The ultimate passion for the art of dance and for teaching has always brought Vandy back to the dance world. She began her career at age three at her mother’s dance studio, Candy Crocker School of Dance, where she trained in tap, jazz, ballet, lyrical, hip-hop, drill team and musical theatre. Vandy attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX and was a member of the Texas Tech Pom Squad. During her college career, she was awarded a summer internship at the prestigious Broadway Dance Center in New York City, NY where she assisted with “The Rockette Experience” and trained with tap icons Savion Glover and Mike Minery. After receiving a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing, she relocated to Dallas where she was a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader from 2002-2005. Her performance credits include two Christmas Tours with the United Service Organizations (USO) in South Korea, Alan Jackson’s “Live at Texas Stadium Tour”, “Fox and Friends” NYC, “The Tonight Show” with David Letterman, Fort Hood’s “Welcome Home Troops” with Jessica Simpson, and “Larry King Live”. Vandy has instructed and choreographed for the past 20 years for youth dance groups and cheerleading teams. Her enthusiastic and constructive teaching style stems from her love of dance and her desire to pass it on to the dancers of tomorrow.
