The Winter Dance Company FlyGirls are under the direction of Head Coach Janèsa Richardson, Assistant Coaches Komonique Knighten & Elisha Jenkins, Performance Administrator Kirsten Thomas, and Artistic Director Winter McCray.

All prospects must audition (including returning members). Being a member of the team, does not guarantee reinstatement for the following year. Members are selected by an impartial panel of qualified judges on their poise, technique, skills, dedication, and showmanship. Each candidate should be in good physical condition due to the vigorous nature of the physical activity required.

A FlyGirl shall provide a spirit-promoting service, be loyal, have high morals and standards, be a good example in and out of school, and develop self-discipline and confidence. She shall also have poise, good posture, and present a good appearance. Being a FlyGirl is an honor. In order to be as “good” as our tradition and history warrants, hard work and discipline are basic components of the program. A FlyGirl’s commitment is to both academics and to the FlyGirls team. All FlyGirls must maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher.

Prestigious, poised, consistent, determined, attitude-free, and dedicated. With good grades, high standards, beautiful skin, and pleasant personalities, we are your Winter Dance Company FlyGirls.
