Austin Toros Hire New Dance Team Director

monicatorosThe Austin Toros announced the hire of Monica Aguilar of San Antonio, Texas as the team’s new Director and Choreographer for the Capital City Dance Team and the Toros Junior Dancers. A native of Austin, Aguilar danced for four years at Akins High School before attending UT San Antonio, where she eventually earned a spot with the Spurs’ Silver Dancers. She spent four seasons in San Antonio, two as a team captain. She also taught dance at numerous area studios and fitness clubs.

Aguilar welcomes the challenges of directing and mentoring at the D-League level. “I’m definitely excited to raise the bar and build on the sense of professionalism here,” she commented. “These women all come from different backgrounds and hopefully working hard and pulling the team together will bring out the best in them and me. I think we can build something really special.”

Aguilar, 23, inherits her new position from Terri Meyer, who led the Capital City Dancers for the Toros past three seasons. Open tryouts for the 2009-2010 dance team are scheduled for September.
