Colorado State alum is a first-year member of the Wild Bunch

Heidi, a first-year dancer with Colorado's Wild Bunch, graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations. She also practiced her dancing skills during her time on campus in Fort Collins, CO, making her decision to audition for the Wild Bunch a no-brainer.

"This is an amazing organization and group of women," said Heidi. "I love dancing and the energy and loyalty of the fans, and I wanted to be part of this unique opportunity to be a role model in the community. Plus, who wouldn't want to dance for the Mammoth?"

Heidi, a performing arts marketing and promotions professional, claims that her favorite things to do in Colorado (besides dancing at Mammoth games, of course) include taking in shows at the Denver Performing Arts Complex and trying new restaurants. She currently resides in Aurora, CO.

Heidi says that she values her family, education and friends most in life and "would not be where I am today" without them. Her favorite movies of all-time are Breakfast at Tiffany's and The Godfather, and her dream-car is also straight out of Hollywood: the Batmobile. As for her athletic career, she says that dancing is where it starts and ends.

"I love being active. However, at an early age I learned I should stick to dancing. I run and throw like a girl; it's actually pretty embarrassing."
