Emily Charneski (2014)
Since graduating De Pere High School and All that Dance in 2014 I have been very busy! I started attending college at the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire studying Spanish and Human Resources. Because of my majors I have been able to accomplish quite a bit. First, I studied aboard in Spain for 5 months, it was amazing! Second, I completed two HR internships, one of them being with Amazon. Third, last September Amazon offered me a full-time job with them because of my internship. Lastly, I will be graduating in May after five years of schooling with two degrees and two certificates. Throughout this time away from ATD I was fortunate enough to continue dancing with a student led dance company on campus who brought be me many wonderful friends, an outlet for creativity, and renewal of my passion.

I became a Manufacturing Engineer at a medical device company shortly after.

I enjoy training for triathlons, movies, the beach, and being a tourist in my own city. I miss ATD and dancing, but ATD will always have a piece of my heart!
Kennedy Koenig (2013)
After high school I then went on to go to college at AMDA. One year in New York and one year in Los Angeles. After moving to Los Angeles, I auditioned for Tokyo Disney and booked King Triton’s concert at Tokyo Disney Sea. After working and living in Japan for 14 months I moved back home and kept auditioning. I auditioned for Monster Jam and got a call back. From that call back, the casting director thought I’d be better suited for Disney Live, Mickey and Minnie’s Doorway to Magic, a U.S tour. I booked that and began traveling across the United States portraying the role of Snow White. That tour decided to go to Egypt! I spent a month in Egypt performing for the Disney Live show with Feld Entertainment. Unfortunately the tour was canceled and I was back auditioning again! Somehow I ended up in Florida where I now work at SeaWorld Orlando. I was fortunate enough to become Dance Captain and had the amazing opportunity of opening Sesame Street. I was involved in casting and helping build the Sesame Street Parade! I also am an actress for a show at SeaWorld called, Story time with BIG BIRD, where I am the “storyteller of Sesame Street”!--

Upon graduation from HS in 2013, I attended the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee, where I studied Human Resource Management and Psychology. I graduated in 2017 with a Bachelors in Business Administration and moved back home for a year to work for my mom at MimiWorks. Although I loved going to work with my mom everyday, I missed Milwaukee, the place that I now call home, and accepted a position at Robert W. Baird as a HR Associate. The biggest and most exciting thing that has happened, though, is that I adopted a beautiful kitty named Olive ️ #ATD4Life

Rachel Rudd (2013)
Halee Stewart (2013)
Since graduating high school, I’m extremely grateful for all of the ways my life has changed. I began college at the UW-Stevens Point, where I was apart of their dance team for four years. I absolutely loved that I was able to continue dancing but my favorite part of being on a team was all of the amazing people I’d met. I became great friends with a lot of dancers who I’d competed against during my time on high school dance team; we all joke about how many times we’ve probably stood right next to each other at regional competitions or state and never even realized. I became co-captain of the team my fourth year, which was a greatly enriching experience. After my fourth year of college, I ended up taking part in the Disney College Program. While there I experienced my first hurricane, learned a ton about Disney, and met some of the kindest people. I actually came home from my program with a significantly clearer idea of how I wanted to spend my life and am currently enrolled at UWGB studying English education. I have always loved reading and writing so pursuing this major is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. This summer I’ll actually be traveling to Oxford, England as part of my studies. I love how much I’ve changed from all of my past experiences and am excited to see what comes from the next few years.

Since HS and ATD I went to school and graduated from SNC. After graduation I moved Milwaukee with my boyfriend and got a job working for a large healthcare company as a project manager.

Chelsea Wendt (2007)
Upon graduating from De Pere High School in 2007, I attended the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee where I obtained a Bachelors of Science in Health Care Administration and a Minor in Business Administration. After graduation I came home to De Pere and worked at Bellin for over a year. I soon realized this job career was not what I wanted for the rest of my life, so I packed up and moved back to the Milwaukee area. I went back to school at MATC where I completed my Associate Degree in Technology and Applied Sciences for Interior Design. After 2 years in Milwaukee, I once again moved back to De Pere to start a position with a local furniture company, KI. I have been with KI for 4 years now as a CAD specialist, space planning and rendering commercial furniture. This past June (2018) my husband Jon and I finally got married after 8 1/2 years of dating. We bought our house 3 years ago in East De Pere where we currently live with our 7 year old pup, Coop!

Savanah Makowski (2019)
After graduating from De Pere High school and ATD, I have been studying Biology at the University of Milwaukee. I hope to become a dermatologist and move somewhere closer to the equator in the future. I still haven’t found an opportunity around Milwaukee that can help me continue with dancing; however, I hope I will find one soon. I have so many wonderful memories at ATD and nothing will ever beat the friendships and family I made there.--
