Hometown: Keller, TX

I decided to join the Belhaven dance team because... I wanted to be more involved on campus and expand my college experience. As a dance major, we are trained in ballet and modern dance techniques. Being on the dance team provides me an outlet to perform jazz and hip hop pieces as well.
