WHAT IS YOUR DANCING BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE?
I danced competitively from the age of 4 until my senior year of high school. I also cheered on my middle school team for 3 years and my high school team for 4 years. While in college at the University of South Carolina, I danced for three years on the Carolina Girls Dance Team and was co-captain my last year on the team.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO AUDITION FOR DCC? Beyond my dreams of dancing on one of the largest of stages and utilizing my passion for personal therapy, I auditioned because this organization gives women a platform and a microphone to advocate for personal issues, and teaches by example what it means to have a brand, build it, and nurture it. The women who have worn the uniform before me have influenced little girls around the world and I’m so excited to have the opportunity to do the same!
