Welcome to my happily ever after here in Kauai! My name is Amanda Tanigawa and I am a Florida girl, born and raised. I have been a professional dancer my whole life. I grew up dancing in a ballet company and after graduating High School I moved to Orlando, FL where I danced in shows at Walt Disney World, performed on cruise ships, and was an NBA Dancer. I later moved to Las Vegas to perform in a show called Peepshow that was produced by the award winning broadway producer Jerry Mitchell. I lived in Las Vegas for 9 years and after only living there for one year I was lucky enough to meet my husband. My husband is a Kauai boy, born and raised. Once we had our baby girl we knew we wanted to be closer to family and raise our daughter somewhere amazing, so here we are, living happily ever after in Kauai! Not only am I lucky enough to live in paradise with my family, but I get to make my passion my career by teaching Barre classes at the studio Barre & Soul as well as teaching dance classes at Aloha Dance Studio, all while continuing to share my life with all of you here through my blog!
