Tara started her career in dance, performing with Martinique School of Performing Arts. She was awarded scholarships to take professional classes in New York and Vancouver in the late 1980’s. She studied various styles of dance throughout her training, and then went on to perform in various productions such as the Nutcracker, Cinderella, and Annie.
Tara has done a variety of dance work in Vancouver and Whistler, introducing and creating dance programs for children that wouldn’t otherwise had an opportunity to participate and learn dance. This development continued with the creation of a similar program at the Johnson Bentley Community Centre in West Kelowna. These programs are still in operation leaving behind a legacy. In 2008, Tara found her way to Robb Card Dance, and has made lifelong friends and looks forward to teaching for many years to come.
