Favorite Player and Why: My favorite player is #5 Mitchell. She shows lots of moxie!

Best Dance Move: Best dance move is "dip baby dip"

Favorite Routine: Favorite routine this year is "Pretty Woman" ...prior years Beyonce's "Put a Ring on It"

Most Memorable Moment with the Team:
The memorable moments are each year's opening games. I love the way all 3 dance teams coordinate to produce a spectacular half time show!

Fame or Footloose? Fame with Footloose as a close second. I'm looking forward to seeing the remake of Footloose with Julianne Hough.

So You Think You Can Dance or Dancing with the Stars? I absolutely love So you Think You Can Dance. The choreography is so creative and innovative! Dancing with the Stars is a close second.

Advice for Aspiring Timeless Torches: It's more than doing some "moves" Put your personality and energy out there! Being a team player is so important. We all work together to attain the "greater good"
