Pepper's dance experience began at the age of 4 performing in local shows in tap, ballet and jazz.
Her interests shifted to figure and dance roller skating competitions where she won several awards and
completed judges training. Surviving a bad car accident, her therapist encouraged her to find a hobby
using her hands so she studied sleight of hand and soon became a magician's assistant in a popular local act.
Years later traveling frequently for her full time electronics engineering job, she rediscovered her love of country music in Atlanta while
watching a dance team perform to Dan Seal's song The Bop. From that moment on she was hooked. She went on
to join and perform with the Hicks & Co Dance Team and then eventually go solo to compete in
line dance showcase and become a traveling dance instructor. Her goal is to encourage,
motivate and teach as many people as she can to love dancing as much as she does.
