“The experiences that were given to us at TPA were second to none and I thank not only Mrs P and Ms Dunn but each teacher for their time and effort put into their students. While I was training full time at TPA, I was extremely lucky to be able to compete at the Prix De Lausanne in Switzerland, Youth America Grand Prix in NYC twice and Alana Haines Awards in New Zealand. Being able to represent Tanya Pearson Academy in those competitions were by far the most incredible and life changing experiences.”

“During my time at TPA, I grew not only as a dancer but as a person and I will never forget any moment that was spent with my ballet family, especially receiving the nickname, “Munchkin” from Mrs P. I forever look back on all the amazing memories that were made from day one at TPA”

While I was training full time at TPA, I was extremely lucky to be able to compete at the Prix De Lausanne in Switzerland, Youth America Grand Prix in NYC twice and Alana Haines in New Zealand. Being able to represent Tanya Pearson in those competitions were by far the most incredible and life changing experiences.  During my time at TPCCA, I grew not only as a dancer but as a person and I will never forget any moment that was spent with my ballet family, especially receiving the nickname, “Munchkin” from Mrs P.
