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
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.
