  • What my clients are saying!

    "The workshop with Tyler was amazing!
    He is such a rare talent and the opportunity to work with him was such a thrill for my dancers.
    He has so much energy and he kept the dancers actively engaged and focused the entire time. They learned so much about performance, technique, and creativity, and he provided them with the beginning's of a great new performance piece. They had a blast working with Tyler and want to know when he will be back!"

    From most recent to least

    Trinity Academy of Irish Dance

    2009-2014

    During my first year in college Anam Mor closed its doors for financial reasons, which lead to my decision to transfer back to my original school. I made this decision for its teaching, performance, and competitive opportunities, along with creative freedom towards my own choreography.

    Anam Mor School Irish Dance & Music

    2002-2009

    Located in Northern suburbs of Chicago, my family decided to transfer to Anam Mor because of its proximity to our home. During my time at Anam Mor, I was taught by ADCRG Amy Moran and TCRG Colleen Martin. Additionally, I was granted my own creative input towards my choreography at an early age.
