Tianna Seaborn – Front Desk Receptionist at the Salsa With Silvia Dance Studio


Front Desk Receptionist
Tianna Seaborn, born in Washington D.C., has been dancing since she was just 5 years old. Starting out as a cheerleader and joining performing arts teams in her community and schools throughout her teenage and young adult life, Tianna has well over 15 years of experience with dance ranging from genres such as hip-hop, jazz, and heels. Now-a-days Tianna enjoys performing as a freelance dancer named gG and creating choreography and concept videos to display on her YouTube and website. Salsa and Bachata is new to her, but she enjoys learning and taking classes whenever she can and hopes to add them to her repertoire. She believes dancing is the language of her soul that she is most fluent in to express herself.
Besides her love and passion for dance, she has over 10 years of professional experience to include administrative, operations, supervisory, and database management. During the day, she works full-time at a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the homeless population in the District. Hopping into work at just 14 years old, she quickly gained knowledge as an administrative assistant to now working as an Administrative Coordinator/Database Manager. Wanting to merge her passion with her professional experience, she joined the Salsa with Silvia team and is eager to continue learning and being a part of the studio’s growth.
