Emily DeNet - September 2015 Judges' Choice
Emily has been dancing for 12 years. She studies at JAMM Dance Co in Rosemount, MN. She takes ballet, contemporary, jazz, lyrical, tap, hip hop, musical theatre, and pointe. Emily would like to thank Ms. Angie Olson, Miss Katelyn Rademacher, Ms. Lorelei Noire, Miss Bri Ekl, and Ms. Jessie Huebsch, who have always been an inspiring team of teachers.
"Working with Katelyn Rademacher is an amazing experience. She always pushes me beyond what I thought I was possible of achieving. She pushes the limits of creative choreography and I am lucky enough to try to dance her vision. 
To the young dancers...enjoy your time at competition, remember the experience. You may not remember what awards you win, but you will always remember how you feel performing on stage.
My team inspires me. They are some of the most amazing people I have met and push me to be my best. Not only do they help me become a better dancer, they also have helped me discover who I am and who I want to be. I am so grateful to work with such an amazing group of girls and I hope I never lose them.
When I get older, I would love to be a dance teacher and teach my students some of the life changing lessons that my teachers have taught me growing up. I would like to inspire young dancers and help them become who they want to be."

"Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."
