Founder of BatuqueFIT Dance and Fitness Program. 2019, owner of my own Dance Studio called School of Dance and Fitness by Tania Daley in New Orleans.
 
 I was born in Managua, Nicaragua and I grew up dancing. I had my first dance performance at age of 4. My first dance competition at age of 6; Winning my first place in Merengue and Quebradita. I have an extensive Dance background in such as: Afro-Caribean, Galipso, Brasilian Samba, Axe, Afro Samba, Soca, Punta, African, Flamenco, Ballet, Jazz, modern, Batucada, Bachata, Cha-cha, Merengue, and quebradita, Dancing has always been my passion!  
I moved to Chicago in 2003 and found a variety of dance companies that I joined, trained, re-take dance classes to become a better dancer such as Joel Hall Dance Center Chicago, Old Town School of Folk Music, Ballet Chicago, Latin Street Dancing, Dance Revolution, Ballet Folklorico de Victor Soria, Samba Dance Group,Chicago Samba, Edilson Lima Dance Lessons, Dill Costa Dance Instructions, and dance group with Folia Tropicalia, Estampa Colombiana Dance Company, Urvan Vibe, and Jose Serrano Teams. I have had the opportunity to perform and compete throughout The United States, South America and Canada. I started teaching Dance, created  my own dance group  2007. Also, I became a Choreographer and Director of Nica Dance Group, which performs a variety of Latin Dance and traditional folkloric dances from my country and Latin America. In 2008, I placed second in the annual  "Queen of Samba in Chicago" contest that is sponsored by the well known band, Chicago Samba. That same year, I participated in the Central American pageant of Illinois and represented by homeland as Senorita Nicaragua.  After dancing all these years in 2010 I found something that completely changed my life and that is called ZUMBA!!!!!!!......
Not only has it brought happiness to my life, but it has opened a door to see beyond just dancing.  Getting certified in Zumba has brought me into the realm of fitness instruction, which I thoroughly enjoy.  Now I am certified in fitness and personal training as well and teach different formats.  Zumba is dancing and exercising combined together; it brings good health and a world of happiness. I keep learning each day. I keep training to become a better dancer and a better Instructor. Despite all my previous experience with dancing, Zumba has made me healthier and a stronger dancer than ever before. In fact, in November 2012, I again competed in the Chicago Queen of Samba contest and I won the "Queen of Samba in Chicago."  Come check out my classes, anyone and everyone is welcome! You don't have to know how to dance.​ I'll be right next to you by your side helping you to become a better dancer.
Available for group lessons, dance private lessons, Quinceaneras, weddings, birthday parties, dance parties. etc...
