Most people only dream of being able to do something they enjoy and love on television. One junior at Memorial who has been a dancer since age three, Treasure Wensauer, was able to live out that dream and compete on the reality show “World of Dance.”

The process of being part of the show was not like anything Wensauer had participated in before.

“It was a whirlwind for my team,” Wensauer said. “The producers called us to say they had seen a video of us dancing on Youtube and they wanted us to be in Atlanta the next day to audition again.”

Team Intention, Wensauer’s troop, includes Breanne Elwell, Kamryn Funk, Avery Mathena, Addison Taron, Brianna Haith, Mackenzie Baumert, Peyton Winsett and Kendall Schmidt.

“The nine of us compete all over the country,” Baumert said. “We are like a little family!”

Wensauer and her team trained together diligently to prepare for the show.

“We rehearsed for four to nine hours everyday until we flew to California to compete,” Wensauer said.

Competing on live television was a complete new experience to Wensauer and her team, and it was much different than normal dance competitions.

“We weren’t just in front of our family and other audience members. We were performing in front of celebrities, a full audience and knowing we would be on national television for everyone to see,” Wensauer said. “It was nerve racking.”

Since Wensauer has been dancing for a majority of her life, she feels as though she’s been preparing for this opportunity throughout her entire dance career.  

“In my experience hard work pays off,” Wensauer said. “My advice to other dancers is to always keep working and to never give up.”

Watch Wensauer performing on “World Of Dance” Sundays at 7pm on NBC.
