Tanya's Two-Step to Fifteen!

Fifteen Years ago, I packed up my Mini and watched Toronto shrink in the rearview mirror, moving to Austin, Texas, thinking it would be for a year or two.


I fell in love with Austin: the creative spirit that shows itself in music and business captured my imagination and I discovered my inner Texan.

If you are reading this, then YOU are a part of this adventure! You have been invited to this celebration because you played a role in my getting to Texas and/ or you've been a contributor to my happiness here. It may be that you've played a big role, or maybe a small role, regardless, I want you to celebrate with me...what exactly? life and living!! 

I would love if you could join me! So bring your dance partner, or just come to listen to the music and catch up, I hope to see you there! (no RSVP required)

Some Fun Stuff

  • Some of you may remember The Western Express from my 10 year party, they've developed their sound since then, "Flower of the Rio Grande" has gotten well-deserved recognition

  • My fav song by Johann is "Burning Time"

  • The dance instructor, Rick, ran a Fred Astaire dance studio for over 20 years, there isn't a dance he doesn't know how to teach! Check out his YouTube channel. (you might just recognize yours truly in there somewhere)
