Hannah Ermon and Mandy Dudik

Ermon Headshot

Hannah Ermon is an OB/GYN at Baylor Scott & White – Hillcrest. She recently moved to Waco after completing her residency in Washington, D.C. She finds great fulfillment in helping women understand their bodies and empowering them on their health journey. Many of her patients have been impacted by domestic violence, so she is delighted to be able to support the Family Abuse Center through Dancing with the Waco Stars.

Hannah started tap dancing in high school, hoping to be cast in her high school’s musical. Even though she had no previous dance experience, she fell in love with tap, and continued to dance in college as a member of Duke University's tap group, “On Tap.” Life got busy in medical school and residency, so she put her tap shoes away for a while, but she is excited to shake off the dust and strike a rhythm again.

Most importantly, Hannah is a wife to her ever-supportive husband, Andrew, and a mom to her daughter, Charlotte. She can’t wait to enroll Charlotte in her first tap class! 

 Mandy Dudik has been a choreographer and instructor in dance for over 25 years. She teaches tap, ballet, jazz, clogging, and hip hop. Mandy co-owns and operates Rise and Shine Dance in Clifton Texas with her dance partner Danielle Spooner. Their teams have won many regional, state, and national titles. Mandy has been married to her husband Jeff who is a lieutenant for Lake Travis Fire and Rescue for 17 years. They have 2 daughters who are Jessy 8 and Kari 15 years old. Mandy is also a second-grade teacher at Gatesville Elementary School. Her favorite things are serving God, being with her family, working with children, and dancing!
