Ellsie is an amazing young lady who is a huge example to her teammates of being dedicated, hard working, and positive. She is our team captain and sets the standard of excellence. She is an outstanding leader not only in the dance studio but also in the classroom. Ellsie is an extremely selfless who gives tirelessly of herself. This year when 2 of the dancers tested positive the day before a competition and needed to be removed from the routine, she spent the entire day with the two alternates helping them learn their new spots and feel confident about their ability to step in and fill the shoes of those girls who were out. She is top notch in every aspect. She had definitely made a positive impact on the Minerette program this year and has set the standard that next year’s team captains need to strive to meet.
