Meet Nikki Marie!

I’m so excited to be one of your Dancing Stars! I’m Nikki Marie and I wear many hats...or crowns as I like to call them. God has blessed me with 5 beautiful children who are the center of my kingdom. I am also a Realtor and Business Owner. I enjoy bringing my creativity, big brain, high heels and even higher ambition into the boardroom.

I am a proud leader (along with Rhonda Pilkington) of the “Moms of New Braunfels Uncensored”, an 8k member Facebook group, which is a platform to provide women with a voice and a place to find community. In conjunction with MONBU, I run a nonprofit called the “Uncensored Fund” which helps our members in need with emergency assistance for things like gas, rent and utilities. I am an avid believer in women supporting women in both life and business! Once a month I lend my interviewing skills and my platform to promote a different local business. I’ve gotten to meet many amazing business owners this way!

When I’m not doing all the above mentioned activities, you can find me either in the kitchen or at the river, because I believe that a good home-cooked meal and time with loved ones can solve almost anything! What I lack in dance skills I hope to make up for in enthusiasm, optimism...and a killer costume. No matter which star you are voting for (although I hope it is me!), I THANK YOU for supporting CYT and the Uncensored Fund. These are amazing organizations! LET’S DANCE!

Meet Tyson Oak Carver!

After spending most of his years in central Texas, Tyson Oak Carver landed in New Braunfels 7 years ago. Through various work and hobby communities, this area quickly began to feel like home. As a Realtor with Keller Williams for the past 6 years, Tyson has been pleased to help numerous people come to make this community their home also. 

Tyson began playing violin at age 3 with his twin brother, and music has been a part of his life ever since. For the last 17 years, he has been a part of the band Texas Renegade, and although they don't play as often as they used to, Tyson has found other musical outlets to keep himself creatively entertained. Eight years ago, he began riding motorcycles. He has traveled by motorcycle from Alaska to California to Mexico and has even been building custom bikes for the last 5 years. He is also happy to give his time a few mornings a week co-hosting a radio show in Wimberley which has led him to his charity of choice for this event. Wimberley Valley Radio has been an important part of the community and thanks to your contributions, this will help them continue into the future. 

Tyson tries to live his life with an attitude of adventure, so he added flying paramotors to the mix a few years ago too. He figures if he could make it through the years on the road playing music, motorcycle trips through the wilderness, and flying a box fan into the sky, he would try something truly terrifying and add dancing in public to the mix! Tyson will be dancing for CYT and Wimberley Valley Radio.

Meet Sally Singley!

Sally Singley and husband, Tom, found each other when they were both single and each raising a son in San Antonio. They fell in love, got married and in 1995 they moved to New Braunfels.  They love the charm of this beautiful community and are glad to have made some good friends in the almost 25 years they’ve lived here.  Sally is an insurance agent and loves working for Barnard Donegan Insurance, where she’s been employed for the last 21 years.  

Sally’s love of dance started as a young girl when she would come home after school to watch “Shirley Temple” the iconic child star who danced in just about every episode.  Shirley Temple was her inspiration and Sally bugged her parents to enroll her in dance classes, but they couldn’t afford it.  She then turned to her grandmother and bugged her to please pay for the lessons… and, of course, she did!  (Aren’t all grandparents like that?)  All through high school and college she dreamed that one day she would either own her own dance studio or be a professional dancer traveling the world - neither of which came to pass.  She married, had a child and life took on a different path – dance took a back seat.  Today, Sally is a proud grandmother of 3; Austin Jacob 24, Anna Sophia 15 and Lauren Elise 12. 

Sally is an avid fan of “Dancing with the Stars”, “World of Dance” and “So You Think You Can Dance”.  Since she will be 67 years old in December, Sally is beyond excited to have the opportunity to perform on “Dancing with the Stars NB”.  She realizes she’s “no spring chicken” and can’t do the things she was once able to do when her limbs were long, lean and limber, but she’s going to give it a whirl!   She realizes that each day is a gift and is grateful for her good health. Sally says that every morning when she wakes up she tells herself: “I'll never be as young as I am today. Today is the youngest day of the rest of my life.  Get up and do something fun!”  Sally is dancing for CYT and Steve's Pantry
