The Iowa Lakes Community College Dance Team has signed McKayla Allpress, a Marshall, Minn., native, for the 2012-13 season.
Leadership, good sportsmanship, dedication and ability qualified Allpress to be named for the 2012 State Girls’ Dance Team Tournament Class AA Jazz All-Tournament Team.
Head Coach Danie Juhl said she feels lucky to “have such an incredible dancer join the team. McKayla’s talent will help take the team to a competitive level.”
Four Estherville Lincoln Central high school seniors have also indicated they plan to attend Iowa Lakes and be a part of the competitive dance team. Madisen Zeigler, Taylor Heinrichs, Aryn Ward, and Jessica Phillips were all members of the award-winning ELC team in high school.
Juhl says she looks forward to the first year of competitive dance at Iowa Lakes.
“Each of these women are very talented and will bring something special to the team,” she commented. “I look forward to coaching them.”
