NEW FALL COACH

KAITLIN VERHULST

The Kolleens Dance Team would like to welcome our new

Fall Coach Kaitlin Verhulst.

Welcome Kaitlin!

 

Hello Dancers! I am so excited to come on board and join the Kolleens family as the fall performance team coach. I am a Licensed School Nurse in the district; I work at the Bloomington Transition Center and with the Early Childhood Education Programs. I graduated last May from the University of Minnesota so this is my first professional nursing job. I danced on the Woodbury Royals Dance Team for four years while in high school. I also danced at Woodbury Dance Center from age three through graduation, competing in jazz, tap, open, pom and lyrical. In my free time I enjoy reading, yoga, too much coffee and snuggling my fur baby Dunker. The thing I am most excited for this season is to get to know all of the wonderful dancers on the Kolleens fall team!
