Tara danced with the Alberta Ballet in her native Canada and the regional theatres in Coburg and Detmold before switching sides as ballet master. For the last twelve seasons, she was engaged at the Landestheater Coburg, where she acted as the right hand of ballet director Mark McClain. Her rich experience is the perfect fit for the Gauthier Dance JUNIORS. Not only has she rehearsed countless pieces by, among others, Uwe Scholz, Mark Spradling, Lode Devos, Jutta Ebnother and of course Mark McClain. She was also a sought-after guest teacher with companies in Germany as well as „back home“, with the Alberta Ballet. Tara's own artistic background is an additional asset for her work with the young dancers. As a choreographer, she has created a number of pieces, including full-length productions such as Dangerous Liaisons and Clockwork Orange.
