Amirah - 19 (Team Jr. Coach), I have been dancing for Coach Carmella, who also happens to be my wonderful mother, since I was 9. I have enjoyed every minute of it & have made so many friendships & experienced great team work values. It thrills me that we have the LOVE for dance in common. The memories I have tucked away are priceless! I have 2 AYC Nationals Championships in my dance career with FYM and hope to add one more in my last year this year! It will be bittersweet, but I would not trade the experience for anything in the world!
Delaney - 17 (Team Capt.), I have been dancing under the organization for 9 years. Dancing is my "escape". Without it, the single biggest piece of my of my life would be missing and I am SO thankful for Coach Carmella. Our team is family that I would do anything for and I am SO grateful for the opportunities it has given me! Nationals here we come!!!!
Jayna - 17, I LOVE TO DANCE because it's artistic. The team creates a great support system on and off the dance floor! Making it to Nationals is the best reward for all our hard work!
Emily - 16, I have been dancing for the organization since elementary school. Every year Coach "C" creates the most amazing routines that make me want to come back season after season.
