Sydney Gwerder began dancing in her hometown of Chadron, Nebraska when she was just two years old. She grew up dancing in a local studio and was a member of her high school Spirit Squad, which allowed her to continue dancing while also introducing her to cheerleading. After graduating from High School, Sydney moved to Cheyenne, Wyoming, where she began teaching at Act Two Studios. In addition to this, Sydney also coached high school dance and cheer. She holds certifications and memberships through the Acro Dance Teachers Associations (ADT) and the American Association of Cheerleading Coaches and Administrators (AACCA). Sydney has just recently relocated to Rapid City and is excited to join the Barefoot Team!
