Since coming into this position, the staff has worked to improve the atmosphere and culture in our gym by ensuring there is always transparency with parents.

I have been cheerleading for about 10 years. I started my cheerleading career at Center High School doing sideline cheer. I also started coaching at that time working with the youth on sideline cheers and basic stunting. After high school, I continued on my cheerleading career at Dynasty Athletics where I cheered and coached competitive cheer simultaneously. At that time, I was also cheering voluntarily with Capital Cheer Elite to support the Sacramento community by raising funds through donations from cheer performances. Moving on from Capital Cheer Elite,  I have the pleasure of being a founding Program Director of Sacramento Cheer Elite where we provide a home for adults to continue their love for cheer while also raising money for the community. 

In addition to those roles, I have coached for COA Elite for 3 years where I have built a home and found a family. I love the bonds I was able to find here at COA and have continued to strive to be better as a coach and a person so that I can set an example for my athletes to follow.

Meet Branson Inman II, but in the streets and on the stage, he’s better known as Deuce. This 16-year-old phenom has been tearing up the dance floor since he was just nine. Deuce isn’t just any dancer; he’s a hip-hop powerhouse with additional training in tap, jazz, and contemporary, making him a versatile force in the dance world.

Deuce’s journey is one of fierce passion and dedication. He’s not just danced; he’s lived and breathed every beat and rhythm, leading him to compete on some of the most prestigious stages known to the dance world. From wowing crowds and judges as a semi-finalist on “America’s Got Talent” to snagging gold like it’s going out of style at the Hip Hop International USA Finals, and even shining on the global stage with medals of every shade at the Hip Hop International World Finals, Deuce has proven he’s not here to play—he’s here to slay.

But don’t think for a second that this kid is all about the medals and the spotlight. Deuce is the kind of guy who lights up a room not just with his moves, but with his infectious laughter and knack for cracking jokes. He’s got a heart of gold and a genuine eagerness to lift others up, sharing his love for dance to inspire and ignite a similar passion in those around him.

Balancing the grind of the dance world with school ain’t easy, but Deuce makes it look like a breeze, maintaining a solid 3.5+ GPA and even representing on the school’s EA Sports team. Yeah, you read that right—when he’s not busting moves, he’s scoring goals, both literally and metaphorically.

Signed to the prestigious Clear Talent Agency out of Los Angeles, Deuce is making waves as a professional dancer, but his feet remain firmly planted on the ground. His heritage might be a rich tapestry, but it’s his humble spirit, relentless drive, and killer dance moves that truly define him.

Branson “Deuce” Inman II isn’t just any dancer; he’s a young king of the dance world, ready to rule not by dominating the spotlight, but by sharing it. Get ready to be inspired, motivated, and maybe even moved to dance. Because when Deuce hits the floor, it’s not just a performance; it’s a revolution.
