FILL IN THE BLANK

“When I’m not dancing and I have a free night, I love to go to the store and grab fresh ingredients to make a good stir fry and buy a bottle of Kung fu girl (my favorite white wine from Washington) sounds like my ideal night!

Hot timeouts are my favorite part about dancing at the Moda Center on a game night.”

“The best part of being a BlazerDancer is being a part of the Trail blazers organization! It’s so much more than just being on a dance team to me.  It’s a family that you are a part of forever and I Cherish all the memories made here!

Pinterest is the most used app on my phone.”
