Dance Step Teachers Assisstant
Tahlia had her first dance class at the age of two but was more interested in running off. She then tried again at the age of five, but that didn’t end well either. Just before she turned eight, Tahlia asked her mum once again if she could dance, Tahlia’s mum was very reluctant but thought they would give it another shot and that is where Tahlia’s love for dance began. Tahlia has been a part of many performances and comps (concerts, Dance-Aid, Masters of choreography and Wakakirri) Tahlia has participated in many workshops (Radar Technique, Dance Prescription, Millenium and an AcroDance bootcamp) But the highlight of Tahlia’s dance career was being selected to dance in Los Angeles, America. She performed
on the Disneyland stage, in the Disneyland parade, Universal Studios and Hollywood Boulevard.
Tahlia started student teaching at the age of fourteen, she assisted the under eight musical theater, jazz and tap class for two years. Tahlia supported the students in class, whether it was going oversteps or comforting them. At the end of year concerts, she would help the students get ready to perform and was on the side lines dancing the choreography for them. Tahlia assisted the performing arts teacher at New Gisborne Primary for one term in 2019. She helped the students discover different elements of dance, how to create a dance and how to work as a team.
