Simma X Savannah

Where to begin…I have danced my entire life, but I have never danced at the level I had during the NFL Simma training program. I have a similar story as most other dancers who started dancing at a young age, however my journey and the challenges that came with it set my story apart from most.

I was a competitive dancer from age 2 – 14, but I stopped dancing at a studio mainly because of physical changes that began happening. I was always the cute curly haired girl who was bursting with personality and solid technique, but around the age of 10 my body started to put on weight and by that age it was clearly not cute baby chub. Unfortunately, my dance teachers lost confidence in me, which then led to me losing confidence in myself. Imagine how you would feel and how hard it would be when you’re just a kid already dealing with self-image issues. My passion for dance started to fade.

Simma X Selena

There are so many things I would like to say about this profession and my passion that burns for it. But to begin, I am here to tell you this. If as a dancer you’ve ever been self-conscious of your skills or your body or your creativity… I’ve been there and I still to this day battle with this.

I started dancing when I was four years old in Frederick, Maryland. Starting out I was a part of a really amazing competitive dance studio for three years, but my father got a new job and before I knew it we moved to a small town called DeLand, Florida. The first thing my mom did was find my little sister and I a new dance studio. I learned so much of my technique and dance foundation at my second studio but if you’ve ever been a part of a dance studio I’m sure you can understand that differences may come up (hello dance mom’s. aggressively rolls eyes). Studio three comes along and finally we found a home where I really learned the meaning of performance!

And Here It Is...The Simma Wear Blog Is Now Up And Running!

Allow me to (re)introduce myself, my name’s Simmone…

and I’m the owner of Simma Wear and the Simma Wear Training Program!

I never thought in a billion years I would start a blog, to be quite honest, I’m a pretty private person and not a hug fan of the spotlight (unless it’s on a stage of course). However, over the last couple of weeks I’ve felt the need to do this. And here’s why..

Both during and after my time dancing for the Golden State Warriors, I’ve found myself constantly defending not only this world but my own character. Whether it’s the dreaded “Did you even get paid when you were a cheerleader?” or the famous “Did you ever date the players?”… two things were certain: One, people are intrigued by this life and two, there’s always been such a huge misconception of pro dancers and cheerleaders out there.
