The Pom Squad is coached by Anna Itman. As a 1996 graduate of EPHS, Anna fully understands the commitment, talent, and dedication required of the dancers. She has high expectations for the girls and supports them as individuals as well as dancers. Anna holds a Bachelor of Arts in Dance from St. Olaf College. She is a freelance choreographer and studio instructor. The University of Kansas, University of Delaware, Sam Houston State University, North Dakota State University, the Minnesota Timberwolves Extreme Team and the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders have commissioned her work. She is committed to excellence within the program. In addition, Anna believes that communication is the key to our success.

Caroline Byrd began her Pom Squad journey as a younger sibling and spectator, later making the team herself and graduating from EPHS in 2010. She is ecstatic to be back and begin her first year as Pom Squad’s assistant coach. Caroline graduated from University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and Art History. As an undergraduate, she was both a coach and member of Dance Elite, a student-run club dance team, while also directing and choreographing a year-long musical production called Humorology, the largest philanthropy in the state of Wisconsin. Caroline believes the keys to success are team unity and personal determination. As a coach, she hopes to inspire the dancers to believe in their abilities and never settle
