Olivia Betteridge Quote

“Tanya Pearson Academy allows dancers to have input from a multitude of esteemed teachers. The structured full-time training schedule allowed me to build a strong and secure ‘base’ technique. Perhaps the biggest attribute of TPA is the sheer amount of contacts, networks and connections. This gave me the stepping stone I needed to help find my place in the dance world
