Occupation: Dance Instructor, Dance Team Director and Varsity Cheerleading Coach
Member of Dallas Dance Company since 2010
|DDC Dancer Leah Longoria|
How did you hear about DDC? I learned about DDC back in 2004 through my drill team, the McKinney NorthStars. I heard that many dance teachers were members of the Company, which gave me hope that performing after college (while holding a full time job) is possible.
Why did you want to be a part of DDC? I wanted to become a part of the Company to grow even more as a dancer. I had known about DDC for many years, but the timing wasn't ever right to audition. A former DDC member, Shara Barry, expressed that I should perform while I still can and take the chance before life gets in the way. Shara's comment really helped pushed me to take the step to audition.
What's your favorite part of being a member of DDC? I love coming to class and dancing fully and really pushing myself with a variety of choreographic styles. The environment is so supportive. It's a great place to be every Sunday!
