jm dance pre 11-26


Head coach: Bethany Morrisey, fifth year.

JV head coach: Lisa Miller, second year.

Assistant coaches: Angie Radosevich, first year. Tara Keith, first year.

Season outlook: Last season the Rockettes placed in the top half of their section in both high kick and jazz and fifth overall in the Big 9 conference. This season, they are hoping to improve on their scores one competition at a time to earn a trip to the State tournament. This is the hardest working team I have coached and I look forward to each competition being a challenge and hopefully a team success.


History: The Rockettes have been an MSHSL competition team for six years. The Rockettes started with an 18 member squad and now have 40 members. It has also expanded to include a competitive JV program.

Coach Morrisey: "To coach these athletes is an honor and a privilege. Every season brings its challenges and each year the team raises the bar by setting high expectations for themselves, the team, and the coaches. This season are squad is young and relatively new. However, this has encouraged them to learn from and rely on one another to exceed all expectations.

"I am anxious to see what the future holds for these athletes as they have developed into a strong group mentally and physically. I thank God everyday for blessing me with the ability to teach and learn from these athletes while receiving the support and encouragement from fellow coaches and Rockette parents."
