She went on to full time classical training at the New Zealand School of Dance in Wellington graduating in 2015. While in Wellington Tyler was selected to spend time with the Royal New Zealand Ballet Company until a recurring injury stopped her from being able to dance professionally. After a few years overseas dancing and teaching in Australia and Vienna, she came home to New Zealand and became a qualified dance teacher with the Royal Academy of Dance. Her passion for dance has led her to open up her own school where she hopes she can spread her knowledge and love of all things dance to her students.
