Instructors

Tara Miller

Head Instructor, Owner

Tara Miller began her training at the age of three in Tucson, Arizona crediting her basic training with Linda Walker at Academy of Dance and Tucson Regional Ballet Company.

By 17, she accepted an apprenticeship with Ballet Arizona under Jean Paul Comelin.  Her love of dance brought her to New York City where she continued her training on scholarship at Steps on Broadway and  the Joffery Ballet.

Tara danced professionally both in film and in companies from Corps de Ballet to Principal, most notably The Lindt Theater Ballet of Carnegie Hall in New York under Rose Marie Lindt whose training is in the direct line of the great Anna Pavlova.

She found a new love with her family, husband Scott, and their three children.  Becoming a mother uncovered a passion for teaching children.

Tara believes her purpose is not only to share her professional training that promotes discipline and strength but also encourage children to recognize their own gifts, to give them a passion and perseverance to succeed not just in dance but in life.

She does her teaching unto the Lord and is faithful with all that He has entrusted to her.
