Madeline Gonzalez - Head Coach
I'm so excited to be coaching the Palmer Ridge Dance Team for another year!
I was the assistant coach for the team last year and am now taking over as head coach. I have 15 years of formal dance training, including ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, and poms. I was also captain of the Lewis-Palmer Poms Team for the 2011-2012 school year, so I'm a traitor- oh no! When I'm not coaching, I also teach Special Education at Palmer Ridge High School.
I believe in supporting responsible, well-rounded athletes, who exhibit excellence in not only athletics but also academics, community involvement, other arts and music, clubs, student government, etc. Our dancers are expected to be a good representation of the Dance Team, meaning they are always speaking and behaving appropriately, and are, above all, kind to others.
