Miss Alyssa

Miss Naomi

Naomi started dancing at the age of 7 and for the past 19 yrs it has truly been my deepest passion. For the first 9 yrs. of my career I trained in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Modern, Hip Hop and Contemporary. My family moved around a lot while I was growing up so I never got too comfortable in any studio, but I believe that this also allowed me to train under many different instructors/professionals which only broadened my horizons.

Once I reached the 11th. grade my mom asked me one day if I would consider doing Ballroom dancing. I spent 5 yrs training, teaching and competing all across the United States in all styles of American an International.

In 2013, life brought me back to Tina’s Dance Academy. I absolutely love sharing my passion with young aspiring dancers and thank God for the opportunity to do this in such a fun and loving atmosphere.

Miss Brittany

Miss Brittany is our newest teacher, joining our teaching staff 2018.

My parents put me into dance in Buffalo, NY when I was 3 yrs old. I later moved to florida when I was 14 and danced with Tina’s Dance Academy on the competition Team until I was 18. I graduated from USF in 2011 with my Bachelors in Criminology and since have enjoyed raising my three children, being a wife and working at the Hernando County Clerks Office. I love being around children and am grateful to be a part of this studio.
