Dancing Tehani Productions, Entertainment & Education
"The wonder of Tehani's performances is that they are so multi-faceted and, often, deeply moving. There is a depth, resonance, and rich complexity to her work. Between a few dances during a performance she can move from stirring sensuality to transporting spirituality and, at times, there is a graceful fusion of the two. She always stays true to herself and her roots and, while she obviously has a seriousness of purpose, there is an undeniable whimsicality and joy that underlines her performances. Every time she gets out and lights up a room with her dance, she, like all terrific artists, helps illuminate the unlimited possibilities of beauty and freedom". ~Ken Capobianco, Freelance Writer for the Boston Globe

One of our favorite training jobs here at Dancing Tehani is to create choreography for clients preparing for special events and occasions. Some of our favorites include father-daughter dances at weddings and (recently) a company-wide flash mob at a retirement party. We love seeing our clients happy and the shared pride in a job well done.
