Pom, Cheer and Drill: "Good alignment is the positioning of various parts of the body in relation to a central axis, each part of the movement will then work efficiently and the whole structure will function in harmony." ? Susan Angell, Director of the Southwest Texas Strutters and Owner of Show Makers of America

Acting for Theater: "Let?s face it, to be in the spotlight is something that is wanted in this business. If someone can dance as well as act, then that?s double spotlight time, and all the better." ? Craig Lowry, professional dancer for cruise ships, industrials, commercials, and theater

Music: "Think of your performance as a film. Music is used to enhance the moment. Watch a scary movie with the sound off and there's no reason to cover your eyes. A romantic moment has no appeal to the heart. Music allows you to become involved emotionally within a piece." --Cass Moore, Musician for Granbury Live and Owner of Cass Music Productions
