Dance has always been Tessa’s passion. From the time she was a little girl, she’s been dancing in one style or another, primarily studying ballet and modern from college to the present. Through the years, Tessa has studied with, taught, and choreographed for groups and soloists throughout Utah.Tessa joined the VDE company in 2005 and enjoyed her role as the Community School Director from 2009 to 2011. She had the opportunity to work with children throughout the valley in VDE’s community outreach workshops. Tessa also served as Dance Specialist for the Cache County School District during the 2009-2010 school year. Dance keeps her busy, but the majority of her time is spent chasing her children, Avery, Parker, Sam, Lucas, and Quinn. Every once in a while she squeezes in a little time for sewing or crafting. Tessa would like to thank her husband and family who provide continual support, and sacrifice many of their weekends for this art.
