Number of Season:
Get to Know Amber:
This is my first season with the Cubs dance team. I am in the first year of my Nursing degree, and I volunteer at the South Health Campus hospital in the geriatric wards once a week. In three words, I would describe myself as dedicated, compassionate, and imaginative.
I have been dancing for as long as I have been able to walk; it has always been a part of my life, I cannot imagine not dancing. I am so happy to dance with the MRU Cubs because of their school spirit events and their amazing role in the community! My favourite part so far has been learning all of our routines, because I enjoy dancing with the other Cubs so much, and nothing can beat the feeling when we all dance together.
I have been dancing for 15 years with dance studios, and have tried almost every dance style you could think of, from tap, to ballroom, to modern. My favourite styles are definitely contemporary, jazz, and ballet. If I had to pick only one, though, I’d have to choose contemporary! I’ve competed all over North America, but my favourite performances were at Westjet’s corporate Christmas parties in Calgary and Vancouver. My entire studio flew to Vancouver and performed a large group dance; it was definitely an experience I’ll never forget.
I can’t wait to perform as a team on game day and at Cowboys. Like I said, nothing beats the feeling of when you are dancing with a group of people and you all come together as a team!
My favourite quote is a little corny, but I love the song I Lived by OneRepublic because it inspires me to try as much as possible, so my chosen quote is:
"I swear I lived”.
