Get to Know our Interns: Rane Cegelski

As a little kid I always loved music, and performing, but I didn’t start dancing until I was in middle school where I tried out for my schools show choir. I later performed for Preble High School’s Center Stage Show Choir. After that I loved being on stage and entertaining people. I continue to work with the Preble High School show choirs as a choreographer. After I graduated from Preble High School I started Ballroom Dancing and knew this is what I loved to do.

I’m currently an employee for the Greater Green Bay YMCA as a Lifeguard, Swim Instructor, and Teen Night Staff. I love working with kids and helping others as much as I possibly can.

I’m also a Wisconsin State Champion in both American and International genres. My all-time favorite dances are the Waltz because of the grace and body control, and the Jive… It fits my witty and energetic personality.

I support the Red Cross as a 2 gallon blood donor, and because of the variety of services that they provide to the community. I’m certified as a Lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor, and in CPR/AED. I will soon be an instructor for the Red Cross. I also enjoy playing volleyball and swimming, but of course music and dancing are my main hobbies.
