Melba Ayco assumed responsibility for TTAAPP (Talent, Tap, Acting, Arts, Performance and Production) Central after its founder, Darrlyn Cook-Smith, passed away in 2002. For Melba Ayco, a twenty year veteran of the Seattle Police Department, TTAAPP Central is more than just a tap dance studio reintroducing a traditional African American art form. She also instructs the students, ages 4 and up, in the importance of commitment, and how wrong choices can lead to unpleasant consequences. TTAAPP Central is one big family for Ayco, a self described Louisiana country girl.
