Hi everyone! My name is Teaira and I am glad you're interested in dance! I love to dance and I have been dancing since I was 5 years old. I have performed and competed in multiple national cheer and dance competitions in different states around the country. In college, I joined a university contemporary/hip hop dance team and branched off and created my own dance organization on campus that specialized in Hip Hop, Contemporary, African and Jazz dancing/choreography. After college, I moved to Connecticut and taught hip hop dancing, cheer and step to 6th grade students at a charter school.I enjoy dancing and I am a firm believer that dance is a form of art and structure. When teaching my students, I love to make learning fun. I believe that dance is a way to express yourself and everyone is very unique; therefore, I make sure that I find ways to make the music and dance resonate with my students. Not only will students learn how to dance, but I make sure that my students increase self-confidence, learn how to work well with others, how to express themselves through the art dance and enjoy it along the way.I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals!
