Tania is a very inspiring and talented teacher who can teach people of all levels. Her choreography is remarkable. She has a very evident connection to her culture and country that shines through her dance. As a very respected teacher in the Bay Area, she has brought endless Spirit and grace to her students here. Her classes and drummers give strength! My favorite thing about Tania is her sense humor, she makes her students laugh every time!
I love love love my classes with Tania! Not only does she challenge and inspire us with her dynamic and fun choreography, but she really creates a sense of community and encouragement! Her classes are perfectly appropriate and fun for super beginners to professionals. She has given me many gifts as a dancer and I know that many others feel the same way.
