Tara Dilley

Twinkle Star Dance Program Director/ Special Events Director

Tara Dilley brings 30 years of dance instruction experience to our program. She owned and operated her own studio in West Chester for 29 years. In addition to obtaining her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Theater and Dance from Northern Kentucky University, Tara has been awarded multiple scholarships and awards throughout her performing and teaching career.  As a studio director she has choreographed hundreds of routines in ballet, tap, jazz, musical theater and hip-hop.  She began her performance career right here in Ohio dancing at Kings Island during college. She then performed in New York, Las Vegas, and North Carolina.  After 5 years of performing professionally she realized her true love was in teaching children.  Many of her students have gone on to become professional dancers on cruise chips, Vegas, Disney, and New York.  She has found every aspect of her career rewarding from teaching young children to young adults and watching them grow into amazing performers.

Tara Dilley is so excited to bring a program called Twinkle Star Dance to Perfection Gymnastics. This amazing program was started in California by Tiffany Henderson, and is not available anywhere else in the Cincinnati area.  This program teaches dancers the proper technique while loving every minute of the class.  Your children will love every class and will be asking "Is today dance day?". The action packed class holds the attention span of every dancer from ages 2-16 and keeps them growing as a dancer at every class.  Twinkle Star and Show Star dance is an innovative method of teaching dance to children and has been proven to be the perfect mixture of structure and fun!
