Tren’s distinctive dance style makes you stop right in your tracks to observe the preciseness of her moves, her animated smile, energy and enjoyment of the dance.

She has competed and placed within the top 5 of some of the most recent Champion Jack and Jill and Strictly Swing competitions in the country.
