Sheridan McDowell

Sheridan is originally from Austin, Texas and has relocated to Dallas bringing her enthusiasm and passion for dance. As a young girl, Sheridan originally trained as a gymnast and was a member of the National Elite Gymnastics Team in Austin. She was fortunate to work with world-renowned Olympic coaches Martha and Bela Karolyi at their training site for the USA National Gymnastics Team. During those years Sheridan realized her strength was in the more fluid movements of the sport and quickly transitioned to dance where she immediately found her lifelong passion and purpose. Her commitment to training served her well as she studied ballet, jazz, tap, hip-hop, lyrical, contemporary and drill. She was a member of Austin’s Dance Elite, served as second lieutenant of the award-winning Westlake Hyline Dance Team and was a member of their Jazz Company. She was a Kilgore College Rangerette and Swingster, and a member of the TCU Showgirls. Sheridan was a Dean’s Scholarship Recipient, member of Phi Upsilon Omicron national honor society, and holds a B.S. in Fashion Merchandising with a minor in Psychology from Texas Christian University.

Sheridan has performed on national television in several NFL games as well as Cotton Bowls, the Peach Bowl, and numerous other college football and basketball games. Sheridan danced in Washington, D.C. at the 2013 Black Tie & Boots Presidential Inaugural Ball and on the USS Missouri during the 70th Remembrance of Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, as well as in countless parades, shows, and competitions. She has worked with nationally recognized instructors, choreographers, and production teams during her years of dance and performance. Sheridan has taught and choreographed for several camps, studios, competition teams and high schools. Her love of dance is contagious, and it is this love she shares with others in hopes of inspiring them to be moved by the movement of dance.
