FINISH THIS STATEMENT:
I am most proud of ... graduating Summa Cum Laude from Clemson University this past May. Being a member of the Rally Cat dance team while undertaking nursing school was definitely a challenge, but every bit of stress and every sleepless night was worth it on graduation day.
WHAT IS YOUR DANCING BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE?
My mom put me into my first dance class when I was 2 years old, and I haven't stopped dancing. I danced and competed with a studio throughout elementary and middle school, then joined my high school dance team and several all-star competition teams. While attending Clemson University, I was a member of the Rally Cats for four years. We danced at football and basketball games and competed at NDA Nationals every spring.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO AUDITION FOR DCC?
I have wanted to audition for DCC since I was in high school. From the moment I first saw them perform, I was enthralled by their power, elegance, beauty and ability to entertain. My mom said I had to obtain a college degree before I could try out. After watching videos and researching information for four years, my senior year of college finally arrived. I checked the DCC website on a daily basis waiting for the 2012 audition date to be posted.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE WHO DREAMS OF BECOMING A DCC?
The best advice I can give someone who dreams of becoming a DCC is that it's never too early to start preparing and most importantly to believe in yourself. It's easy to get to tryouts and start second-guessing yourself. However, you have to stay true to yourself, allowing your talent and hard work to shine.
