Tammy Tropeau began her professional dance training at the age of nine at The National Ballet School in Toronto. After six years of study in both the Vaganova and Cecchetti methods with such teachers as Ms. Oliphant, Mr. Luc Amyot, and Karen Kain, Tammy graduated in 1992.
After a short professional training program in Philadelphia Tammy realized that her feet were failing and underwent reconstructive surgery on both feet. She then returned to The National Ballet School for an additional two years for their Professional Teacher Training Program. Tammy graduated in 1994 and holds her Elementary, Intermediate and Advanced Cecchetti certificates as well as her Associate Imperial Society Teachers of Dancing certificate allowing her to place students into examinations. At the age of 19 Tammy returned to Saskatoon to open her own studio – Studio One RP Dance. Since then she has been invited to Spain to study Flamenco dance, traveled to New York, LA, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Boston and Arizona to study new dance techniques. She also returns to Toronto annually for Cecchetti seminars to continue her training.
Along with being a studio owner, Tammy stays involved in the busy lives of her family of 4 children and husband. She is looking forward to sharing her passion of dance with the students and instructors of Studio One for the 26th year, and is excited to see what the upcoming seasons will bring!
