SENIOR ELITE TEAM:
Petra Mallon, 18
1st year: Senior
Hi guys! My name is Petra and I am 17 years old. This is my first year dancing with the senior elite team, however I have been dancing on the Waunakee Varsity Dance team for the past three years and am currently one of the team captains for this year. This being said, I have competed on both varsity hip hop and varsity pom, making it to state for two years for hip hop. I am a senior at Waunakee High School and hope to pursue a career in either law or secondary education. I hope to also continue my dancing through either a collegiate dance team or a club team wherever I decide to go!
The reason I joined dynamic was because of the fun loving atmosphere as well as the quality of the dance training, along with dancing with all my best friends. The dances I am most excited for this upcoming season are small group heels, as well as small group contemporary! However I love training in all styles ranging from hip hop to lyrical. If I had to pick a favorite style of dance, however, I would pick contemporary, because of its unique individuality, and also how it allows you to express yourself using different shapes and movements. Some of my interests outside of dance include: shopping, hanging out with friends, working, as well as going to the gym. I am so excited for this year, and can't wait for our first competition!

Rachel Meylor, 18
4th year: Senior
My name is Rachel Meylor. I am 17 years old, a senior at Waunakee High School, and this will be my fourth year dancing with Dynamic Dance Company. I have been dancing since I was 8 years old and am experienced in everything from pointe to hip hop! I personally love to perform a sassy jazz or hip hop routine. I am also a captain on the Waunakee Dance Team and have been on the team all throughout high school. I love dancing at Dynamic Dance because it is a space I get to do what I love with some of my best friends. I also love that I get to be creative and help out in the studio often. Dance has been a huge part of my life for a very long time. I feel that I am so lucky to have found a studio to dance at, that is such an amazing place, with such amazing people who are constantly pushing me to be the best that I can be. I am really looking forward to my upcoming and last dance season with Dynamic.

Carrie Komar, 17
3rd year: Senior
My name is Carrie Komar. I am 17 years old and a senior at Waunakee High School. This will be my 3rd year dancing with Dynamic Dance Company. I started dancing when I was 3, but then quit and became an all-star cheerleader and gymnast. At the age of 12 I came back to dance because I missed it, I know now that was 100% the right decision. I love every kind of dance but my favorite is contemporary. I hope to further my dance education in college as well. When I am not dancing I love to hang out with my friends, take naps, and go shopping.
I choose to become a part of the Dynamic Dance Company Senior Elite Team because I get to dance with my friends one last year as well as get the training I need to grow as a dancer. I am really looking forward to this year’s season!
Morgan Gavinski, 17
1st year: Senior
My name is Morgan Gavinski. I am 17 years old and have been dancing since I was three. I am currently a senior at Verona Area High School and I am the captain of their Varsity Dance Team for this season. This is my first season at Dynamic Dance Company. I chose to come to Dynamic because I know I will get pushed and receive all the proper training that I will need in order to potentially dance on a collegiate team. For this upcoming season, I am most excited to go spend time with my teammates at competitions and get to do what we love most, dance. When I'm not dancing, I like to spend time with friends and family, going to baseball games, and boating on Castle Rock Lake. Next fall, I hope to attend college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison while majoring in elementary education. I also hope to find a dance program in Madison so that I am able to keep advancing my dance skills.
Stella Young, 16
2nd year: Junior
I am Stella Young, a member of the Senior Elite Team. I am currently a Junior in at Waunakee High School and this is my second year on the team. I’ve been dancing since I was 3 years old at Kehl School of Dance and Spotlight Dance Academy. I also am a Captain of the Waunakee High School Varsity Dance Team. From learning every style of dance out there, Modern/Contemporary would have to be my favorite. It’s such a unique style that amazes me every time I watch it and it allows you to create such articulate movement with every part of your body. The past 13 years of dance has taught me many life skills such as time management, responsibility, and most importantly that success is achieved through hard work and determination. I am ecstatic to grow as a dancer at Dynamic Dance Company and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for this team.

Lata Vervoort, 14
1st year: Freshman
My name is Lata Vervoort. I am 14 years old, and attend Waunakee High School as a freshman. I started dancing because I was in gymnastics when I was younger. I started dancing with acro when I was in 5th grade. When I first started I had no idea what other types of dance's there are, but along the way I figured it out. I have done ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, pom, and hip hop in my whole time I've experienced dance. My favorite type of dance is ballet because I like the movement and the expressions in the dance. I now dance at Dynamic and enjoy it. I enjoy dancing at Dynamic Dance because I feel comfortable and it's a safe place I can go. It's like a second home, even though it's my first year. I know I can count on anyone that is a part of DDC for help.
