WHAT IS YOUR DANCING BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE? I started dancing at the age of 2 and competing at the age of 4. I competed my first dance solo at the age of 5. I trained in all styles of dance. I also was on my high school dance team and cheerleading squad. I competed at my dance studio up until I graduated high school at the age of 17. I taught dance and also choreographed for one year after graduating. I love being able to share my passion, training, and love for dance with others.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO AUDITION FOR DCC? I decided to audition for DCC because I wanted to continue dancing and DCC is the most iconic and well-known professional dance team there is. After my senior year in high school, the DCC recruiter reached out to me on my social media, and after talking to her, I was ready to make my dream of becoming a DCC a reality. I look up to all the past and present DCCs and I am honored to be a part of this team and call them my teammates. I love performing at AT&T stadium for all of the Cowboy’s fans, it is a dream come true!!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT BEING A PART OF DCC? What I like most about being a part of DCC is the team bond and relationships formed. All the girls are genuine, helpful and kind. They are all rooting for each other and genuinely want to see each other succeed. This special and unique sisterhood among all cheerleaders is like nothing I have ever experienced before. I feel extremely blessed to be dancing beside such amazing, strong, hard-working and unique women that I look up to so much!
PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT: My proudest accomplishment so far is coming to Dallas by myself at the age of 18 and chasing my dream of becoming a DCC. It taught me that if you put your mind to something and work hard enough, you can achieve anything.
IN 10 YEARS FROM NOW I WILL … In ten years from now I will be a DCC alumni. My sister and I will own a dance studio together. I will continue to dance through teaching and sharing my passion and love for dance with others. I will also be married and starting a family of my own. I cannot wait to be a mom and have kids, it’s something that I have always looked forward to. I also see a family dog or two in my future.
