Who is Tatiana McQuay?
What do you do when you realize you’re too young to join a dance studio that could mold your hobby into a career? You might wait till you’re eligible whilst working hard for this new found passion. But according to a recent interview, here’s what Tatiana McQuay claims to have done at age 3, when she found out that the criterion to join was age 4 and above - she pretended that her birthday was months earlier than her date of birth. Yep. Shocking that a young child could think this way, (Or could it be an insider job done by her folks?) but talk about wanting something so bad that you’re not going to let your age stop you.
Tati, as she is also called, first stepped into the world of dance at the age of 2. Her impressive dance moves forced her mom to find the right dance studio so Tatiana could one day perform on International stage. And now this little queen of Hip Hop is doing just that. Way to go, Tati!
The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
Popular all over social media platforms, McQuay is now a well-known face when it comes to dance and all things swag. This fame didn’t just come her way, she started her venture when she was just 2 and she’s still on the mission to become the best. Not just dancing, little Tati is also an exceptional singer and rapper. She was seen singing and rapping in her videos titled ‘IT Courageous’, and ‘IT Play Hard’, when she was barely 10 years old.
Like every other teen her age, Miss McQuay grew up idolizing pop icon Justin Bieber and the yesteryear girl band ‘Spice Girls’. She would look at all her Bieber posters on the wall, one day hoping to meet him in person. And unlike every other teen, this young girl actually got the chance to meet her idol. Not just meet him, she was also one of Bieber’s back-up dancers for his concert. That is one hell of a dream come true!
Tatiana is now part of a girl band that is all about spreading the message of Girl Power. Her band of 5 girls, called ‘L2M’ (Listen 2 Music), is slowly making waves all over. The girls generally dance and sing to the songs that relate to the anthem of this generation’s girl empowerment. The band’s inspiration is none other than ‘Spice Girls’ and artists like Meghan Trainor. We can’t wait to see what the girls have in store for us!
