Liesel Holcomb


Here is Liesel's story in her own words:I started falling in love with dance shortly after I met my dancing husband, Lucas. What started as casual and unorganized goofy dancing turned into a desire to become a better dancer through structured lessons and training. My very first dance “performance” was actually for our wedding! We danced Rhumba combined with theatrical lifts to Ed Sheeran’s, “Photograph.” I remember how nervous and excited we were to take months of hard work and focus and be able to show it off to our friends and family at our wedding. With lots of “oo’s” and “ahhs,” clapping and cheering, we finished our song relieved yet exhilarated. I love dancing with my husband and I’m so blessed to be living his passion for dance with him. I graduated from Central Michigan University where I played Division I soccer and obtained a degree in Health Fitness and Rehabilitation. Having a background in playing and coaching soccer, my love of helping individuals develop, learn, and grow is something I am so excited to be able to continue doing with dance! I want everyone to have the opportunity to feel the way we did after our wedding dance.
