Tina and Trinity

Growing up as a professional dancer, Tina knew dancing was a positive and healthy art and sport, so she enrolled Trinity into classes as soon as she was ready. Both Tina and her husband are very supportive of their daughter and do everything they can to be involved with her dance career. Tina wants her daughter to learn and do extremely well in everything she does. Her advice to Trinity for "Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition" is to listen to all details given by the instructors, be assertive and yet humble in auditions and interviews. Tina and Trinity currently reside in Washington.
