Testimonials

Sophia has really blossomed since starting at Body 2 Star dance school. Her coordination has improved and most of all - she loves it!

She has never been able to stick at any activity, but she loves her ballet and hip-hop and I love how her confidence has improved over the last year. Thank you Miss Tahnee! I can't wait to see how she further develops.

As a student of Tahnee’s from childhood through adulthood, I have had the pleasure of experiencing how dedicated and passionate she is towards teaching and her students. She consistently brings excitement and joy into the studio. Along with her classes being fun and entertaining, they are challenging, enticing students to push themselves to not only be better dancers but better people.

Due to the many years of training with Tahnee, I have experienced the range of ways she approaches classes to best suit her students. I have gained many life skills as a result of being not only one of her students but working alongside her as both a dancer and choreographer. It is always a pleasure learn from and work alongside Tahnee due to her positive outlook on life.

Tahnee Marotta is a highly regarded dance teacher and wonderful role model for my daughter Maya who is 8 years old. In addition to providing exceptional dance training in both classes and private lessons, Tahnee has also taught Maya commitment, discipline and enthusiasm for learning. Her expertise, energy and teaching style has been instrumental in assisting with my daughter's dance development and her self confidence.

Tahnee's strong focus on dance technique, body strengthening and physiology has been incredibly beneficial for Maya's dance training and growth. Her commitment to ensuring dancers are properly trained is commendable and this is evident in my daughter's progression and her achievements. Tahnee provides a professional environment while offering an engaging, supportive and enjoyable atmosphere for learning. The result for Maya has been a love of learning and the motivation to continue dancing and to develop and excel.

Tahnee's ability to relate well with children and to provide a nurturing and positive environment, has enabled Maya to grow both as a dancer and as a person. Maya's confidence in many areas has developed greatly and she always looks forward to her lessons. Tahnee is an exceptional communicator and a caring and encouraging teacher who provides feedback and advice to both students and parents. We are most grateful for the dance education opportunities that Maya continues to have with Tahnee as her teacher.

Maya's performance and exam results and her love of dance are testament of this education. She has progressed very well for her age and this can be accredited to Tahnee's teaching and dedication to her students. Thank you.
