As a dance teacher, my main goal is to inspire my students to work to the best of their abilities and help them achieve their full potential in dance.

Tatiana Obeso joined Boston Conservatory in 2011 and is a ballet instructor for the theater division.

Upon graduating from the National School of Ballet in Lima, Peru (1991), she was offered a contract to dance for the National Ballet of Peru. After performing and touring with the ballet company, Obeso received a Fellowship of the Americas given by The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. (1996). The prestigious fellowship brought her to the U.S. where she trained and danced with Boston Ballet and Suzanne Farrell Dance Company in Washington, D.C.. Obeso later served as a lead dancer with Margot Parsons Dance Company, Cadence Dance Project, Impulse Dance Company, Ace Entertainment Dance Company, Northern Ballet Company, and The Boston Liturgical Dance Ensemble in several performances and different venues between 1996 and 2005. It was with this last group that Obeso participated in special performances for Pope John Paul II at the World Youth Day in Toronto in 2002.

Obeso's ballroom career started in 2000 when she began training with Studio 665 owner and former National 10 Dance Champion, Mark Nocera. Television appearances, live performances, as well as award-winning coaching, judging, and choreographing have marked her ballroom and Latin dance career. Her performance career includes an appearance with renowned musician and performer Billy Joel. Obeso appeared as a coach on TLC's Dancing Tweens, as a performer and judge on MTV's Made, and as a performer at the Boston Tree Lighting Ceremony (2007), broadcast by Channel 5. She was also involved as a coach and judge in the collegiate ballroom dancing circuit, coaching the renowned Tufts University Ballroom Team. Obeso created and directed the Performing Arts Program at Studio 665, where she offered different dance styles for all ages.

She is a Pilates, and DVIDA certified dance instructor.
