Tamar started swing dancing in May of 1999 in South Florida. It was only a matter of time before ballroom and Latin dancing captured her interest as well. Traveling to exchanges and workshops allowed Tamar to continue her own education, dotting her dance resume with lessons from some of the world’s top instructors and, eventually, she wanted to provide the music that filled the room as well. In 2004, on the Frankie Manning birthday cruise, Tamar saw a dance she didn’t yet recognize, but she LOVED the music. Blues quickly became a favorite and geeking out over it with friends became a regular occurrence. Although her focus has shifted over the years, singing and DJ-ing great music for dancers are still Tamar’s favorite pastimes. She is so grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the magic that will be Blues n’ Soul V.
