Sheffield School of Dance

Teacher(s) Celi Shinn

My experience as the 2007-08 Senior Male DOTY has been unexplainable. I realize that it takes more than just talent to be successful at something I enjoy. Tremaine taught me that respect, hard work, and commitment will take you very far in life. The Tremaine faculty helped me grow as a person and the opportunities offered, have been priceless. Thanks Joe and faculty for allowing me to be part of this wonderful family.

My name is Kendall Brinkman and I am a senior in high school. I am in the honors program and scholastically I rank in the top 5 percent of my class. I am also a member of the National Honor Society and plan on attending the University of Alabama at Birmingham to join the med-school program. When I’m not dancing, I enjoy hunting, fishing, and playing soccer. I also like to spend time with my friends.

I began dance training at the age of seven. I was always flipping around the house, so my mom enrolled me into acrobatics class. Before long I started taking all the classes that were offered and have now been dancing for eleven years. I would like to give thanks to Mrs. Celi and Mrs. Kelly for being great dance teachers who inspired me to do what I love best. I would also like to thank Colby for being a good role model. Being DOTY will be a wonderful experience that I will never forget. Thanks Joe Tremaine and faculty for giving me the opportunity to become a part of the Tremaine family.
