Dancer Diary: Meet Haley

  • October 11, 2013

Hey everybody!! My name is Haley, I’m 25 years old and from Farmington. And this is my first year as a Jazz Dancer! Yaya!! I want to show you all the fun things we get do, because it has been one of the greatest experiences of my life… and we haven’t even started games yet! First I’ll tell you a little bit about myself, then I’ll get into the good stuff- life as a Jazz Dancer :) I grew up cheering and dancing, and it’s always been my passion. I love it!! I’ve been dancing since age 3, and started tumbling when I was 5. I was a cheerleader in junior high for 2 years, then cheered...

Kelsey: Game Day Schedule

  • March 1, 2013

I have a secret obsession. It’s a crazy and absurd obsession that many might find weird or slightly obsessive compulsive. My obsession is with logistics! I know you are probably thinking really logistics?! I love to figure out schedules, what time I need to arrive places and plan what time I should leave places to go onto the next place. I think maybe I should have a career in something like air traffic control. :) I love to hear the logistics of people’s days and their “to do lists”.  So I thought I would share what a day in the life of Kelsey is like on a game day. For us dancers we have...

Kelsey: Being Jazz Fit

  • February 1, 2013

Any athlete, no matter the sport, can agree that in order to be an athlete you have to be in your top physical shape. As a dancer, the same saying applies. Why do you think most of the NFL line men take dance classes in their off season?! For coordination and being able to move quickly! As a Jazz dancer we have to be in our top physical shape. Not only to maintain a healthy looking figure but to have a healthy body so we can perform to the best of our abilities.

Kelsey: Happy Holidays

  • January 8, 2013

I hope everyone’s Holidays were happy and safe! Us Jazz girls had an amazing Holiday season! As a team we celebrated the Holidays by going to dinner for one of our practices before Christmas. We went to El Matador in Bountiful, which is a Mexican restaurant with some delicious food. We were definitely the loudest group there! We started off by eating and then got into the gift exchanging. For the gifts we each had to bring a white elephant (gag gift), and a present for our secret sister. Our “secret sister” is a girl on the team, whose name we drew at the beginning of the season, that...

Kelsey: Charity Appearances

  • December 12, 2012

Practices and games have been so much fun! We have been learning new dances each practice and have some very fun themed dances coming up! The whole experience has been very rewarding. But, the most rewarding part of being a Jazz dancer has been the charity appearances. I have had the most amazing experiences with the charity functions I have been able to attend. The Jazz puts a huge focus on giving back and reaching out to the community. The first appearance was The Taste of Utah at The Grand America Hotel at down town Salt Lake. This charity gala was for Cystic Fibrosis, a disease that affects...
