The Milford Department of Athletics is pleased to announce the hiring of Kennedy Fails as the new head coach of the highly-successful Eagle Dance program. Fails is an accomplished dancer and choreographer who enjoyed stints as a collegiate and professional dancer. Her hiring is pending approval by the Milford Exempted Village School District Board of Education.

"We’re so fortunate to bring someone of Kennedy's ability to our Dance Program at Milford,” Milford Director of Athletics Aaron Zupka stated. “Great dance coaches are few and far between and I believe we have one of the best in the area if not in the entire state in Coach Fails! She brings extensive experience in the cheer/dance world, including at the collegiate and professional levels. Her choreography is second to none and she will continue to build on our championship tradition and pedigree in the Milford High School Dance program!”

“I’m so grateful for the opportunity to coach these young and talented athletes through their dance journey,” Fails added. “By working with this program in the past, these dancers can expect me to bring energy, creativity and authenticity. Everyone buckle up, it’s about to be a great ride!!”

The Milford Dance team has won back-to-back Eastern Cincinnati Conference titles.
