Tatyana's performing career started in high school performing contemporary and russian gypsy dances, singing, and acting at school events. After high school she continued dancing by taking formal training in ballroom dance and studying folkloric russian dance on her own.

Her belly dance journey began with Tina Shokri in Belarus and continued in Minnesota studying with local, national and international performers - Toha, Kathy McCurdy, Aisha Ali, Fahtiem, Dina, Faten Salama and Cassandra and performing locally at private parties, festivals, corporate events and restaurants. In 2006 she became part of Jawaahir Dance Company.
