Life in Dance and Beyond

Tina Yedgarian, the woman behind TINUSHKA DANCE, began by working to be the best ballerina that she could be. She started dancing at age nine, and grew up taking ballet, modern, jazz, ballroom, folk, and contemporary ballet classes. 

Long before her online store, she participated in classic performances such as “Gayane,” “Hansel and Gretel,” “The Nutcracker,” “The Snow Queen,” and “Thumbelina.” Back in her day, people had to go on a long drive just to buy proper dance apparel. 

She started selling dancewear because she knew too well what it’s like to attend rehearsals here and there while squeezing in personal workouts.

Tina participated in Miss California USA in 1992 representing City of Glendale. Tina has a Bachelor 's degree in Health Science from California State University, Long Beach. Her marriage has been blessed with three charming boys and a lovely girl. Tina has been an active dancer up to this day.
