Every girl who has ever put on a pair of ballet flats dreams of making it big and dancing along side a pop star, but only a lucky few actually make their dreams come true. Well, UD Communication Alumna Pam Leary’10 has a shot at being one of the lucky few.
Leary, a former captain and co-choreographer of the University of Delaware Dance Team, competed in a promotional dance competition at the Manhattan Mall in New York City for the movie Burlesque, staring Christina Aguilera and Cher. She won the New York Competition and is now competing with 19 other regional city winners for the chance to have her dance video aired on MTV.
Originally from Newtown, PA, Leary started dancing at an early age. Early on in her life, Leary competed at competition and conventions. She earned many top awards and titles at regional and national competitions. At 15, Leary performed as Ernie at Sesame Place Theme Park in Langhorne, PA where she danced in shows and parades, both in costume and out, for three years. As captain of the Dance team at UD, Leary lead the team to two consecutive national collegiate championships in hip hop. Currently, Leary is training and performing with BEings Dance Company and living in New York City.
