Negri Speaker Series Presents: Life is Short, Don’t Wait to Dance with Valorie Kondos-Field
September 19 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Former ballet dancer Valorie Kondos-Field never played organized sports, yet the UCLA Athletic Hall of Fame gymnastics coach was a seven-time NCAA champion, four-time national coach of the year and Pac-12 gymnastics coach of the century. Having an extraordinary ability to lead and mentor young gymnasts, Coach Kondos used the sport as an opportunity to teach valuable life lessons and empower her student-athletes to use their voices and celebrate themselves. A recent breast cancer survivor, Miss Val’s positive outlook and hope-filled message is not about winning and losing, but about choreographing your life and owning the choices you make.
