ARDA is EXCITED to welcome our newest staff member, Ms. Tara Bell!
Teaching is my greatest passion, whether it be my tumbling or elementary students. My desire to instruct and teach became apparent in high school when I began assisting young gymnasts for my cheernastic teacher. I absolutely loved teaching and helping them reach new skills. Shortly after high school I began working at a studio as the Tumbling/Cheer/Acrobatics Instructor. I grew and learned so much through those eight years at Co. Dance. I was loyal to them til the end. Then, I was ecstatic when All Rhythm Dance Alley sought me out to be apart of their team! I am so excited to share my teaching experience at this studio. Watching my students work hard on their skills and accomplishing their goals bring me so much joy! Being with them week after week, watching them grow, and building trust through great relationships is a great blessing for me. I truly love my job!
