Tiffany’s Dance Academy Founder, Tiffany Henderson, was elated by the news. “This is an amazing opportunity to study at one of the top dance schools in the nation. I am very proud of her accomplishment.”
Tiffany's Dance Academy offers professional training for dancers ages two through adult in Classical Ballet, Tap, Jazz, and Hip Hop. Millie Hanson has been dancing since she was three years old, but moved to Tiffany’s Dance Academy just a year ago. “To dance is amazing. When I dance I feel weightless and powerful. Taking the audience along to share the movement and emotion is an exhilarating feeling. I am always thankful to have a passion and never take it for granted” the 18 year old said.
She continued, “I’m so thankful to have been able to follow my passion for dance at Tiffany’s. It is bittersweet to think of leaving Tiffany’s Dance Academy. I will miss my studio routine, but I am also excited to move on to new dance challenges at the University of Arizona. I want to thank all my teachers over the years. They have given me so much and I want them to know I truly value all of it.”
