Coaches

Meet the Dazzler Dance Team coaches!

 

mcb Head Coach: Bridget McBratney

Full time job: General Manager at Arista Hair Solutions

Years with the Dazzlers: I am in my 5th season coaching the Dazzlers!

Years dancing: I danced for 12 years at Liz Kelley Dance Studio 1 and for 3 years on the varsity dance team at Blue Valley North High School.

Favorite style of dance: My favorite style of dance is probably jazz! Hip hop is a VERY close second!

Favorite Dazzler event of the year: I really love football games! We get to watch the girls dance and do what they love during the pre-game show, on the sidelines, and during halftime. There is also an amazing amount of school spirit at football games you can't help but have fun!

Looking forward to in 21/22: I am looking forward to the opportunity to attend ADTS Nationals for the first time with the team! After originally planning on going in March of 2020, I am so excited to finally see this dream happen. Going to Nationals is going to be a fun bonding experience while challenging our dancers to reach the next level in their skill!

Fun Fact: I have 3 tattoos! One of my dog's pawprint, a dancer silhouette, and a Mickey Mouse.

Full time job: Spanish teacher at Spring Hill High School

Years with the Dazzlers: This is my first season with the Dazzlers!

Years dancing: I started dancing at age 3. I went to Ms. Heather's School of Dance, Main Street Dance, and then Blair's Dance Studio. I also danced on my high school dance team for 4 years and continued to dance in college as well!

Favorite style of dance: My favorite styles are pom and kick.

Favorite Dazzler event of the year: My favorite Dazzler event this year was probably the calendar photoshoot so far. I love taking pictures and watching the girls get all dressed up was so fun.

Looking forward to in 21/22: Also, I am hoping we will get to go to Nationals because I think taking a trip like that with the girls will be amazing and help us all grow closer together and have a lot of bonding time too!

Fun fact: I was homecoming queen my senior year of high school.
