Hi! I am Tanaya Williams and I live for gymnastics! I have been in the gymnastics business for my entire life. I participated in gymnastics, dance, cheerleading, and track throughout my school years. I began coaching in my father's gym when I was very young and just never stopped! My father was a competitive gymnast, trampolinist, and circus performer. He was also my coach for most of my childhood. I owe my passion for the sport and for teaching to him!
I am a lifelong learner and have studied three major areas in college that I apply in my work daily – Elementary Education, Health and Human Performance, and Business Management. Besides formal college studies, I have numerous other certifications and course completions. Some of which include -
· USA Gymnastics National Instructor
· American Heart Association CPR/First Aid Instructor
· USAG Safety and Risk Management Certification
· USOC SafeSport Certified
· National Youth Sports Coaching Academy Certified
· Positive Coaching Alliance Double Goal Coach Certified
· Stewards of Children – Recognizing and Responding to Child Abuse and Neglect
and, the Florida Department of Children and Families 40 hour Child Care Facility Training.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Scott, and we have an amazing daughter, Perisa! You will see both of them in the gym with me almost daily.
Hi! I am Perisa Williams, Miss Tanaya's daughter! I have been doing gymnastics since I was a baby and have competed up through Level 7. Now I do gymnastics just for fun! I love coaching and spend my time in the gym teaching preschool classes, summer camp, Aerial classes, and our competitive team. My favorite gymnastics events are beam and floor.
I am a Senior in high school at MIHS and am dual-enrolled at Eastern Florida State College. Besides taking advanced academic courses, I also run track and cross country, and I pole vault! I have already completed my CDA in Child Care and I plan to teach young children in a VPK classroom. I also love to practice circus skills like aerial silks, trapeze, and lyra. My dream is to be a performer of some sort, maybe in Cirque Du Soleil.
I love my job and wouldn't change it for the world! I love to see all the kiddos in the gym! :)
Hello! My name is Melissa Dundis and I have been involved in the sport of gymnastics almost my entire life; from competing as a youngster, to teaching classes, to coaching a team, to running a facility! I stopped coaching for 3 years when I became a full-time mail carrier for USPS. I really started missing the sport I spent my life cultivating so I decided it was time to see about getting back into it. As good timing would have it, I found Galactic Gymnastics needing a coach!
I am a technician and like to have a good time in my classes through positive reinforcement, proper technique, and innovation. I have taught preschool through Level 9 women's competitive gymnastics. I believe good basics early on equal safe and productive results whether it’s a class or team situation.
I have been a USA Gymnastics compulsory judge, a USA Gymnastics University Certified Instructor, Meet Director, and have completed the USAG Safety and Risk Management Course. I am also CPR/First Aid trained and certified.
Outside of gymnastics and delivering mail, my other passion is music and I can play several instruments! I also love dogs!
I enjoy working with Tanaya and meeting the growing family here at Galactic Gymnastics. Please don’t be shy about introducing yourself and starting a conversation. I am happy to answer any questions you may have!
Hi! My name is Shaina, I am a professional aerial artist and coach. I have been coaching aerialists for the past 5 years and there is nothing else I would rather be doing. I absolutely love my job! I am a certified instructor through Aerial Physique and recognized by the American Circus educators. My favorite apparatus is silk but you can catch me hanging out on the sling, lyra, trapeze, and aerial cube. You can also see me performing with fire from time to time! I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the Galactic Gymnastics family!
