Year: Freshman

Hometown: Brownsville, TX
Member Since: Fall '09

Aaron is a proud first year member of the UT Dance Team and is full of energy to work hard in order to comply with the expectations of his astounding high school director, Mrs. Sandy Zuchora, his mom, his new dance buddies, his picky dance friends, and the expectations he has for himself. All the way from Brownsville, Texas, this is will be Aaronís first year as a Longhorn and his fourth year dancing after he accidentally got hyper and decided that dance was something heíd like to try because his lovely cousins were doing it too. The heavens were on Aaronís side when it turned out that the dance organization of his high school is a highly respected dance team. The Fine Arts Academy at Lopez High School Dance Company and Golden Stars Dance Team has received many prestigious awards which include the Best of the Best Team Award, the Line of Champions Team/Officer award and the Best In Class Officer State Championship Award for three years in a row out of which Aaron was a part of his senior year. Aaron was also the High School Solo Champion for the American Dance/Drill Team competition, as well as the High School Solo Champion for the Showtime International competition and recipient of a dance scholarship. Aaron plans to major in dance and become an instructor in order to share his knowledge with others and change studentís lives just how his director Mrs. Sandy Zuchora changed his. He would also love to write books for children and show them how to read. His reward would be seeing the smiles on little kidís faces after they comprehend whatís happening in the story so they can learn to love reading and not grow up to be somebody who hates it. Aaron is most excited to see the world through a dancerís eyes and learn from every performance, every practice and not only grow as a dancer, but as a person as well.
