Hi, there! My name is Tatiyana (RubyTerese on IG) and I can't wait to dance with you! I've been teaching since 2005 and have loved helping my students transform into better dancers. I've been trained in ballet, jazz, modern, hip hop and contemporary dance for 20+ years. In my lessons I focus on improving technique, flexibility, strength, choreography, overall confidence when dancing and much more depending on your personal needs. No matter what level you are, I am excited to work with you in a productive and fun way! Whatever your dance needs are, I am here to help. I look forward to meeting you soon!

I am responsible for teaching a structured method for learning advanced Hip Hop moves with high energy. Dancers also learn coordination, body control, strength and technical skills. I help my students build strength and improve cardiovascular endurance for stage performance. Four routines are choreographed per season and are performed at various competitions and showcases.

I've had dance lessons with Tatiyana and she is a super talented dancer/teacher! She caters to all dance levels and really makes sure you get the material/moves down. Not to mention she makes the lessons fun!

Tatiyana teaches a fun, unique, and dynamic Dance Fitness class. Her positive energy is contagious and will have you ready to sign up for the next session before the first one ends.
