Re: “Danehy

I too was on the UA Twirling squad (Twirling Circus) in the early 70's. I fell in love with Shirlee Bertolini because I too am a Shirley (and a redhead)! She gave me a place to belong at the UA and I learned to do things I never knew I could. I too was a self-taught twirler (my mother had been a twirler in her younger days on the east coast), but Shirlee and my other team-mates from 1973 & 1974 helped me polish my skills and helped me gain self confidence. I loved performing in Arizona Stadium. I also loved practicing under the guidance of someone who cared so much about us as individuals and as a team.

The highlights of my years with Shirlee were being chosen to go on a trip to Guadalajara, Mexico, being a part of the Arizona Bicentennial Band in 1976 that marched in Washington, D.C. for the Bicentennial Parade, and just being a part of a wonderful group of girls and a proud tradition!

I am very proud to have been a part of the UA Twirling history and to have twirled under Shirlee Bertolini and band director Jack Lee.
