What is your favorite dancing TV show? “World of Dance.”

What is your desired location to go as a dance individual? “Florida.”

Individual awards you may have received? “My freshman year the team voted me the most improved incoming dancer.”

What is it like to be a leader on the dance team at Ashwaubenon High School? “As one of four leaders, I have to demonstrate what needs to be done, help keep the team on task during practice and help lead the warm-ups.”

How can people stay in dance after they graduate high school or college? “There are tryouts available for most dance teams at any college they choose to attend, as well as studio classes to take.”

What is your most embarrassing moment ever in dance? “When we were doing fan drills across the floor to warm-up kicks. There was a wet spot that I slipped on and fell flat on the floor.”

What is a typical week like for you in relation to practice and live routines? “Monday mornings I have to make sure I have all my practice clothing, so I don’t forget them throughout the week. Then it is practice Monday through Friday. On Saturdays that we have competitions – it’s typically an early morning somewhere between 5:30 – 7 a.m. that we have to be up and at the school to get ready and eat breakfast as a team.”

What is your most memorable moment? “It was the announcement of D1 Kick State Champs. They announced second place and then went right in to say ‘aaaaand…. our D1 Kick State Champs areeeeeee…..’ and then it felt like forever until they announced Ashwaubenon. It seemed as everything was in slow motion as tears rolled down faces and then having to quickly run up to get our picture taken. The moment went by so fast.”

What’s the hardest part about performing in a dance routine? “Standing in formation waiting for the music to turn on.”

If you could be someone for a day, who would it be? “I would like to be my mom for a day. I want to see how she views things.”

Do you have a nickname or something a teammate calls you during a performance? “I’m typically called Meg by my teammates and coaches.”

What is one thing that other teammates or coaches don’t know about you? “I don’t think they know how much they have shaped my life and my appreciation for them.”

What are your college aspirations? “I am planning to go to either NWTC or Fox Valley to attend their dental program.”

What is your favorite thing to do on your phone? “I like to Snapchat my friends and family.”

What three words describe you? “Loyal, determined, organized.”

What is your favorite trip ever taken? “It was to Yellowstone with my family.”

What is the one song you like to perform to? “Vegas Girl by Connor Maynard – our D1 kick routine for 2017-2018.”

What is your favorite dance move in a competition? “Pike toe-touch.”

What is your favorite outfit or uniform to perform in? “Our pom costume from this year.”

Which do you prefer – an outside performance in front of thousands during winter or an indoor performance in front of a few people? “I would prefer outside in front of thousands during winter. I can push through the cold weather for a couple of minutes. It is difficult to get into a dance when there isn’t a lot of people to perform for.”
