Dance Studio, and Sky High Dance, an after school enrichment program. She has also had the opportunity to teach Master Classes in Texas and Japan.
With a passion for dance and dancers Tinelle understands that dance is more than movement to music. It’s a way of living, sharing, and expressing. In her class you will be challenged with new ways of learning dance; with an open mind and heart you will gain new knowledge and perspective on how to share your gift of movement through contemporary and hip hop fusion. With dance being multidimensional in Tinelle’s class students will have the opportunity to explore movement with no boundaries, improvisation, rhythmic drills, across the floor warm-ups, breathing and centering exercises, as well as how dance assists with everyday life with either contemporary or hip hop being the main focus. Tinelle’s class is a safe and open place to learn, explore, and grow not only as a dancer, but as an individual. As Tinelle continues to grow by pushing herself in learning and training in new things she is excited to share and help develop her students. Tinelle is happy to be apart of such an amazing family teaching at 5th Row Performing Center.
