Tarun was born and raised in Prestatyn, North Wales and began his dance journey at the age of 3, training mainly in ballet, tap and modern dance through the ISTD syllabus.
In 2020 Tarun was accepted into Northern Ballet School, Manchester where he trained and was exposed to a variety of dance and performance styles in his first year such as ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary and musical theatre. As Tarun has always been interested in contemporary and classical dance, he was accepted onto the classical focus course in second year to pay more attention to these styles. Throughout his next two years, Tarun was taught more styles and techniques of contemporary dance such as Graham, Cunningham and release work. Tarun graduated from Northern Ballet School in 2023 achieving a level 6 diploma.
Throughout his training, Tarun had many workshops ranging from neoclassical and contemporary, focusing on isolating movements throughout the body. In his third year, Tarun had a workshop for An American in Paris which he was intrigued by as it is very balletic but upbeat. He feels that these workshops and the skills he acquired from them aid his movement especially for contemporary dance.
Aside from dancing, Tarun enjoys cooking, listening to music and socialising with friends.
