Hello! My name is Ms. Teryn Tachuk, and I am so excited to be teaching dance at both Skyline High School and Shepherd Junior High for the 2020-2021 school year.
I am originally from a small town in Michigan, and moved to Arizona when I was still in high school. I graduated from Campo Verde High School in Gilbert, where I performed and choreographed on the dance company each year in addition to performing on a dance company at Wagner Dance Arts. I started teaching dance at a private studio when I was 17 and fell in love with it. I auditioned for the Arizona State University dance education program and was one of 20 individuals who were accepted. I studied dance and education for four years, including three semesters spent in dance classrooms in public schools. I also taught part-time at Arizona Dance Studio in Chandler, where I still work today running our performance company. I graduated with honors with a BFA in K-12 dance education. I spent two years running the dance program at Smith Junior High, and am looking forward to my third year on the Skyline staff, and my first year as a member of the Shepherd family!
I have been professionally trained in ballet, jazz, contemporary/modern, and hip-hop. My curriculum will infuse all of these genres of dance in addition to choreographic projects. I currently teach beginning dance at Skyline, and all levels at Shepherd. I also sponsor the Island Dance Club at Skyline. I look forward to this unique opportunities this school year presents and helping each and every student grow as dancers as well as individuals.
