Teni has her own company ‘The Teni Matian Dance Company’ which focuses on fusing contemporary dance with traditional Armenian dance. The most recent performance ‘Nerdurs’, choreographed by Teni played to sell out audiences in her home country of Armenia.

Teni is also a lecturer at the Institute of Theatre and Cinematography in Armenia. She is currently writing a course in contemporary choreography, the first of its kind in the country.

"My time at Salford opened my mind to the possibilities of performance. I was able to take this knowledge and skill, combine it with existing knowledge of traditional dance styles, and create my own unique performance styles."
