WHAT IS YOUR DANCING BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE? I began dancing at the age of 2. I spent 17 years training in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, musical theatre styles. I spent 10 of those years competing in dance company. During high school, I was also a member in their professional performing company which performed at various corporate events around the metroplex. I loved attending dance conventions to work with different choreographers and to compete with my company. I was also a dance teacher during my high school years teaching ballet and tap to elementary dancers. Currently, I am taking classes at The Joffrey Ballet School in Dallas to keep training in ballet and jazz. I am so grateful to be a DCC to continue my passion of performing on the best stage in the NFL alongside the most amazing women.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO AUDITION FOR DCC? I was very fortunate to grow up around the DCC! I spent every summer in Camp DCC and many years as a Jr. DCC. Watching and learning from the DCC as a little girl I knew I wanted to be a DCC because I loved the sparkle of the iconic uniform and getting to dance with pom poms. As I got older, I began to see how they made a difference in the lives of others – USO tours, hospital visits, nursing homes, waving to fans at the games, being a positive role model, etc and I knew I loved the organization even more. I wanted to be part of the DCC because I respect the organization and I feel very protective of it. It has been a dream of mine since my very first Camp DCC in 2004.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT BEING A PART OF DCC? I love EVERYTHING about being a part of the DCC! But what I love the most is knowing I have so many great experiences ahead of me with this organization. I promise to cherish every single one of them! AND I absolutely love experiencing this journey with 35 of the most beautiful and supportive sisters who push me to be a better me.
PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT: My proudest accomplishment is inspiring others. When I read or hear that my DCC journey inspired another to not give up and work hard for what they want, my heart tingles with happiness. It is amazing that such a dark time in my life turned into something positive in the end.
IN 10 YEARS FROM NOW I WILL … look back on my 20’s and say well done – A++++ – because I plan to live life to its fullest these next 10 years!
