Social Media Sweetheart of the Week – Kia
April 7, 2014
Throughout the 13-14 season, the Bobcats are highlighting one Lady Cat each week as a Social Media Sweetheart. During the week, fans will get an inside look into the lives of these hard working ladies as they go about their daily lives at their offices, classrooms, Lady Cats practices, family outings and Bobcats games.
My dream job would be coaching/choreographing for a professional dance team or group.
One thing that most people would be surprised to learn about you is…
I have over 6,000(recorded) relatives on my grandfather’s side of my family. I just found out this past summer and I was pretty shocked myself!
What’s your favorite memory from being on the Lady Cats dance team?
My favorite memory would be the overseas trips to Taiwan and China I had an opportunity to go on. Not only was it a great cultural experience, but I was able to develop stronger relationships with some of my teammates.
Dream vacation destination?
Turks and Caicos
What did your first dance costume look like? How old were you?
My first dance costume was blue with gold sequences, a little fringe skirt, and a big gold hair bow. I was 3 years old when I started dancing.
Advice for someone who dreams of becoming a professional NBA dancer?
My biggest advice would be to listen and follow every bit of advice that someone with the experience gives you. Take lessons on hair/makeup if you need, take dance lessons to help improve picking up choreography and technique, and if you are shy just work on stepping outside of your comfort zone and have conversations with people you normally would not talk to. We come across all types of people from children to grandparents so you definitely have to get used to it!
How has being a Lady Cat changed you?
Being a Lady Cat has helped me become more comfortable with talking to people I don’t know.
What are some things that make you really happy?
My family, friends, dance and food make me happy.
What is your favorite form of exercise?
Favorite time of the year?
My favorite time of year is Christmas! I feel like everyone is happier around this time and all of the holiday spirit just makes me so excited. It kind of makes me miss being a kid around this time.
