As he leaves for his first college camp today I can't begin to explain how PROUD I am of this young man and all that he has accomplished. He may freak out when he reads this, but when he first came to tryouts he could barely do a double pirouette. My sister and I made our decision and he became an Eisenhower Dance Team member that season. He progressed like no one I had ever seen before. His passion, determination, sense of humor and personality brought a new element to Eisenhower Dance!!! We won a championship that season. The next year he improved even more and refined his skills. Last year as a senior he helped the VARSITY team at Eisenhower DOUBLE title at a National Championship at #UDANationals. He then went on to audition for a college team and he has made HISTORY as the FIRST MALE member of the University of Michigan Dance Team!!!!!!!!!!! When I heard he made it I was so excited and happy for him, and even beyond college I know he will go on to do GREAT things. Mostly though it has made me realize that it only takes ONE person to see your potential, believe in you and take a chance on you to help you achieve your goals, dreams and even change the world!!!! This kid has it people. He lights up any room he walks into, he captivates you on stage, he has amazing work ethic and he could make a mime laugh out loud. Good Luck Brendan on your first college dance team camp! You have the overwhelming love and support of all your coaches, family, friends and teammates!
