Natalie is an aspiring makeup artist from Indianapolis, IN. She is wrapping up her first season with the Colts cheerleaders. Dancing since the age of four, she participated in various talent shows and competitions. Two years ago, her skills took her to a national competition in Los Angeles. "Being a part of many teams and groups has allowed me to learn how to be a team player and a leader… I think that's something that everyone needs for life." Now she teaches at The Dance Refinery.
Aside from dancing, Natalie enjoys shopping, hanging out with friends, and spending time with her family. She also has a love for places that are warm and tropical. When she was younger, she played with her cousins in their pretend club house they called "Florida." She says would jump at the chance to visit any island where she could earn how to surf.
Trying out to be a Colts cheerleader was a way for Natalie to continue dancing and represent her favorite team at the same time. This season taught her a lot about herself and how to be a true "Sweetheart behind the Horseshoe." "It doesn't matter whether you're a rookie or vet, tall or short, blonde or brunette; we are all a team and equally have to work together."
Perhaps the best part of her rookie season was getting to see the fans in a new way. "I love when everyone is so excited about the players and cheerleaders! It really inspires you to do the best you can." Natalie cannot wait to see what the future brings her way!
