I would like to extend a cheerful welcome to each and everyone of you visiting this site. Here's a little cheer and dance info. about me
I am currently the Head Coach for the University of Kentucky Dance Team. I am also an ICU and Worlds Judge, coach, choreographer, and speaker for both cheerleading and dance. I started my cheer career at Leestown JH and then went on to cheer at Bryan Station HS. I danced on the original UK Dance Cat squad and then became a two-time UCA National Champion cheerleader for the University of Kentucky Wildcats. I was an instructor for NCA during this time as well.
In 1989, I opened the first All-Star Cheerleading facility in KY. and called it CHEERS! Inc. CHEERS! won the NCA Jr. All-Star National Title 5 years in a row, plus won the NDA National Championship in the Sr. All-Star Dance division.
I coached the University of Kentucky White cheer squad for a year and organized and coached the UK Wildcat Danzers, the ’95 NDA Collegiate National Champions, for 8 years. I organized and coached the KY. Thoroughbabes and Mini-Babes (Dancers for the Thoroughblades Ice Hockey team) and organized and coached the original Dugout Danzers for the KY. Legends Baseball team. I was featured in the Premier issue (Fall 2004) of the CHEERBIZ news magazine. I speak and judge for both cheer and dance competitions all over including Japan.
This will be the 15th year I have hosted the CHEERS! for the HOLIDAYS! Cheer, Dance and Step Competition. If you have attended in the past, I'd like to say, "Thank you!" If you haven't attended, I'd like to say, "Welcome!"
Please feel free to contact me about anything... even if you just need a second opinion about something. I'm only an email or phone call away.
