Tamera Matene

Tamera Matene, a dancer from Stratford, has been given the opportunity to travel to the United States and learn from some of the world’s best choreographers.

She received $6,589 from the Mazda Foundation to fund her attendance at the World Class Dance Tour of New York and Orlando, which will allow her to attend classes with choreographers and immerse herself in Broadway shows in New York City.

The tour, which aims to help young dancers pursue a career in dance by putting them in touch with industry professionals, will be extremely valuable for Tamera’s future in the industry.
