Tiffany Henderson, Owner/Director has loved dance since she was eight years old. Her first exposure to dance was at Carol Dunn’s Dance Studio. Miss Dunn’s studio began as a converted room in her house that happened to be right next door to Tiffany’s house. As a young girl, Tiffany would climb up on an old wooden picnic table in her backyard and peek over the fence at Miss Dunn’s classes. Eventually, her father bought her a pair of tap shoes so she could tap dance along with the class on the table.

Finally, her folks let her join the class, and the rest is history…

She has performed professionally with the Arizona Dance Ensemble at the Kennedy Center, in Washington D.C. She has also performed as far away as Amsterdam, and Japan.

Tiffany’s goal is to provide professional, fun training in all the disciplines of dance.
