Sweat, tears and a lot of hard work goes into the four day POM clinic to tryout for the new Pom Squad. Junior Katy Zimmerman recently had the experience of her fourth and final time to tryout for POM.

 

Katy tried out for POM her eighth grade year with very little dance experience. After not making it, she decided to try harder and try again the next year with the help of her dance teacher, Teresa Byrd.

She missed the cut her freshman year by only one point.  But fortunately for Katy, the POM sponsor decided it would be a good idea for an alternate that year.  This set a precedent for LISD.

 

“I was so happy to be able to get the opportunity to do what I love and I knew that I would need to work even harder to be able to show them my determination to make POM,” Zimmerman said.  “When I was the alternate I had to work even harder to learn each position of the dance, not just one.”

Katy says she was privileged to work with the Cassidy McCabe, the owner of Dance Warehouse Studios and the POM choreographer.  She believes this pushed her to be the dancer she is today.

Her sophomore year try out she was still very nervous, but all her hard work and never-ending private lessons had finally paid off. She was thrilled to be part of the POM Squad. This year she made the team once again and is still so excited.

“Now the girls on POM are my family and I am so excited to be a senior this year and to encourage the girls on POM to keep working hard and have more great years to come,” Katy said.

Katy’s experience of trying out and performing for POM has made her the dancer she is today and is an example to everyone to never give up on your dreams.
