Tamiya is a thirteen year old from Niagara Falls, she will begin her grade nine year at Stamford Collegiate this September. Tamiya has been singing since before she could talk but it wasn’t until she auditioned for Linus Hand Productions at the age of nine that she realized her passion for being on stage. Tamiya has performed in musical theatre productions of Shrek the Musical, Camp Rock, The Little Mermaid, Highschool Musical and Beauty and the Beast. Although she enjoys musical theatre her dream is to become a solo vocalist. She is inspired by artists such as Beyonce, Lizzo, Alicia Keys, and Rhianna. Tamiya has been working with her vocal coach Tenja Hagenberg since 2018 and has flourished under her guidance. Tamiya’s other passion, second only to singing, is dance. She is a competitive dancer at Foundations Dance Company and trains in Jazz, Lyrical, Ballet en Pointe, and Hip Hop. She is always in awe of the creativity of her coaches/choreographers at the dance studio and considers herself lucky to be surrounded by so many creative and supportive role models. Her greatest hope is that one day she will be able to merge both of her passions on stage.
