|Tian Harris " Ty "
Hi I'm Tian but people call me Ty or Yaya! Ever since I was little I loved to dance. That is all I can remember. I've been on every team imaginable; my hometown drill team, my church step team, local talent shows and me friends and I would make up routines in the alley of the apartment complex that we lived in. Fast forward to 2003 when I moved back to California after having my first daughter. I began taking hip hop and cardio classes at Chabot Community College. Soon after I auditioned for a group called New Style Motherlode of Oakland and made the cut! Taking the classes and rehearsing and performing with NWM I knew that I wanted to do more. Especially after a few of my classmates told me that I should become and instructor. In 2008 I began teaching my own classes after an instructor called in sick and my boss asked me to sub for her. The rest is history! I've taught and performed with the burlesque crew called the Hott Toddies out of San Francisco and I am now solo. I've had performance teams for my choreography classes in the past. So, to put everything in a nutshell I have taught these formats; Zumba, hip hop, pop, Palango, Strength training, Core classes, Boot Camp and Stilleto classes. I love dancing with all of my heart and I just want to give that joy to everybody that will receive it.
