Getting to Know You: Miss Tiffany!
Written by Joe Naftal on November 12, 2019

Today we are featuring Miss Tiffany in our latest edition of “Getting to Know You”!  The “Getting to Know You” series helps us get to know each of the Dance Connection teachers and staff we get to see at the studio every week and learn a little bit more about them.

Why do you love teaching at Dance Connection? After many years of performing professionally, I love being able to utilize my experience and expertise to train and inspire others. 

What’s the best way for dancers to approach your class?   All dancers should come to my classes prepared to demonstrate passion, purpose and perseverance.

What’s the best way for parents to support their dancers?  Being a mother of a DC dancer, I tell my daughter that the most important thing is to make it about enjoyment before competition. 

What do you do in your spare time? Raising & loving my 3 year old son and 7 year old daughter…..and spoiling my dog, who we rescued several years ago! 

What’s your go-to coffee order? My new favorite is a nitro cold brew with sweet cream.

What’s your favorite vacation spot? That will always be a tie….Barcelona, where I got engaged. And Bora Bora, where my husband & I went on our honeymoon!

What’s your favorite local restaurant? I love H2O!
