My name is Allie and this is my rookie season as a Timberwolves Dancer.

My favorite food is anything homemade. My mom is an amazing cook and I think my favorite thing that she makes is her white bean chili soup...it's good.
What's your favorite movie?
My favorite movie - I love The Great Debaters with Denzel Washington. I think it's a really inspirational movie.
What do you do in your free time?
I love reading books and I love doing anything outside.
Who is your favorite athlete?
I am from the Ames area and Wes Johnson used to play for Iowa State, so I've got to go with the hometown hero.

I go to Bethel University and I'm majoring in International Business and Political Science.
What's your favorite part of being a dancer?
I love game days - they're my favorite, just to be able to be with the 14 other women that we dance with and our pregame rituals and being able to see all the fans and greet them. It's just really fun - the whole experience goes by so fast.
What are the goals of the team?
As a team I think our common goal is just to motivate the fans and constantly be an inspiration to everyone out there, so I hope that we're able to channel our energies on to one another and on to the Timberwolves and just make this a great rest of the year.
