OMAHA, Neb. – College of Saint Mary Dance Coach April Allen is excited to announce the addition of Brooke Podolak to CSM's inaugural dance team next year.
The daughter of Chad and Carmen Podolak recently signed her letter of intent to continue her education and dance career with the Flames starting in the fall.
"Brooke stood out to me because her passion for dance radiates from her while on stage," Allen said. "She clearly has a strong skill base and confidence – both of which are great qualities in a college dancer. I'm excited to help Brooke grow as an athlete and know she will be a great addition to our inaugural team."
Podolak is currently a senior at Scotus Central Catholic in Columbus, Neb. She has been a member of flag and dance team at Scotus for four years. She considers Simone Biles her favorite sports hero and she plans to study nursing at CSM.
"I love the campus and the college felt like home," Podolak said.
