Drag King, Lex Contralata had this to say...

"Maribeth is a creative, passionate and supportive teacher/choreographer, I was so lucky to get to work with her! She helped me create an unforgettable performance and my voguing improved tremendously. Maribeth was able to create choreography that was challenging, but still within my skill level and it looked fantastic! Maribeth is amazing at what she does and was fantastic to work with!"

Dance Teacher, Stephanie O. had this to say...

"Maribeth is a passionate dancer and a great resource. She has a plethora of knowledge on all styles of street dance. Through oral and physical teaching, she is able to convey the history of dance styles to youth thus honouring and keeping dance alive in our community. She understand her audience and knows how to interact and inspire her dancers. We had the pleasure of hosting her in our studio for a series of workshops. Dancers left inspired and reenergized from the energy that was shared by an amazing dancer in our community!"

Teacher, Nancy E. had this to say...

"From House to Hip Hop, Maribeth Tabanera is not only a master of guiding a class through a creative sequence of dance moves but also of articulating the history and origins of the style. With a fun, energizing warm up she breaks down the essence of the moves and reinforces them in her original choreography. We are so fortunate to have Maribeth here in Winnipeg, sharing her innovative talent in the world of dance."

Dance enthusiast, George T. had this to say...

"The person in the red jacket [Maribeth Tabanera as the Waacking Lady in the Artist Within] seemed to be in a rich private trance of dance expression that involved every area of their being. As a dancer....a more complete integration of body and soul could scarcely be imagined. They amazed and excited me as a performer. They ARE the music while they're dancing. possessed by it, in the best kind of way."
