I had a great time working with Tanya. She is engaging and creative, and her instruction was easy to follow. I am very much looking forward to my next lesson. I would highly recommend her to anyone new to and looking for instruction in dance.

Tanya has a special gift for teaching dance. She really understands all of the elements that go into a properly executed dance move, and more importantly, she really knows how to explain those elements in an approachable manner. I will definitely be purchasing additional lessons with Tanya.
