Let’s get to know Lizzie, a first year member of the Ladies of Ontario Fury.

My dance teacher from childhood started her professional dance career as a Laker Girl so it inspired me to keep the cheer path open as a way to pursue my dreams.

My favorite experience has been bonding with ladies and getting to know them individually. It’s really quite amazing that everyone has something unique that she brings to the team, and I believe that is what makes our team so special and great.
What is your favorite dance style?
Jazz, especially the 80’s style.😍

Give me a good pas de bourree any day! My go to dance move would have to be any type of groove, I like to feel music.
