WHAT IS YOUR DANCING BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE?
I started dancing at 10, was a dance officer on my high school drill team, and Captain of the Aggie Dance Team. I am now going into my 4th year as a DCC.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO AUDITION FOR DCC?
I decided to audition for DCC because I was not ready to stop dancing. I knew that if I was going to continue pursuing my passion, I wanted to dance with the best. DCC is more than a group of women who come together and dance, they are a group of accomplished, intelligent, and strong women who continue to impact others daily!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT BEING A PART OF DCC?
So far, I have loved being a part of something so much greater than myself. I love that I have the opportunity to represent America’s Team, and I love how there are so many women before me that have led such a great path to success. Being a part of this organization, I have not only grown as a dancer, but as a woman, and for that I am eternally thankful!
Most recently, I decided to raise money for teachers in low-income areas in order to support the kiddos in their classroom. My goal was to purchase all or most items on each teachers’ amazon wish list in hopes that they are able to provide supplies and education that their students deserve.
IN 10 YEARS FROM NOW I WILL …
Hopefully be settled down with a family, still teaching, and putting in plans to open a studio that is partially competitive dance and partially dance therapy for special needs students.
