Hi, I'm Tiph! I come from a competitive and professional dance background and have been dancing for over 25 years. I spent 10 years competing in ballet, jazz, and lyrical. Outside of competitive dance, I have performed at Raiders, 49ers, Lakers, and Suns games. I danced with the Fresno City Ballet Company as a demi-soloist and soloist. For four seasons I lived out my dreams of being an NFL Cheerleader as an Oakland Raiderette. I was co-captain, captain, and 2009 Dancer of the Year. During my time with the Raiders, I performed in Iraq on a military tour as well in Austria at the 2011 Euro-Bowl. I was a member of the Phoenix Suns Dancers, where I choreographed multiple half-time routines and continued my passion for performing. I rediscovered my love for dance when I began my coaching journey. I was the Head Coach of the Fresno State Dance Team, UC Berkeley Dance Team, and UCLA Dance Team, and am the current Director of the Las Vegas Raiderettes. My motto is "aspire to inspire", and I hope my classes do just that. I'm looking forward to dancing with you all.
