Beginning at the age of 3, Natashia danced with Tresa Mott's School of Dance in Knoxville. During her 15 years as a student with the studio, she participated in any class she could enroll in, including jazz, tap, ballet, pointe, hip hop, performance troupe, and technique. She also participated on the Knoxville High School Dance Team. She attended many dance camps, studying under various instructors. She became a student assistant at the age of 11 until she graduated high school in 2007.
After graduation, Natashia was offered a full time teaching position at the studio. In her 13+ years of teaching, she has continued her dance education attending teacher seminars, training sessions, and participated in many trips with the students to summer dance camps. As the studio owner, she is also passionate about her instructors, providing the tools they need to succeed. Each year they take trips together to the DanceLife Teacher Conference where they dance, learn and perfect their craft from sun up, to sun down with some of the top names in the industry!
Natashia is extremely passionate about dance, and about making each of our students feel welcomed, loved and accepted in their own skin. She is also a firm believer in age-appropriate dance routines and costuming. Being a Knoxville native and graduate, she has dedicated her life to her studio and students, and enjoys every second if it!
