SCC's Center Stage Director, Michael Disher, offers advanced scene study and monologue acting classes for all ages at SCC.
Tamara grew up in Southampton and performed on stage for the first time when she was 3 years old. She quickly caught the performing bug and participated in theatre, musical, and dance productions throughout the South Fork until she went to college. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Stony Brook University in English Literature with a focus on American Plays and a Masters of Science in Educational Theatre from The City College of New York. She has worked as a teaching artist and assistant director with Stages: A Children's Theatre Workshop Inc, and created educational theatre programming for Playful Learning Studio in East Hampton. She has performed in productions with Stages, Our Fabulous Variety Show, and Center Stage at The Southampton Cultural Arts Center. She has taught theatre skills and theatre integration at the Brooklyn High School for the Performing Arts, the Magnet School for Media and Communications, and PS 161.
Teaching theatre allows Tamara to teach in any kind of space, no desks needed!, teach all subjects through theatre, and teach all ages of children. Tamara encourages creativity, imagination, and collaboration in her students while helping them build artistic skill and often their academic skills as well.
She spends most of her free time chasing her precocious toddler, cooking with her husband of 5 years, swimming, and traveling to Broadway.
