Excellence in Dance Instruction for over 31 years

Pam Williams Davy began dancing at the early age of 5 .   Upon high school graduation, Miss Pam was accepted by audition as a Dance Major at the University of Oklahoma by one of Oklahoma's Indian Prima Ballerinas, Yvonne Chouteau and Professor Miguel Terenkov, formerly of the Monte Carlo Ballet and founders of the OU Dance Program.  Being trained in classical ballet, Miss Pam instills in  her students a love of ballet and all other forms of dance.

As the first dancer from McAlester to be accepted on the University of Oklahoma  Pom Squad, this tradition has been carried on by several of Pam's dancers being accepted on Pom squads  at OU, OSU, UCO, NEO, SEOKS, ECU,CSU, OKCU, EOS, AND THUNDER.

As former Coach/Director and Founder of the McAlester High School State and NATIONAL Champion Pom Squads, excellence in dance is evident by the squads being named state champs consecutively for many years. . As former coach of  MHS Pom Squad, Miss Pam continued to produce award winning squads each year with representation annually at the UDA National Competition at Disney World in Orlando, Florida that  is televised each year on ESPN.  IT ALL BEGINS WITH ONE SMALL DANCE STEP!
