Ms. Courtney Knight
Assistant Dance Teams Director
My name is Courtney Knight and this is my first year here at New Caney High School. I am so excited to be working with all of the New Caney dance programs! I grew up in Kingwood, TX and graduated from Kingwood Park High School where I was an officer for the Silver Stars Dance Team. After high school I was a World Famous Kilgore College Rangerette where I got to perform in the Basel Tattoo in Switzerland as well as performing in the Cotton Bowl, at Disney World and at NFL halftimes. I also got to open the second coldest Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in history alongside Nappytabs and Meghan Sanett. While at Kilgore, I was also a part of Industry Dance Company, a modern and improvisation dance group, where I had the opportunity to attend multiple dance festivals as well as teach and assist at multiple schools across TX and at TDEA. I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor's of Science in Kinesiology with a Minor in Dance and also previously taught and choreographed as a competitive and studio dance teacher in Magnolia, TX. Additionally, I am a former TDEA Collegiate Assistant and I am a member of MA Dance Company Staff.
