Review for Traveling Tutus Inc., Kissimmee, FL, USA
Working as an ambassador for Traveling TuTus has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life as a dancer.
My name is Kyle Tanguay and I am currently a Junior Dance Major at The University of The Arts in Philadelphia, PA! When I'm not in classes at UArts, you can find me working with companies such as The Vanessa Long Dance Company, as well as Boston Community Dance Project.
Growing up in Rochester, NH I started my training at a local studio by the name of Fusion Dance Academy. Coming from a working class family, with two parents working 40+ hours a week, and a younger sister, it was very hard for my family to afford dance training. It was through the kindness of another's heart that I was given a scholarship so that I may pursue this craft that I love so dearly and to this day now teach at Fusion which has quickly become my second home. Since those fundamental years I have gone on to work with artists such as Kaneeza Schaal, Sidra Bell, Jessie Zaritt, and many many more incredible artists from all over the world.
It was through the kindness of another that I was given my chance to dance, and grow every single day I walked into the studio and for that I am eternally grateful. With all of this being stated, I have made it my mission to give any person the chance to dance. Working with charities such as The Dizzy Feet Foundation, Neighborhood Engagement at UArts (NEUARTS), and now Traveling Tutus, I believe together we can do what we can to give every child the chance to dance.
This organization holds at its heart all the virtues, and Morales, that are necessary to create a world where dance is appreciated and accessible to all. After over a decade in the field of dance, I am so happy to have a found a group of strong independent people, eager for change. Five stars, hands down!
