“This is an incredible honor, not only for Isabella, but for the entire local dance community” said Tiffany Henderson, founder of the Tiffany Dance Academy. “We are elated to have played a role in shaping Isabella into becoming the beautiful, versatile and extremely talented dancer that she’s become and we couldn’t be more honored to have her represent Tiffany’s Dance Academy (Livermore) as she makes her way to New York to join the elite ranks of dancers from around the country.”
