Albuquerque, New Mexico
Tabitha began dancing at the age of 4 at Miss Minnie’s School of Ballet in Roswell, New Mexico. She continued her training there and at En Pointe Dance Academy until moving to Albuquerque to attend the University of New Mexico. In addition to her studies at UNM, she trained and taught at the Hayden School of ballet and performed with Ballet Repertory Theatre. She graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in Dance in 2010.
Tabitha grew up in a Christian family and accepted the Lord as her Savior at an early age. When she was 5 she realized that she wanted to use her love of dance as a ministry after seeing Toymaker’s Dream. This calling was reaffirmed after participating in a YWAM dance workshop. Her studies at UNM, while focused on dance, also provided many opportunities to gain further understanding of the Bible as a whole and her desire to follow Jesus in obeying the concepts of the Law and the Prophets as summarized by Micah 6:8. Tabitha is so thankful and excited to have the opportunity to act in obedience to God’s calling with Paradosi where she hopes to act justly, love mercy and dance humbly. Tabi also helps lead set-up and tear down during Paradosi programs.
