Tia started dancing at a young age but truly developed her love for dance in her early teens. She took classes at The Place in London throughout her teenage years, learning from local industry professionals, and got the opportunity to perform on The Place’s home stage and at the National Library.
At 18, Tia moved to Manchester to continue her vocational training. Here she studied contemporary dance alongside ballet, jazz, commercial, aerial hoop and silks at the University of Salford. Here she worked with Coalesce Dance Theatre, Joseph Lau, Bridget Fiske, Tuckshop Dance Theatre, Josh Hawkins, Yue Ying Ho and Daisy Howell. Alongside her studies Tia joined Company Chameleon’s Senior Youth Company, learning from the company’s resident dancers and performing for the company’s stake holders. Tia has had many performance opportunities, both at university and through working as a freelance dancer, performing in art galleries, bars, and local theatres.
Her most recent highlight was working with artist, Greg Burgoyne, to create a live element for his latest exhibition at The Lowry.
