“Act One has announced the first winner of its Tancer Arts in Education Award, given to an Arizona teacher dedicated to sharing a love of the arts with their students. 

Taryn Tidwell of Shepherd Junior High School in Mesa is the inaugural winner of the Tancer Award. Tidwell is the choir and musical theatre director at the school and is a cancer survivor and a passionate advocate for the performing arts.

Tidwell is a powerful voice across the state for the importance and impact the arts have on the overall learning and social emotional well-being of students. Her mission as an educator is to provide meaningful and memorable musical experiences and opportunities to students in order to empower them to gain confidence, create lasting friendships, and become active members in their future ensembles, careers, and communities.
