Sarah

Hudson

High School Attended: Sweet Home High School

College Attending: University At Buffalo

How many years have you been a

part of the TDA Family: 13

What was your first class at TDA? Combo with Miss Mel

What is your favorite style or genre of dance? Tap or Jazz

What was your favorite dance: Sittin' On The Dock + Above The Cathedral

What was your least favorite costume: Up On The Ridge

What is the funniest memory you have involving TDA: When my team and I were at dinner after competition

and Ella thought Belgian waffles were "Belgium" waffles and made with something called "belgium".

What have you learned while at TDA that will aid you in life? You can't always control what will happen to

you or when it will happen. The best thing you can do during the rough times is to always look for the positives

and do what you can with the situation given.

Can you describe a tough or challenging time you overcame while at TDA? Senior year. This year I have

been forced to learn patience and how to stay positive. Facing an injury just two days before my UB audition and

not knowing if I will ever be able to compete with my team again or dance in my senior recital contributed to

this.

What is your advice to young dancers? Even on the days when you don't "feel" like going to class... go. You

never know when you won't be able to go anymore. The time you have at the studio, whether its 10 years of 2

years goes by way to fast.

What role will dance play in your future? Dance will always be a part of my life. I will be studying dance at UB

for the next 4 years and after that, I will see where the road will take me next!



Abby Hankinson

High School Attended: Tonawanda High School

College Attending: University At Buffalo

How many years have you been a part of the TDA Family: 15

What was your first class at TDA? Tiny Tots with Miss Mel

What is your favorite style or genre of dance? Acro or Contemporary/Lyrical

What was your favorite dance: In The Pyramid or my solos this year

What was your least favorite costume: Up On The Ridge

What is the funniest memory you have involving TDA: When I nailed my acro dance or the New York City trip.

What have you learned while at TDA that will aid you in life? I have learned to trust the process and to

always remember that the journey is greater than the destination. You need to fail in order to succeed. As long

as you put in the work it will pay off, no matter how long it takes to see the results.

Can you describe a tough or challenging time you overcame while at TDA? I struggled a lot with my

confidence, but my teachers were able to help me come out of my shell and grow into the person I am today.

Now, I am more confident not only as a dancer but as a person as well.

What is your advice to young dancers? Never give up on yourself. You can do anything you put your mind to.

Be patient with yourself because most of the time the results won't happen overnight. Don't be afraid to take

risks. You need to step out of your comfort zone in order to grow as a dancer.

What role will dance play in your future? I will be majoring in dance at UB in the fall. I hope to use my passion

to teach and inspire others in the future. I want to be able to help young dancers find their passion.

High School Attended: Tonawanda High School

College Attending: SUNY Geneseo

How many years have you been a part of the TDA Family: 12

What was your first class at TDA? Ballet with Miss Kelsey

What is your favorite style or genre of dance? Jazz and Lyrical

What was your favorite dance: First year of jazz to Ghostbusters

What was your least favorite costume: The one that included newsboy caps.

What is the funniest memory you have involving TDA: When we accidentally left a spot for Bella in our

lyrical dance. The catch was that she was never in the class. She was in all the classes before lyrical, so we

thought she had stopped showing up, but she had never been there in the first place.

What have you learned while at TDA that will aid you in life? At TDA, I learned to become more

accepting of different opinions and to be more confident in my own ideas.

What is your advice to young dancers? My advice for young dancers would be: don't be afraid of failing.

Only after hitting rock bottom will you truly understand the importance of your hard work and dedication,

and you will be able to persevere through any challenge.

What role will dance play in your future? Dance will continue to be a part of my life in the future as a way

to exercise, relieve stress, and have fun.
