Meet the Top 20 (June 27, 2012)Edit
Tiffany is called in to get the news whether she's in the Top 20 or not first before fellow jazz dancer Audrey Case. The judges tell her that she was kind of invisible for most of them, but came out from behind at the right time. Debbie then tells her she's made it to the Top 20. She dances a jazz routine with Audrey. The piece was danced to "Sail" by Awolnation and choreographed by Sonya Tayeh. Guest judge Zooey Deschanel praises Tiffany for being strong and embodied. Nigel tells the pair that although he thinks they'll do well, they will have some tough competition.

Mary tells Tiffany that although she may be little, she has the strength to make it look so effortless and that they connected with each other. Guest judge Kenny Ortega praises Sonya for her choreography. He tells the pair that they were breathtaking to watch. Nigel thought they did a great job and called it 'superb dancing'.
Week 2 (July 18, 2012)Edit
Tiffany and partner George danced a foxtrot by Tony Meredith and Melanie LaPatin to "I Want to Be Loved by You" by Sinéad O'Connor. Mary praises the pair, saying that the foxtrot is a difficult ballroom piece because it's so slow and it has specific footwork, and she thought George and Tiffany danced it very well. She praises Tiffany, telling her it just seemed like it was a perfect fit. Guest judge Adam Shankman also praises the couple, telling them that he was "madly in love with that!". It brought him back to everything he loved about the 40's, and that it was so elegant, graceful, and incredible. Nigel tells the two that they make a great partnership and have showed every other couple on the show how to connect with each other and with the audience.
