Tinka Hessenheffer is one of the main protagonists on Dance It Up where she dances on the local teen dance show Dance It Up and a main character on Dance it Up who is Rocky's BFF. She invites Gunther to Texas many times since he loves the city. Tinka is portrayed by Caroline Sunshine. She lives in a house with Ty. She currently dates Ty. She has been an exchange student since the first grade, which is weird because she remembers a lot from home, and was born in a small mountain country in Europe that has never been addressed by name, but referred to many times. 


Tinka is described as a flamboyant, fashionable, unique, weird, theatrical, and ambitious dancer, she is known to insult CeCe and used to insult Rocky any chance she gets but can be nice when she wants to be. She is from a fictional country that has not been mentioned by name, but is often referred to by the twins as they differentiate American traditions from their own. Her taste in attire is loud and catchy and celebrates her love of performing. She became Rocky's BFF due to they spend so much time together after CeCe left the USA along with Shake It Up, Chicago got cancelled. 

Change of Personality Over TimeEdit

  • In Season 1, She is much nicer than the pervious show, Shake It Up. She is BFF with Rocky. She is less weird and fashionable in this season. She is even more smart and confident.
