At a young age, Tonya was exposed to many sports and activities but dance was where she found her passion. She trained and competed in all styles of dance from age 3-18. From there, Tonya attended Wake Forest University where she pursued a Bachelor’s in Finance and a Master’s in Accountancy. At WFU, Tonya was a member and captain of the dance team as well as the dance company. After graduating, Tonya returned to NYC where she became the head coach of her high school’s dance team, choreographing their season dances and national routines. Today, Tonya works at WeWork, where she spends her time working on financial operations. She loves the opportunity that DWNYC has given her to continue her passion and to once again be a part of a loving dance family, especially with some of the girls she grew up! She looks forward to another fun season and is excited to bring a little bit of Madonna to the stage with her incredible cast!
