Up until now, we write off or dismiss the physical anxiety symptoms by telling ourselves that somehow this is the price we pay to make the world a better place, one dancer at a time. In this episode Tiffany Henderson, owner of seven dance studios and creator of Twinkle Star Dance explores the impact of continued stress and anxiety on us and what we can do to change for the better and for our health.
Who does Tiffany Henderson think she is? Above all? Experienced. She’s the successful owner of nine Tiffany’s Dance Academy locations with over 2500 students and enrollment of over 4000. She produces two Holiday Shows and four Nutcracker’s each December, a professional dance performance each March, and her 300 performing company dancers participate in 4 convention competitions and a Nationals competition each season.

She continued her professional studies at the prestigious School of Dance at the University of Arizona, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.F.A. in Dance in 1997.
