Nicole Thebeau (Owner)


My name is Nicole Thebeau. I have been married to my husband, Jeff, for 18 years. I have 3 beautiful children and 2 fur babies. At the age of 2 I began what would become my life-long passion, dancing. At the age of 7, a memorable impression was left upon me by one of the most influential dance teachers ever, the late Stacy Sandefur. I danced on Stacy’s competitive clogging team for several years!! After high school I married my husband, raised my children, and worked for the City of Springhill. In 2016, the ACE program was offered to me. With my children raised it was time to return to dance/cheer. Raising these athletes/dancers in the same competitive world I was brought up in is an honor. ACE instills hard work, dedication, teamwork, and many other lifelong lessons in each student. 


Ember Green (Administration)

My name is Ember. I am 24 years old and have been married to my husband, Matt, for 3 years. I am currently a Registered Nurse working in the Emergency Room and I attend school fulltime! I also own a women's clothing boutique. I started dancing 20 years ago and enjoy the time I spend at the ACE gym. Watching the girls work hard and seeing their faces when it finally comes together is the best part of working at ACE!


Dana Sanders (Administration/Cheer/Tumbling Instructor)

Hey I’m coach Dana! I have been married to my husband, Steve, for 15 years. I have 2 beautiful children. I have 3 fur babies, Jorje, Luna, and Buck. I am the co-owner/director of Care A Lot Childcare Center where I am an early childcare provider. I have also been coaching at ACE for 2 years now! My most favorite thing about coaching is being with the kids, watching them grow and learn, but mostly that look in their eyes when a student or team accomplish something, they didn’t think they could.


Lindsey Owens (Cheer Choreographer/Instructor)

Hey! I’m Lindsey! I am 23 years old. I am a Hair Stylist, cheer choreographer, instructor, and tumbling coach. I have been a cheer coach at ACE since 2013. Cheerleading has been a huge part of my life. I began cheering at the age of 10. During college I cheered for The University of Louisiana at Monroe. In the summer of 2015, I became a UCA Louisiana Staff Member. Also, during college, I was a Junior High and High school cheer coach at River Oaks School in Monroe, Louisiana. The best part about being a cheer coach is watching their faces light up when they hit that stunt, nail that tumbling pass, or win that big trophy at the end of the year. Nothing makes me happier than a little girl doing what she loves.


Lauren McWilliams (Hiphop Choreographer & Instructor)

Hey, I’m Lauren. I am 23 years old and I work for a commercial insurance broker in Shreveport. I’ve been dancing for 20 years now and I have been coaching at ACE since 2015!! My favorite thing about working at ACE is getting to choreograph the hiphop routines! I also love watching the girls perform in front of hundreds of people!


Shawna Patterson (Cheer/Tumbling Instructor)

Hey I’m coach Shawna! I am 28 years old. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Ben, for 6 years. I have 3 gorgeous children. I began cheering and dancing at the age of 12. I have been teaching/coaching children since the age of 14! It is my passion. I have been working at ACE as a cheer & tumbling coach full time for 3 years now. My favorite thing about coaching is watching life lessons be instilled in the athletes and watching them grow. ACE teaches them much more than cheerleading, dancing, and tumbling. It is an honor to be part of that process!


Jay Willis ( Tumbling/Stunt Instructor)

My name is Coach “Heavy” (Jay). I am 26 years old. I cheered at Louisiana Tech University for 4 years. I have a master’s degree in Kinesiology with a specialization in Sports Performance where I studied gymnastics and cheerleading intensively while pursuing my degree. I have been coaching for 4+ years and have worked with numerous cheer teams and gyms including The University of Louisiana at Monroe where I am currently a coach. My favorite thing about coaching is the vicarious experience of watching my athletes reach their goals.
