LARAMIE, Wyo. -
Senior Wildfire dance captain Dena Heilbrun was selected as an All-American at the Las Vegas Cheer and Dance Camp on August 3.
Heilbrun, who has been a member of Wildfire for the past five years, was one of 10 All-Americans selected from the many colleges and universities that attended the camp which ran from July 30 through August 3.
She was selected out of 30 finalists after completing a dance performance in which the finalists had 15 minutes to learn the routine in addition to the regular camp routines and activities.
"I can't imagine my life without dancing. It is one of my passions in life," she said.
Heilbrun has been dancing since she was seven years old and is from Torrington, Wyo. She is majoring in Business Marketing with aspirations of dancing professionally.
Wyoming was the only school from the Mountain West Conference to attend the camp.
