She has been dancing for fifteen years, spending two of those years teaching at the dance studio she started as a high school student. Though she explored many different forms of dance, her passion and heart were found in tap. She believes that dance instills a confidence in people that greatly influences their lives and stories. Seeing how that plays out makes her so happy.
Tessa is currently a student at Lee University, living out her own story with passion and purpose—passion for discovering her art and voice and purpose in encouraging others to do the same.
