ABOUT HEAD COACH SUSIE MAXEY

Coach Susie begin dancing when she was 14 years old when a friend told her to try out for the dance team. Though she had never danced a day in her life, she wanted to be more involved in school, so she gave it a try. Low and behold, she made the team. She was on the Kollettes, Kolleens JV team, for two years and was a Kolleen for two years. While on the Kolleens, she was a two time conference champion, as well as a two time High Kick State Champion. She also finish 2nd in Jazz at State both years she was on Kolleens and was part of the only class that went undefeated in the kick category in the history of the Kolleens.

 

After high school, she attended Minnesota State University at Mankato where she was a member of the Dance Team. She place 9th and 2nd at Nationals her first two years. During her last year on the team, she was named captain and won the first National Championships for Dance Team in the school's history. After college, she was a member of the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders and was thrilled to be able to dance on the field and cheer on those( or should it be the) Vikings.

 

 

Now, you can see Coach Susie either teaching English at Kennedy High School, coaching the Dance Team during the winter season or teaching yoga. When she is not busy with her career or part times jobs, she is spending time with her family. She has three beautiful children; a stepson Miles, son Mateo and daughter Mila. She loves being with them as much as she can.
