Sheffield School of Dance

Teacher(s) Celi Shinn

Becoming the Tremaine 2008-09 Senior Female Dancer of the Year, has taught me that hard work, responsibility and dedication are the main components of reaching your goals. Being a DOTY has not only helped me grow as a dancer, but it has given me new friendships, opportunities and memories that I will never forget. Thank you to Joe Tremaine and his amazing Faculty & Staff for making my dream come true.

My name is Meg Earley and I am currently a 17 year old Senior in high school. After high school I plan to attend the University of South Alabama and eventually move to Los Angeles, CA to fulfill my lifelong dream and pursue a dance career. My love for dance began when I was just 3 years old at Sheffield School of the Dance. I started dancing competitively at the age of 7 and since have been greatly honored with awards and achievements from many prestigious dance conventions.

I would like to start by thanking Ms. Celi and Colby Shinn for the hard work and dedication put into their efforts that have allowed me to be the best dancer I can possibly be. Thank you for all of your wisdom and instruction you have blessed me with throughout my years of dance, I cannot thank you enough.

I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for the support of my family. Thank you for all the sacrifices you have made and motivational strength you have given me. You guys truly are my greatest support system.

Throughout my years of dance I have trained and taken classes from some of the most amazing choreographers across the country, from Suzi Taylor, Mark Meismer, and Mia Michaels, to Kim Wolfe, Mandy Moore and Wade Robson. Dance to me is more than just an extracurricular activity, it’s my life! I love the excitement of traveling the nation and being able to do what I love most.

Since the age of 7, I have so greatly admired and looked up to the Tremaine Faculty, Company Members, and past DOTY’s. I would like to thank Joe Tremaine and his faculty and staff for giving me the opportunity to be a role model to young dancers throughout the country and allowing me to represent Tremaine Dance Conventions. I am truly blessed and honored to be chosen as the 2008-2009 Senior Female Dancer of the Year. I look forward to a great year and growing, not only as a dancer, but a person as well.
