Adriana Cortez (Brandeis HS, Class of 2011)
Currently I am a biology major at UTSA in my last year of college. I will be graduating Spring 2016 with a teaching certification in high school life sciences as well.
The previous 4 years I was a member of the UTSA Pom squad, my last 2 of which I was a captain. On the Pom Squad I had the privilege of cheering on my runners at home football, basketball and volleyball games. I also had to opportunity to compete at nationals in Daytona, FL as well as cheering on our Men's and Woman's basketball teams in Las Vegas during conference tournaments.
Over the summer in addition to working for MA Dance, I was a first year member of the WNBA Star Squad were we performed at all Silver Stars' home games. Currently I am still employed with Spurs Sports & Entertainment looking forward to my rookie season as a Rampage Ice Girl!
I would not be were I am today in my dance career without the love of dance I found back in high school. Dance is much more than a hobby, it is an expression of the soul.
Brianna Arrendondo (Stevens HS)
My name is Brianna Arredondo and I am currently a Silver Dancer for the San Antonio Spurs. This is my third season on the team, and I was given the opportunity this year to help lead a talented group of girls as one of the Captains. I graduated from William J. Brennan High School in 2012 where I first discovered my passion for dance. I currently attend The University of Texas at San Antonio where I am studying to get a degree in Communications with a minor in Business Administration. Before becoming a Silver Dancer, I danced for the AHL Rampage Ice Girls, WNBA Stars Star Squad, and also performed at Sea World San Antonio. Being a Spurs Silver Dancer I have gotten the chance to travel, meet and connect with all of the wonderful fans, from season ticket holders to the amazing dancers that join our Jr. Silver Dancer clinics, and of course the best part…cheering on our Spurs at every home game!
