One of my greatest achievements has been becoming a dance teacher to children of all ages. Although being a teacher is not always easy, the truth is it’s very rewarding and enjoyable. Dance is my absolute passion! Becoming a Miami HEAT Dancer has given me the opportunity to learn new things. I am grateful to both our coach, Natalia, and my colleagues because they’ve all pushed me to be better and have helped me grow into the professional dancer that I am today. Working with them has allowed me to experience the vast variety of training they’ve had in different companies, studios and schools. Being exposed to all of this has guided my professional growth, not just as a dancer but as a teacher as well. I’ve been able to apply what I’ve learned and implement the advice I’ve been given to improve my teaching style.
Brittany: Growing up here in Miami I developed a desire to be a sports and entertainment reporter/host. I took my inspiration to the University of Central Florida where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in radio and television. I have since become a freelance editor for various YouTube channels and other social media sites focusing on entertainment and beauty. My clients send me their video footage and I edit and piece it all together. When I edit it feels like I’m completing a puzzle – I really enjoy utilizing the skills I’ve learned and adding my own creative flair to it!
This season, one of the Orlando Magic’s dancers will be joining in on the All-Star fun. Nicole F., who has been a Magic Dancer since 2012 and is a team leader on this year’s squad, was selected to be part of the 2017 NBA All-Star Dance Team. “When I found out I had the opportunity to represent the Orlando Magic at NBA All-Star Weekend, I was more than excited,” Nicole said. “I feel so blessed and honored to represent our organization, my teammates and coaches. It feels amazing to have so much support from them. I can’t wait.”
