The Twirl Divas & Dancers Performing Arts Studio, Inc. is committed to serving the community and offering meaningful, low-cost, fun dance classes. Founded in 2010 by Tanika D. Harris, the studio offers classes that are taught by qualified instructors with a focus to help prepare students for advance level performances. Along with her co-founder Keyonda Thompson, their program has grown in number and sophistication.

Harris is quick to point our that Twirl Divas is not just a typical dance program. They offer a vast variety of dance instructions such as ballet, lyrical liturgical, modern, hip hop, gymnastics and tumbling. They also offer a full after school programs for individuals form pre-K up to sixth grade which is available Monday through Friday and is all inclusive in their initial tuition. They have classes for two year olds up to adult. They also compete at the local and state levels. The Dazzling Divas is another program offered by the Twirl Divas to high school aged girls.

During the performance season, the groups perform at community events, in parades, parties, ensembles and corporate engagements. In addition, the studio conducts two recitals annually which allows them to showcase the talents of every member and particpant.

Harris says starting Twirl Divas was quite easy to do. She is a former Golden Delight Dancer of North Carolina A&T State University, and continues to assist their program. She also had and still does conduct one on one [private] classes to teach young girls how to twirl a baton and flag, and prepare them to perform on the high school level. Her services became so in demand, that many of parents asked Harris to form a group that would allow her to teach more.

Thompson has recently opened a sister program, Props Academy to Twirl Divas in Savannah, Georgia. There she is providing their signature brand to young gilrs and has plans to do even more. Enrollment typically occurs during the months of August and January. “We truly believe in the work that we are doing and with the youth involved, and we hope to positively impact more future dancers,” says Harris.
