Meet the Reign Dance Company Staff
Angie Bunday is an elementary school teacher in Eugene with a Master’s degree in Elementary Education and Minor in Special Education from the University of Oregon. She has always dreamed of opening a studio to provide dance opportunities for all ages in a positive and welcoming environment. When the stars aligned, Angie jumped at the chance to make it happen.
Dance has been a part of her life since she was five years old. She was fortunate to have dance and gymnastics classes and programs in the Portland area growing up through her elementary and middle schools, where she learned and loved the art of dance, gymnastics and performance. When she joined the Scottish Tams at David Douglas High School, she caught dance team fever, and was a four-year member of the team under the direction of Coach Lynette Velasquez, an incredible and accomplished coach and dancer. They were State Champions in 2000 with their Show routine, a moment she is very proud of.
Angie attributes her life success to her involvement in dance team, where she learned the value of hard work, grit, and dedication. After high school, she became an Oregon Duck. Angie took collegiate dance courses and danced for several local teams and programs, but through all her college years, she missed dance team greatly. It was fate that around that time she met Lisa Gilliam, the previous Head Coach at North Eugene High School and previous owner of The Dance Factory studio. She was a volunteer Assistant Coach for six years under Coach Gilliam and learned so much from her.
This year is her third year as Head Coach, and her ninth season at North Eugene High School. In her first year as Head Coach, the team took home their first State trophy in the program’s history with a 4th Place finish at the OSAA State Championships. She also began the Corridor Armadill-OHs Dance Troupe at her elementary school eight years ago, which is open to all kindergarten through fifth grade students at her school. She has a five-year-old son, Logan, who you may see running around the studio from time to time.
In 2017, Angie was named 5A Coach of the Year at the OSAA Dance & Drill State Championships.
Belle Murray quickly fell in love with dance in 2007 after joining the North Eugene Dance Team. She spent all four years of high school as an active team member and was named Head Captain her junior and senior years. She graduated with Varsity letters in 2011. During her time in high school, she also served as the Dance Coordinator & Choreographer for the 2010 and 2011 Mr. North pageants. Today, she is still connected with North Eugene as an Assistant Coach and choreographer for their Varsity dance team.
Her studio experience began in 2009 when she started dancing at a local studio in Eugene. During her 7 years there, she danced with 3 of their performance groups, both hip hop and jazz, at various levels. She instructed and choreographed for the middle school aged jazz and hip hop group for 4 years.
She graduated from the University of Oregon in 2015 with a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism. Today, she works for a Web Design and Internet Marketing agency in Eugene, while also staying highly dedicated to her love of dance. She is passionate about all genres, but has a special place in her heart for hip hop.

She immediately fell in love with dance and went on to join the Thurston Cabaret at Thurston High School.

During that same year, she was chosen to be a member of the All-State Dance Team, and was a recipient of the academic scholarship from the DDCA.
After graduating, Courtney went on to become an assistant coach at Thurston High School along with being a teaching assistant at Thunderbird Dance Camp. She joined a collegiate dance company for three years, competing both group pieces and solos.
