Season with the Drill Crew: 5th
Occupation: Clinical Administration
What is your dance/performance background: I started dancing at the age of 9 after my mom showed me a flyer of a local neighborhood dance studio in our mailbox. After joining a once-a-week 45 min jazz class, I quickly became very dedicated and wanted to do more. I proceeded to do competitive dance for the next 8 years and then became a certified dance teacher. Shortly after completing my final year of formal dance competition, I had the opportunity to dance professionally. I started my professional dance career at 18 where I performed at Calaway Amusement Park with the Calaway Live Cast. During this time, I also auditioned for the Roughnecks Drill Crew and came in as the youngest rookie on the team that year. Since then, I have continued to dance with the Calgary Roughnecks Drill Crew and later joined the Calgary Stampeder Outriders.
What is your favourite part about being on the Drill Crew Dance Team? My teammates! We have an amazing group of passionate dancers that are committed to cheering on and supporting our Calgary Roughnecks as well as each other. Every single one of us strives to entertain the fans with intense, hard-hitting choreography that requires perseverance and skill to synchronously look impressive as an entire team. Also props to our amazing coach Kalie who always makes us look good!
