The intriguing story of our beloved Bowie Dance Team Captain, Leslye Castorena. Although Castorena lives in Ciudad Juarez, Castorena still makes time for the activities she loves. 

“I have to wake up at 5 in the morning and I have to leave her and get home at 8pm because it really is stressful but it’s really worth it coming to school and having to dance,”Castorena explain. 

“I maintain my life together by trying my hardest and dedicating my time to each of my different things that I do,” Castorena said.

Castorena is the dance captain, mainly being the reason that she loves to dance, well dedicated, and intrigued to dance. It’s her greatest passion, which makes her a good candidate for the role.

“I love dancing its my passion its always been ever since I was a little girl so it’s not actually and obstacle for my lIfe it’s just been something to free myself form work and all this stressful things,” Castorena said.

“It’s not hard but it’s work so you have to work for it you have to be responsible,” Castorena said.

“Respectful, you have to be on top of everybody’s things, and make everybody have everything in order.” Castorena said.

This is Castorena’s 2nd year as Captain. According to her dance team members, she is an extraordinary captain, and she has many motivations and clearly loves what she’s doing.
