Fifth-year Arts Education student, Megan Pearce was honoured by her dance team with the 2016 Dedication Award. The Dedication Award is awarded to someone who has contributed their time and efforts as a committed team player and goes above and beyond what is expected of them.
Quote from the Award Banquet: “The Dedication Award is awarded to a dancer who has contributed their time and effort to the team and goes above and beyond her duties. This year our team … had coach athletes. Our coaches dedicated a lot of their time to make sure this team had a successful year! One of our coach athletes has been dedicated to the team for 4 years now. We love having her as a coach and an athlete and wanted to recognize her for all she has done for the team. The Dedication Award this year goes to Megan Pearce!”
Megan majors in Dance and minors in Elementary Literature. She is also working towards a Bachelor of Dance degree. This is Megan’s fourth year on the University of Regina Dance Team.
The U of R Dance team is distinct from the U of R Cheer team, though they both cheer and perform at the Ram’s and Cougar’s games. The Dance Team focuses on contemporary and jazz routines, and performs at sporting events and varsity dance competitions across Canada.
Megan says, “This year, we traveled to Toronto to compete at Strive Dance Challenge where our contemporary and jazz routines placed fourth.” The team also performed at local cheer and dance competitions, such as the Ice Breaker Cheer and Dance Championships and the University of Regina Cheerleading Championships.
“I have enjoyed each season with the U of R Dance Team as I am able to continue and share my passion of dance while attending University. The Dance Team has also provided me with many opportunities to travel, compete, and improve my dancing individually and as part of a group. I have made lifelong friendships and enjoy being a part of a supportive team,” says Megan.
