Emily LiebalIMG_2768

Emily started dancing with PBR at age 3, and began her competitive journey at age 9. She has competed in nearly all dance styles. Emily has won numerous awards and scholarships for her solos and her outstanding qualities in dance conventions, which has led her to dance classes from Las Vegas to New York City. At the Sheer Elite International Competition, she was given the prestigious Vickie Sheer Award for her excellence in dance, so she is currently serving as a Sheer Ambassador for the 2020 season. She was featured as Sugar Plum Fairy in this past year’s holiday show at PBR. Outside of dance, she is a cheerleader at Bishop Guilfoyle High School and part of the pre-medicine club. She plans on majoring in nursing at Saint Francis University in the fall with the goal of becoming a pediatric nurse practitioner. Congratulations Emily!

 

Sophia McMillanIMG_2773 (1)

Sophia started dancing with PBR in 2010. She plans on going to college in the future, but will take a year off to find her path and further solidify her future. In addition to dance, Sophia also has a strong passion for horses. Her family and all of us at PBR are incredibly proud of her accomplishments, as she has overcome so many challenges and obstacles with grace and poise. Along the way, she has learned how to adapt and deal with adversity. She has come such a long way and has grown in so many ways over the years. We wish her the best on her future endeavors!

 

Sidnie YoderIMG_2767

Sidnie has been dancing since the age of 3, with Miss Pauline since the age of 5, and competing for 10 seasons now. She performs and competes in all styles, and enjoys all of the new experiences and challenges that various styles and choreographers offer. Sidnie was proud to be named Captain of the AAHS Lioneers Dance Team this season, and was honored to have placed both with the group, and individually, at a national competition in March. She was honored to perform as young Clara and as Trepak in PBR’s holiday shows over the years. Most important to Sidnie are all of the incredible people she has had the opportunity to dance with, and for, over the years. One of her favorite experiences is when Miss P joins them on stage. Sidnie also loves working with young dancers, encouraging them, and helping them reach their potential. She is also active in Broadcasting and MLTV at Altoona High, and was a 4 year member of the very successful AAHS Gymnastics Team, where she specialized on floor. A lifelong Penn State fan, Sidnie is excited to be heading to University Park in the fall. Congratulations Sidnie!
