Trojans in motion

Posted By on Mon, Apr 20, 2009 at 4:59 PM

You perhaps recall I dipped a toe in the recent great UALR cheerleading controversy. Acrobatic cheerleaders or sexy dance squad? Pleated skirts and bobby sox or spandex? Etc.

Dancers win.

UALR has announced the hiring of the Arkansas Twisters Sirens' dance team coach to coach and choreograph a new Trojan dance team. Tryouts are set, including training for aspirants.

That's all I intend to say about the matter. I wouldn't want to be accused of trivializing this great and serious institution..


UALR Names Trojan Dance Coach, Choreographer
LITTLE ROCK, Ark.(April 20, 2009) – Sara Beth Wyatt, coach and choreographer for the Sirens, the dance team of the Arkansas Twisters, has been hired by UALR Athletics to coach and choreograph the UALR dance team.
“We are thrilled to have Sara Beth join the UALR Department of Athletics family,” said UALR Director of Athletics Chris Peterson.  “Her dance experience along with her coaching and choreographing experience should take our dance team toward the new direction we are seeking.”
The Little Rock, Ark., native has 20 years of dance training, including work with the Little Rock School of Dance, Shuffles and Ballet II, Horace Mann Middle School, Parkview Arts Magnet High School, and Marymount Manhattan.
Before her stint with the Sirens, Wyatt was the movement instructor and choreographer at the Arkansas Arts Center Children’s Theater from 2003 to 2006.  From 2006 to 2007, she was the dance teacher at DFW Artistic Experience.
Tryouts for the 2009-10 UALR dance team will be 10 a.m. Saturday, May 23, at the UALR Center for Performing Arts.  Preparatory classes for tryouts will be at 4 p.m. Tuesdays, May 5, and May 12, at 4 p.m. at the same venue.
