Tara works out of Atomic Ballroom in Irvine, DanScene Dance Studio in Costa Mesa, California, and at Buddy Schwimmer’s studio, The Dance Center in Redlands, California. Tara has been dancing in a wide range of styles from jazz and ballet to swing and ball room since she was a child. After graduating from University of California Berkley, she returned to southern California to continue her career as a professional dance instructor.
