Tina Stasny brought the go-go craze to the Midwest after seeing The World Famous Pontani Sisters perform their Go-Go act in 2002. She taught weekly classes at the Flamenco Arts Center from 2005-2007, and founded Chicago's first go-go dance troupe, The Janes. Her dance credentials include a minor in Phys. Ed at Purdue University, master classes with Lar Lubovitch and Twyla Tharp, and bellydancing since 1997 under the instruction of Jasmin Jahal, Stephanie Barto, and Princess Farhana of Hollywood. Tina has been go-go dancing professionally in clubs since 1987 and has taught numerous workshops around Chicagoland (including the Old Town School). From West African to Mexican Zapateado, Tina has dabbled in every type of dance and thus lends her diverse dance experience to this modern form.
