I came to TANM in the last nine weeks of 6th grade. I fell in love with flamenco shortly after because the strength it presented gave me a newfound confidence in myself. I also love being a part of TANM’s Dual Credit program where I am able to take classes at the university to further my education. Leaving TANM will be one of the hardest things I will ever have to do, but I am excited to see what the future has in store.

TANM has a great environment and a friendly school culture. I like TANM because it is small and I get to practice guitar everyday. It’s really exciting to learn about culture through dance and rhythm at school, and I know it will be beneficial to my future.
