About Motions Dance and Twirl Academy
Motions Dance and Twirl Academy opened for business March, 2013 in my living room. The owner, Bethany Thomas, has been teaching elementary school girls to dance and twirl for five years. All of her students are 98% low income. Bethany has donated over 2400 hours (just in 2011-2012 school years) to bringing the art of dance to the students for free. Bethany has been dancing for 16 years and twirling for 6 years. Under the guidance and instructions of Bethany, the girls she trained went to several competitions where they won 1st through 3rd place. A portion of her team traveled to Twirl Mania International Twirling Competition in Florida where they won 3rd place internationally in 2012. Last year we competed in Twirl Mania International Competition 2013 where we won 2nd place in dance, 3rd place in pompom and 6th place twirling. We also traveled to Westlake, Louisiana where we competed and won 2, 1st places, 1 sweepstake, and numerous 1+ ratings in all areas. Last year we competed in Nederland, Texas and won 1st place in dance, pompom, twirling, solos, and duet. This year we traveled back to Twirl Mania 2014 International Competition where the girls won 1st place in PomPon, 2nd and 2 groups that won 3rd place in their levels of dance. The girls work really hard and enjoy the sport.
