Mariah has been teaching for eleven years. She trained in ballet with Ruth Lenny-Midkiff, jazz with her mother, Patty Ogden, and hip-hop with Geo Hubela. Mariah also trained with Gene Medler, founder of NCYTE (North Carolina Youth Tap Ensemble). She was a member of NCYTE during her senior year of high school. Mariah's love for tap has been growing ever since the day she first tried on a pair of tap shoes. Her passion really shows through her teaching and her ability to connect with her students.
Mariah is also a singer/songwriter/musician. She is currently working with a record label and performs all over North Carolina. Mariah continues to sharpen her dance skills by going to conventions like Showstoppers and Dance Life Teacher Conference.
Mariah will be covering for Ms Tiffany's leave of absence this spring 2020. We hope everyone will enjoy having a new teacher for a few weeks until Tiffany is back on her feet again.
