Tigette captain's character matches her dance skill
Meghan Brown named OSDTDA All-Region
Senior captain of the Broken Arrow High School Varsity Tigette team, Meghan Brown is involved with more organizations than just her team. She enjoys volunteering in leadership and in her community.
“I started Tigettes in the 8th grade because I love how spirited Tigettes can be and I love to dance,” Brown said.
Brown’s love for dance was recently rewarded as she was named to the Oklahoma State Dance Team Directors’ Association (OSDTDA) All-Region Dance Team. She now has the opportunity to audition for OSDTDA All-State.
The Tigettes head coach, Meag Warren, has seen growth in Brown’s character as well as her dance during her five years in the program. She has seen Brown positively affect the team as well as people in the school through her leadership capabilities.
“Meghan has affected the team as whole because she brings positivity, leadership, and spunk to the team,” Warren said.
Teammates, like co-captain Hannah Crist, have also seen the same in Brown’s character. The two have been dancing together for several years. They have been involved in each other’s lives not only through their sport but in their social lives as well.
“I personally have seen Meghan improve her dance skills and leadership skills through her dedication and passion for our school, and she shows it through her actions and how she treats people”, Crist said.
Since Brown serves as the team captain, she has to lead the team day in and day out. She enjoys expressing herself through dancing and wants to help her teammates do the same.
“Meghan positively affected the team as a whole because she has grown into an amazing leader, and she is incredibly mature and responsible for her age,” Warren said.
The Tigette team dances throughout sporting events and in competitions. For their competitions, they get to pick what genre of dance they want to perform.
“My favorite dance to perform is hip-hop because I love the fast movements and the music we get to do,” Brown said.
Brown hopes to continue her career at the University of Tulsa. She plans to double major in chemical and petroleum engineering and hopes to be on the TU pom squad.
