[Ice Skating Tigers] Former TSU Student plays Tiana in Disney on Ice

Disney on Ice Principal Skater Soniah Spence said when she skates the role of Princess Tiana from The Princess and the Frog, she wants the audience “to feel the story I’m telling through my skating.”

The show, Dare To Dream, is set for Sept. 28 until Oct. 2 at Hampton Coliseum.

Spence said she has wanted to skate the part for a long time because Tiana “is like any other person working to reach her goal.”

The story begins with Tiana working as a waitress and wishing she had her own restaurant. The irony for Spence is before she joined Disney on Ice, she was working as a waitress while a student at Tennessee State University.
