Susie competed with two different high school dance line teams, the Brunettes of Lincoln High School and the Parkettes of St. Louis Park High School. Dance line practiced three days a week after school. Once, they traveled to perform for a Minnesota Vikings football game!
Susie was happy to be a part of a team, from performing to drinking chocolate malts together. Dance line taught her the value of being a true team player.
Perhaps dance team also led to another favorite memory—being crowned one of two Homecoming Queens at Lincoln High School with her best friend, Jill!
