About this pro

I have been a teacher for almost 8 years. I am a writer, actress, singer and dancer. I currently teach dance regularly and am a guest instructor for Turn it Up dance Convention where I teach Broadway master classes. I also have several clients for whom I coach acting auditions for Tv/film. I have starred in several web series & films, danced in commercials for brands such as Pepsi & and toured twice with the Broadway National tour of How the Grinch Stole Christmas to name a few. I most recently created my own limited series, which one several awards at film festivals. I also recently performed in West Side Story as Graziella. As a teacher I truly love the work & love to inspire others. I teach everything from the basis of acting and storytelling.

I am a true nerd and love analyzing scripts and finding your version of the character. In terms of  dancing I love teaching technique while also getting to help them connect to their most authentic self by telling stories through movement. I put 100% into every thing I do and love seeing a student's love for performing grow. I make my clients feel comfortable and prepared for any audition while also challenging them to be the best they can be.

    Tara is one of the most nurturing and efficient instructors I’ve encountered. Her experience with children, teenagers, and adults has made her one of the most effective communicators and educators I’ve met. With her experience in both film/television and live stage productions, she brings both variety and a unique perspective, whether she is training dancers or coaching actors. She approaches her work responsibly and with kindness. Tara is punctual, knowledgeable, hard working and all with great prices $. Highly recommended!
