An accomplished professional dancer on the international stage, and one of classical ballet’s greatest ambassadors, Tanju Tuzer was a true artist. The art form flourished in his hands. As a man, he was a craftsman, an avid fisherman, a gardener and a beekeeper. To his core, he was an adventurer and a lover of the human spirit.
As an artistic director and teacher, he was maestro, a brilliant oracle of dance who had a passion for connecting the body to the soul while teaching students, whom he loved dearly. In these young minds, he cultivated tenacity and discipline. Through his commitment, he imbued generations of lives with his strong character. He taught that the true magic of dance was not found in powerful jumps or turns, but in the ability to transcend the mundane and take the audience into a higher, ethereal plane.
Tanju, you have influenced and inspired so many. We miss you dearly but your spirit lives in our hearts. Your voice echos throughout the school and your passion lives on through us.
