Tanya was raised in the West Midlands region of England, competing in rhythmic gymnastics before discovering dance at the age of 11 when she began her training in contemporary dance at Centre for Advanced Training in Birmingham. Learning from professionals such as Gary Clarke, Rosie Kay and ACE Dance and Music, she developed her further training in ballet and contemporary. At the age of 14, Tanya attained a place at Birmingham Ormiston Academy where she was first introduced to jazz, hip hop and physical theatre.
Tanya continued her studies in contemporary dance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Recently graduating, she has worked with various choreographers including Akeim Toussaint Buck, Henry Montes and Joel Brown from Candoco Dance Company. These opportunities and experiences have expanded Tanya’s interests and deepened her passion for performing. Throughout her degree, Tanya enjoyed floorwork and release technique alongside technical movement styles.
Outside of dance, Tanya loves travelling and exploring new cultures. She also enjoys listening to music, visiting friends and spending time with family.
