Miss Tirita fell in love with dance at the age of three years old. She continued dancing in jazz, tap,
acrobats, and ballet. She won numerous honors and awards with Dance Master of America. She also danced with the Tulsa School
of Ballet under the direction of Moscelyne Larkin and the late Roman Jasinski. Miss Tirita was awarded a scholarship to study
at the Quartz Mountain Arts Institute in Ballet. Miss Tirita performed in the Tulsa "Nutcracker" and "Firebird"
as an apprentice in the corps of ballet for the Tulsa Ballet Theater.
Miss Tirita also has a Bachelor of Science
degree in Early Childhood Education and has since been a teacher with Sand Springs Schools. She is currently a Parent Educator
for the Parents As Teachers program.
Tirita has logged over 1,000 performances in the musical "Oklahoma"
at the outdoor theater production at Discoverland! She danced the lead role of "Miss Dream Laurey" and also became
company manager and assistant director. Miss Tirita finished out her 12 year career at Discoverland by becoming the choreographer
of the pre-show and "Oklahoma"
Miss Tirita's hope is to provide a studio where success is measured throught
the enjoyment of dance. For some, it is the freedom of movement and expression, for others it is the experience of performing
before an audience. Whatever the motivation, encouragement, warmth and generosity are paramount and given to all.
