Natalie, who has years of professional dance & entertainment experience, also oversees the Rockets Launch Crew, Little Dippers, Space City Seniors, the Rockets dunk team Anti-Gravity, the Rockets drumline Sonic Boom, Clutch the Bear & the Rockets in-arena host. In addition to the entertainment, on game nights she acts as stage director and manages Red Ops, the Rockets game night staff. As the Entertainment Director, Natalie books a few of the unique halftime and national anthem acts you see performing in the Toyota Center. A Houston native, she leads a team that she was once a member of for seven seasons. During her time as a dancer with RPD, Natalie served as a captain and choreographer, while splitting time as a professional back-up dancer and choreographer for touring national recording artists. Additionally, Natalie toured the nation herself as a singer/songwriter with Universal Records. Her self-titled debut album "Natalie" premiered at No. 16 on the Billboard Top-200 Charts, and her lead single "Goin' Crazy" was a gold selling #1 hit. These experiences have given Natalie a vast knowledge of the entertainment industry, which she uses in taking RPD & the Rockets entertainers to the next level with show-stopping performances and hard-hitting choreography. Natalie was chosen by the NBA during the 15-16 season to manage & choreograph the 2016 NBA All-Star Dance Team in Toronto.
