The Viewfinder: Cathedral senior learns to be leader on dance team

NATCHEZ — A Natchez teenager said dance has helped her soar to new heights.

Trinity Miller, 17, said being on the dance team at Cathedral High School has helped her break out of her shell and become a leader.

“At first, my freshman year I wasn’t exactly in the school spirit,” Miller said. “I was always nervous to try new stuff so I didn’t know what I could do.”

Miller said she tried out on a whim her junior year and that she wasn’t expecting to even make the team.

“I’m not good at sports,” Miller said, “This is it.”

Now, Miller is the only senior on the team and in that role, she said she tries to help the younger dancers out as much as possible.

“It has definitely taught me how to be a leader, and how to take the lead if someone, like our captain, isn’t here,” Miller said. “Just give them (younger dancers) some motivational tips, how to do this or that, and just kind of guide them through and help them out as much as I can.”

Along with being a leader, Miller said being on the dance team has also taught her how to follow.

“I’ve learned a couple of life skills, like how to take constructive criticism and how to handle different things,” Miller said. “Now I just take it as a positive experience and learn from it.”

This year Miller said she is excited about the new routines and having everyone see what the team has been working on. She said for anyone else considering trying out for the dance team or something new, to just go for it.

“Don’t limit yourself to the things you think you can’t do, just go for it, and you might surprise yourself,” Miller said.
