THE TEAM BEHIND THE TEAM
Hi my name is Ms. Tabitha and I am the proud Owner of Dance Clinic. I started DC in 2014 at the age of 25, knowing that this career path was part of my life's purpose. With passion,commitment, and drive I have built a business with strong morals making it a safe, & positive environment for children to flourish and grow as individuals. Dance molds children to be strong, independent, & confident. They gain life skills like memory training, time management, sportsmanship and so much more. I was awarded South Coast Emerging Leader in 2018 and Faces of New Bedford in 2019. I am a strong female activist and I empower all young women to become strong leaders and to find their passion. I am a mom to a beautiful little girl named Declynn, who is 3 years old. Her favorite place to be is at the studio with Mom watching all of the children dance. You will find me in the classroom teaching your child and behind the scenes running the business. With 29 years of dance experience in all styles, and levels of dance,I promise to provide the highest quality of training and a fun memorable experience for you and your family.Thank you for choosing DC and allowing us to be a part of your life.
Hi, my name is Ms. Shana and I have been the Office Manager at Dance Clinic for five years. I absolutely love what I do here at DC, especially meeting new families and children each season and watching them grow into young adults. Dance Clinic has become my second home and family. My passion for dance started at age 2. I went to I've Got Rhythm Dance Studio in Dartmouth until age 17. When I'm not here at night, I work for a doctor doing administration work. I have a eight year old daughter named Leylah and you can find her behind the desk with me on Saturday mornings. I strongly believe dance changes lives and shapes you into becoming a better person. I'm here to help you and guide you on your child's dance journey. I look forward to meeting your family!
Hi, my name is Miss Taylor! I have been dancing since I was 4 years old. I have competed all along the East Coast most of my childhood and was on two college dance teams. I have had an extreme love for dance my entire life. Dance was never just a sport or an extra-curricular for me, it has always been my passion. I knew from a young age that I wanted to teach so I began assistant teaching at age 14! I have a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management from Bridgewater State University. I teach a variety of styles including ballet, tap, jazz, acrobats, contemporary, and lyrical classes. I am an Acrobatic Arts certified teacher so you will find me teaching all of our acrobat classes here at Dance Clinic! I was awarded Best Young Choreographer at Spirit of Dance Awards in 2022. I also am a dance competition judge for Dance to Inspire! I teach our Competitive Program and Recreational Program and also am the director of our Performance Team Volunteer Program. Dance teaches discipline, time management, dedication, social skills, the importance of individuality, responsibility, and many life lessons but is also a positive outlet of self expression for all ages. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to teach your dedicated and hardworking children. I can’t wait to see you in class!

Now I get to combine teaching and dance into one! I am so excited to be apart of the Dance Clinic family and cannot wait to share my love for dance with you all!
Hi, my name is Ms. Madison! I started my dance journey at Dance Clinic at 9 years old and I still currently dance on the competition team. I am a Senior in high school studying Legal and Protective Services! I truly believe dance has made me the person I am today. Dance has taught me perseverance, respect, and how to work with others. Dance has allowed me to see the world in so many different perspectives. I am so thankful and excited to have this opportunity to get to know all of you as a teacher & a member of the competition team this year. I can't wait to see what this new season has to offer!
Hi, I’m Ms Eva! I grew up in a small town, dancing since I was about 3 years old. I danced competitively for about 10 years and majored in dance at Bridgewater State University, where I choreographed 4 pieces for the winter and spring productions. Dance had such a big impact on me that at 12 I knew I wanted to teach and dance for the rest of my life. My favorite style of dance is modern, however I have a long experience with tap, jazz, lyrical, hip hop, and ballet. Dance teaches so many important life skills and I’m grateful I can help pass that along with Dance Clinic. I’m a boy mom to my crazy son Mason who’s almost 2, and I also have two cats. I’m so excited for the opportunity to teach children the value of dance in not only physical activity, but self confidence, dedication, discipline, and life long friendships!

My favorite styles are Tap, Contemporary and Acro. I am eager to learn more every day, I wouldn’t rather be anywhere else. Dance Clinic has made such a huge impact on my life.
