Fremont, Neb. – The Midland University dance team has announced the signing of Sade' Arrington to its 2017 recruiting class. Sade' comes to Midland University from Altus, Oklahoma.
"Sade' had sent in such a well-rounded audition film, I knew she would be a great addition to our program,” said Director of Dance, Trish Ryan. “She will definitely bring a lot of personality and showmanship to our game day performances!”
Sade' was a four-year member on Altus High School Bulldogs dance team, underneath the leadership of coach Lori Pierce Gambill. Sade' also has experience in many styles of dance, including hip-hop and jazz while dancing at Studio One with teachers Gabrielle Rustmann-Barnett, Kaylie Peterson, and Lexi Smalts.
Sade' was joined by her father and mother, Solomon and Teresa Arrington, at her signing.
"I chose Midland because I wanted to continue dancing as my motivation in furthering my education for a future career," Sade' said. "When I visited Midland, the vibe here was like no other place. I felt comfortable, and I knew this is where I could be my best!”
Midland's competitive dance team, Warrior Wildfire, is fresh off capturing a fourt GPAC Conference Tournament title as well as the inaugural NAIA Competitive Dance National Championship Title in 2017.
