FOCUSING ON THE ARTIST-ATHLETE
Thursday 6:45 pm – 8:15 pm
“In this course, we will explore and focus on honing in on being an artist-athlete. We are artists. We are athletes. And we are both simultaneously. This course will focus on movement-based training that will help translate to dance and also explore the artistic aspect of expressing through creative movement. We will go through warm-up dynamics as well as using speed and agility drills to maximize our dancing ability so that we are better conditioned to train for dance and for our everyday livelihood.
Students should expect consistent high energy, focus and intensity from me. You’ll learn a dynamic warm-up flow and athletic training that I’ve learned from highly esteemed choreographers, athletic trainers and chiropractors. You’ll also have space to simply be you and explore your fullest potential.”
At the age of 9, I started dancing for the Golden State Warriors’ Jr. Jam Squad where my dance career began. After dancing for the Squad for 5 years, I was signed by Bloc Talent Agency in LA along with my twin sister, Caitlin. From there, I started assisting dance conventions like The Pulse On Tour for choreographers Brian Friedman, Dave Scott, Tyce Diorio, Chris Judd, Nappytabs and Marty Kudelka. I was also featured dancing in the fashion show Macy’s Passport for 3 years under the direction of Brian Friedman. During the Macy Passport shows, I danced alongside the Jabbawockeez, the Harajuku Girls and Brian Friedman. I was recently part of the show Beyond Babel under the direction of Keone and Mari Madrid as an ensemble dancer. I was part of Choreo Cookies from 2017-2019 in San Diego and was also part of The Company for the past 7 years from 2010-2017. I am currently a full-time chiropractic student and aspire to become a chiropractor to give back to dancers and promote injury prevention and rehabilitation.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What skill level do I need to be to take a TAG course?
Required background for each TAG course will vary, though most courses are open to students of all levels. If you need further details or assistance, please reach out and consult with our front desk staff.
How big are classes sizes for TAG?
Class sizes will depend on the number of people signed up for a course. Class sizes may range from 3-10 people.
Can I take more than one TAG at a time?
Yes, as long as there is no schedule overlap among the courses you would like to sign up for, you can take more than one TAG course at a time. Each course will be individually charged the full amount.
What happens when I withdraw my enrollment during the TAG course?
The initial payment is non-refundable, however for any monthly payments already made, customers will be refunded for a prorated amount equivalent to the amount of any sessions beyond the time of withdrawal.
For example: A customer has paid the $180 initial payment and the first installment of $70. The customer only attended two sessions and has decided to withdraw from the course. This customer will receive a $35.00 refund.
Why is pricing different for monthly payments dependent on the number of students?
The number of students within each TAG course influences the amount of time each individual student will have with the mentor of the course. Thus, depending on the number of students enrolled in the course, the price will scale accordingly.
