Tessa Hatlelid
Desk Staff

Tessa took a ballet class once when she was five. She cried the whole time, and didn't step foot into another studio until she was 13. She's been doing hip hop ever since.

Tessa was the captain of St. Louis Extreme Dance for one year, leading the team to last place finishes in every competition. She discovered Culture Shock Dance Center when she moved to San Diego, and was a part of Afta Shock for 3 years. She now takes classes in between shifts at the studio desk.

Tessa also works as a freelance graphic designer, with the goal of making enough money to travel the world.
