Taya Bio

Taya Agius

Founder & Dance Instructor

Hi! I’m Taya and I am so glad you’ve come to find out more about Sunshine Dance Studios! I have always loved to move my body in ways that made me happy and in grade 9 I found dance. I danced with Windsor Dance eXperience for five years which also gave me a passion for working with people in the community. I later went to the University of Windsor and graduated with an honours degree in Disability Studies. I started dancing with Up About Down Windsor Essex Down Syndrome Association and fell in love with the smiles that the individuals brought into my life and decided that I just had to share it with everyone! I started SDS with the intention to create a safe and fun dancing space as well as an inclusive community. I hope you find something here that suits you, whether it's a dance class or learning something new about disabilities. Wishing you happiness and many rays of sunshine.   ...XO Taya
