Tatam's love of dancing started when she was 3, specialising in tap, jazz, acrobatics and ballet. She loved the freedom it gave her to express herself. She became a very accomplished dancer, competing in CSTD competitions, often placing well within many eisteddfords.
As Tatam turned her talents to teaching, she saw how dance could help others of , and looked to develop programs to bring dance to the wider community. It was at this point she was approached to develop a program for children with disabilities, to open up the potential of their bodies and find new ways to express what they were feeling.
To be the best at this, Tatam became a support worker, learning as much as she could to bring the best to her clients. It was at this point Tatam realised that dance should be available for everyone, and dance inclusion was born.
As Tatam's father was a musician and her mother also a dancer and dance teacher broadway and music from the 40's, 50's , 60's and 70 's has played a crucial role in music choices for the program . Fred , Tatam's father suffered a major stroke at the age of 52 years therefore developed a keen understanding for communication difficulties and dementia .Tatam spent a lot of time in and out of aged care and facilities with her father and constantly thinking about the next development of dance, and how it can help people. Dance inclusion also provides classes at many aged care facilities and dementia wings .
