What is your dance/performance background: I was a competitive dancer in solo’s, duets, trios, small/large groups which included jazz, ballet, lyrical, modern, contemporary, and open for 15 years. I was also a dancer with The Young Canadians for 7 years. Currently a team member of the Calgary Stampeder Outriders for the past 4 years!
Why did you decide to audition for the Outriders: I wanted to continue my dance education, and as I’ve always admired the Outriders I felt it was the right decision. I had heard from various friends that the Outriders were not only a team, it was like a family and the experiences you gained from the team were unimaginable. I also love that being an Outrider gives you an opportunity of being an ambassador for the Calgary Stampeders, CSEC, and the city of Calgary.
What is your top Outriders appearance to attend: Our Alberta Children’s Hospital visits.
Favorite charity: I have too many favorites so here are my top 4: Brown Bagging for
Calgary Kids, Closer to Home, and Kids Upfront. All of these charity organizations help to ensure that the kids of Calgary have everything they need, whether that be food, loving support systems and families that are close to them, or experiences they’ve always dreamed of being a part of. As well as AARCs.
Favorite game day song: Anything with a good beat
Favorite style of dance: Street jazz or anything sassy!
Favorite thing about Calgary: I love that Calgary has big city vibes while still being so close to the mountains.
Favorite pastime: Anything to keep me active as well as hanging out with friends and family
