I have never had an encounter with Tate, whether it be taking one of her classes or social dancing that I did not absolutely enjoy. From the first encounter Tate makes you feel like a long time friend. Exuding an attitude of total acceptance and zero judgement in each of her classes the element of self-consciousness disappears entirely. She is full of energy and life making class an absolute fun, exciting experience. She keeps a smile on the entire class with her witty charm and sassy flare. Whether it's a group class or private instruction Tate always takes the time to spend a little one-on-one time with each student.
You definitely get your money's worth when it comes to the quality of instruction you receive. All forms of dance share many foundational techniques. Likewise each distinct form of dance requires the mastery of its own unique fundamentals and skills. A solid understanding of this principle is a critical altitude to look look in a quality dance instructor. Drawing on many years of experience in various forms of dance from hip-hop to jazz to numerous styles of Latin rhythms Tate is able to deliver instruction that is not only well rounded, but also foundationally grounded and specific to the form of dance that each of her students seek to master.
If you're looking for a fun, energetic and talented dance instructor with a genuine desire to develop and bring out the best dancer in each of her students then look no further than the lovely Tate.
