Fremont, Neb. – The Midland University dance team has announced the signing of Julianne Lewis to its 2017 recruiting class. The Adrian, Michigan native will attend Midland University in the fall.
"Julianne is a wonderful addition to our program," said head coach Trish Ryan. "She not only possesses strong talent in her jazz and technical abilities, but also brings such an energetic and genuine personality to our team."
Julianne, who is currently dancing with the Company C Dance Club, has a long list of honors to her name. Julianne has earned the title of a Platinum Solo Winner at dance studio competitions and has also been a four-time National Qualifier for Tremaine Dance. Julianne comes with an extensive dance background with training in ballet, jazz, lyrical and acrobatics.
Julianne was joined by her mother and step father, Angie and Larry Heath, at the signing. Angie Heath is currently the Head Cheer and Dance Coach at Siena Heights University in Adrian, Michigan.
"We are so excited and honored to see Julianne dancing for one of the best dance teams in the country" said Julianne's mother and fellow NAIA coach, Angie Heath. "She is beyond excited to begin her journey at Midland."
Midland's competitive dance team, the Warrior Wildfire, is fresh off capturing its third GPAC conference title as well as their second NAIA National Invitational Runner-up finish. The Warrior Wildfire dancers have won a total of three national titles over the last four years.
