Tara Harmon - Certified Pilates Instructor
A humble study of all things dance and performance, Tara has trained and professionally taught a variety of disciplines from ballet, jazz, modern, tap, lyrical and hip-hop. In her late teens she apprenticed as a student teacher and eventually went on to achieve her dance teaching certification with the American Dance Teacher’s Association in 1996. During the course of her ballet training Tara was introduced to Pilates and immediately fell in love with the practice. She eventually incorporated much of the Mat fundamentals in her dance class warm-up routines to help her students improve core strength, balance and flexibility. Tara is grateful to have enjoyed a successful career as a professional dance and performing artist but her most heartfelt achievements have come from being an instructor. Combined with her life long passion for health, wellness, and helping others she decided it was only fitting to take her career to the next level by adding Pilates to her teaching repertoire.
