Meet the Teachers

The Body 2 Star Dance Studio Instructors!
 

Helping You Get Your Moves On!

While dancing might seem easy if you’re a spectator watching it from the sideline as soon as you chime in to learn, it is actually a long and arduous error-and-trial experience! Nevertheless, never mind that as that’s the ultimate reason why our studio hired a dozen of professional and seasoned dancing instructors…
All of them will be ready to give you a helping hand (or a leg) at any time!

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.

Congratulations miss Tahnee on such a fabulous concert! I’m thrilled with what a fantastic job you have done with the kids. There’s a perfect balance of professionalism and fun. I also love that you danced in the show as well. You should be very proud. Thank you.
