Get to know Caitie:

What does being a DBC mean to you? Being a DBC means being a good role model. So many young children look up to us, so it is important to set a good example to live by!

Who is your hero? My parents are my heroes. They have always been so supportive in everything I have accomplished in life — whether it was supporting me through school, allowing me to dance way more than any child should, or spending a summer in South Africa. They were always on my side, pushing me to be a better version of myself. I hope I can be exactly like my parents when I have children of my own.

What is your dream vacation destination? I would love to spend some time in New Zealand!

When did you first start dancing/cheerleading? I have been dancing since I was 2 years old and also received a degree in dance. Cheer, on the other hand, I picked up while dancing for the MLL champion Denver Outlaws last year! I am definitely still learning the ins and outs of the cheer world, but I am excited to gain more knowledge and grow as a dancer.

In 10 years I see myself… In 10 years I hope to run my own performing arts center. It is in the works, but I would love to earn my Masters in nutrition first.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I have always wanted to be a professional dancer! I was lucky enough to receive my first contract at 19 years old, and to this day I cannot believe how far I have come.

What advice would you give your younger self? To be patient. I think I still tell myself that every day. I am the type of person who wants to do everything as soon as possible. The best things are worth the wait!

What is it about the Broncos that made you want to tryout for this team? Being on the Denver Outlaws last year I was able to get to know the girls on DBC a little bit. One of the things that drew to the Broncos was how humble all the girls are. Everyone was so kind and always pushing each other to be the best version of themselves, I knew this was a team I wanted to be part of. I wanted that sisterhood.

What was the audition process like? I started training for auditions back in November. I was hitting the gym hard and getting into every and any dance class I could! From preliminaries to finals was the longest week of my entire life. It was stressful but exhilarating. Auditions are really about being confident in yourself and just showing the judges what you have to offer the team!

What did it feel like when you found out you made the team? I think I am still in shock! Every time I get an email or someone will mention something about being a Broncos cheerleader, I have to take a second to remember I made the team! During auditions, it felt like this was a dream that I would need to work years for. I am beyond blessed to be a part of the 25th DBC Team!

What has been your favorite part of being a DBC so far? So far, my favorite part has been meeting everyone on the team. All 26 of us are in different parts of our lives but we all share this one common factor that has now become one of the biggest parts of our lives. We have girls from all over the U.S. on our team! I am excited to learn from everyone and to grow as a team, a sisterhood.

What do you do outside of being a DBC? Outside of DBC and my full-time job, I love being outside. On the weekends, I am normally exporting everything Colorado has to offer.

Did you play any sports (other than dance) growing up? I was on the varsity swim team in high school! Other than that, you could also find me in baseball and gymnastics growing up. Neither lasted very long though.

What's something that people don't know about you? I have been to 16 countries, and 48 of the 50 U.S. states!
