"My first dance class with T, I was nervous, shy and even a little bit uncomfortable. I didn't know what to expect, but knew that I wanted to have the confidence to not just move in time on the dance floor, but to forget time and just move, freely and unapologetically in a way that was natural and fun. After my first lesson, I knew that something inside of me had shifted and in every class after I have felt confident and comfortable. The way Tineke teaches is positive, empowering and safe. Most of all, it's a lot of fun! She is a game changer."
-Briana Azar, studying BMus in popular music performance at BIMM
"I have had the pleasure of working with Tineke over a period of several months in an outdoor production of Pericles. She is one of the most passionate performers I have ever directed. I know she practiced many hours in her own time. I cast Tineke in my production because she was easily the most confident physical performer. Her stature and poise were amazonian elegance.
Her movement, strength and balance - exceptional.
She moved easily between glamour and warrior. She communicated well as a teacher during the many hours of fight choreography.
Whether going onstage or into the jungle I'd want her on my team."
