A big opportunity for dancers
Nine members of Dance-Twirl Minnesota from Farmington and Rosemount will perform at the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Fla. on Jan. 2, 2017. Farmington twirlers are Jocelyn Byrnes, Ally Auger, Kate Auger and Sophie Seegar. Rosemount twirlers are Maren Powell, Macie Riste, Allie Ostrum, Ava Karl, Briel Green and Nicole Nelson. “Opportunities such as performing at a major bowl game don’t present themselves very often and the benefits to kids are amazing,” coach Jacinda Miller said. “Students that perform in front of this large of an audience find that their confidence and self-esteem soars.” In preparation for their trip, students will participate in fundraising, performances and team-building activities throughout summer and fall.
