"I never dreamed that I would be on Broadway," said Courtney Corbeille, 24, from Fort Worth, TX. "As a child, I loved musical theatre and sang along in the car by myself, but I anticipated I would go into journalism or cheer in the NFL. Broadway was not in the cards until I read about the audition for Bring It On in The New York Times."

Ensemble member Corbeille, who cheered for the University of Oklahoma, the University of Miami and the Spirit of Texas all-star team, added, "I felt so confident that Bring It On was the perfect gig for me after hearing the creative team talk about their vision for the show at the audition… My biggest challenge so far has been adjusting to living in new places. Living out of one 50-pound suitcase while on tour and not being able to spend time with my family over the holidays posed a challenge – but it also taught me independence. I have become an expert packer and have practically conquered the subway system!"
