Tampa Bay Storm Host Cheerleader Alumni

Great victory last Saturday night as the Storm blocked a field goal on the last play of the game to secure a 41 to 40 win over the Portland Steel. Fun evening as the Storm alumni dancers/cheerleaders returned for a night of great frolic and celebration of the 25th year anniversary of the franchise.

A little AFL history: The team, along with the Chicago Bruisers, Denver Dynamite and Washington Commandos, formed the league as one of the charter franchises in 1987, and is the only one of the four still operating. The franchise was originally located in Pittsburgh. The team relocated to Tampa in 1991, changing its name in the process.

The 1991 season saw the advent of cheerleaders (called dancers then) and they have been entertaining fans ever since.

Two members, Melinda and Kimberly,  of the original 1991 squad returned for the reunion and danced in the halftime performance.

The present day squad is led by Director Kindra Stocker Ebanks. Starting in 1998, Kindra spent three seasons as a Storm cheerleader, also serving as captain. Kindra took over the Director position in the championship year of 2003. At the request of the AFL, Kindra was selected to be Co-Director and Choreographer for the Arena Bowl All-Star Dancers in the 2004 and 2005 seasons.

2016 P-R-O Convention All Star: Houston Texans Cheerleader Taylor C.

As we wind down our coverage of the 2016 P-R-O Convention, I just want to say that is was another great year and I was so fortunate to meet so many amazing professional cheerleaders and dancers.  It was truly a wonderful experience and if you have a passion for dance, you should be there next year.

Our final 2016 P-R-O Convention All Star is another one of those amazing Houston Texans Cheerleaders.  She is a first year member of the HTC and graduated with a degree in accounting, introducing Taylor C., our final 2016 P-R-O Convention All Star.

2016 P-R-O Convention All Star: Arizona Cardinals Cheerleader Ashley

I have been covering the Arizona Cardinals Cheerleaders auditions since 2009 and I enjoy my time there because its a wonderful event to cover and I get some amazing photographs of some amazing cheerleaders.  So you could say I have a fondness for the AZCC and I was pleased to see them in attendance after a one year absence.  Our next 2016 P-R-O Convention All Star is a first year Arizona Cardinals Cheerleader from Friendswood, Texas…introducing Ashley.

2016 P-R-O Convention All Star: Charlotte Honey Bees Twins Kirsten and Kristen

Twins! I love twins! Especially twin professional cheerleaders because there is a certain symmetry about them and I get a kick out of watching them pose themselves. It’s so fascinating watching them interact with each other…like when they were trying to pose while making a heart with their hands. But I digress.

Our next 2016 P-R-O Convention All Stars are a couple of those amazingly beautiful Charlotte Honey Bees…introducing Honey Bee twins Kirsten and Kristen (cute play on names, eh?).

2016 P-R-O Convention All Star: Seattle Sea Gal Melanie

I first met Melanie in 2009 when she was a San Diego Charger Girl.  Back then I discovered that she was a Californian from Rancho Palos Verdes who had recently moved back to Southern California from Seattle, where she was a former Seattle Sea Gal.  If memory serves correctly, she was a Charger Girl for one season and starred as one of the Ironettes in the movie Iron Man 2.

Flash forward to a couple of years later and Melanie is back as a Sea Gal and has been on the squad since 2013.  Well as fortune would have it, she became a captain this year and was one of the Sea Gals that made it to Atlanta for the convention.  And for me, it was nice to see her again after all these years.

So, without further ado, let us introduce our latest 2016 P-R-O Convention All Star, Seattle Sea Gal Melanie.
