Lake Charles native dances in Carrie Underwood music video
LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - It's every young girl's dream to dance among the stars in a popular music video.
Now Heidi Hankin, a former Barbe Bluebell has finally hit the spotlight in Carrie Underwood's new music video, "Cowboy Casanova."
"I just love to perform," says Hankin. "I love being in a big arena with tons of people around and just getting to smile."
Hankin began dancing when she was 6 years old.
"I did a little bit of everything really," says Hankin. "I took ballet, tap, and Jazz."
These classes prepared her to become a Barbe Bluebonnet, an LSU Tiger Girl, and something a little more than that.
Just one week after starting her senior year at LSU, Hankin auditioned to dance in a country music video being filmed in New Orleans.
"We had about an hour and a half to get to there once we heard about it,"says Hankin.
The choreographer just filmed us doing free style," says Hankin.
Within a matter of days, Hankin was dancing alongside singer Carrie Underwood.
"It's still really exciting," says Hankin. "Whenever I think it's calmed down a little bit, somebody else will write on my facebook wall or call me."
