. Tiffany anticipated their questions before they asked them and was able to work with all of the students. We definitely recommend her to others!
