Miss Tash has been dancing for 16 years covering all styles of dance while under the guidance of some of Australia’s most prestigious dance teachers and choreographers. From a young age Tash was involved in all things dance, performing at the DET schools spectacular, touring in Queensland for the Showcase Nationals Dance Competition in which she was in the top placing’s, and entering into many eisteddfods both as a soloist and as a part of a Jazz troupe as well as doing student choreographies and improvisation in Contemporary and Classical Ballet. Tash has entered into many ballet exams from the tender age of 5 covering both the B.A.L (Ballet Australasia Limited) and R.A.D (Royal Academy of Dance) syllabus. During her junior grades she received Honors with distinction, the highest mark possible and then later sat her Senior Ballet exams, training up to an Advanced Foundation level. Whilst at school she had the privilege of being taught by leading Contemporary choreographer Jason Winters, where she undertook dance as an elective for her HSC at Ecole Ballet and Theatre. As well as this, she voluntarily taught dance at a local primary school, catering to all ages and abilities and also choreographed her former high school’s musical production, ‘Back to the 80’s’.
Tash is currently completing her Certificate IV in Dance Teaching and Management, giving her valuable skills and knowledge in how to teach dance safely and correctly. She is also a provisional teacher member of BAL, allowing her to teach their syllabus in Jazz, Tap, Ballet and Hip Hop, as well as being able to enter her students in exams. She is also an affiliate member of the Commonwealth Society of Teachers of Dancing (CSTD) allowing her to teach, famous choreographer, Jason Winter’s Contemporary syllabus and enter students in exams for this as well. She is first aid (anaphylaxis/asthma) and working with children qualified.
Tash is a dedicated teacher with over five years teaching experience. From a very young age it has been her dream to teach and nurture children, and allow them to create a passion and dream of their own. She finds that being a teacher is one of the most fulfilling and rewarding careers as every day she is able to see the children grow; both as dancers and people. Although she loves and has trained in all styles of dance; Contemporary, Ballet and Jazz are among her favourites and she hopes she can pass on her knowledge and passion to her students. She looks forward to meeting you and your sparkling dancer!
