Taryn Na

Ballet, Competitive Program Coordinator, contemporary, Dance Teacher, Jazz, Modern

Taryn is a recent graduate from Ryerson University, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Performance Dance. Her studies have equipped her with teaching, improvisation, choreography, and performance experience, whilst training in Graham technique with Karen Duplisea, ballet with Tanya Evidente and John Ottman, contemporary with Ryan Lee and Robert Glumbek, and jazz with Linda Garneau.

Leading up to her degree, Taryn began her early training at the Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre (CCDT) in Toronto. With a foundation in classical ballet, she has completed eight of the RAD graded exams and passed her Intermediate, Advanced I and Advanced II examination with distinction. It was her love for Limon modern and contemporary dance that inspired her to become a part of CCDT’s contemporary company, where she performed for five years and toured throughout Canada.

Taryn is grateful to join the team at CDM and plans to share her knowledge and inspire, though movement and dance.
