Dance Troupe Performer Appeared on ‘Glee’ TV Show

Methodist Health System will hold its annual Heart to Heart event for the Methodist Dallas and Methodist Charlton medical center communities on Saturday, Feb. 18, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Uptown Village in Cedar Hill. This free community event for women’s heart health will feature healthy advice from physicians and nutritionists; free health screenings; fun exercise demonstrations and advice from exercise experts; door prizes; sampling of healthy cuisine by various restaurants; and special deals and sales from merchants throughout the shopping center. Enjoy dance performances of Samba, African dance and more, and get up and move with them. Methodist’s Heart to Heart event is a fun-filled day to encourage women, their families, and friends to stay heart healthy and improve overall wellness — especially in view of the stark statistic that heart disease strikes one of every two women in the United States.

One of the performers at Heart to Heart will be Vicki Woodlee with the Texas School Dancers. Woodlee, a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, Mesquite resident, and lifelong dancer, recently appeared on an episode of the popular TV show “Glee” which is co-produced and choreographed by her son, Zach Woodlee. When her sons were young, Woodlee owned a dance studio in Mesquite called Juz’ Danzin’. “Zach is the only one who followed in my footsteps by staying involved with dance,” she says. The “Glee” episode where Woodlee appeared as a member of a senior group of continuing-education students aired this past November.
