Galactic Dancers at the Battle of Cologne XV

Michael Fischer, our European Correspondent, has sent us some news and photos regarding the state of German Cheerleading.
 
This season, the Galactic Dancers (headed by Tamara Kurti) have gotten support from former U.S. pro cheerleader and model Christine Lynn C. from Honolulu.
 
 

Christine studied Fine Arts at the California State University at Los Angeles and has lived in Chicago.  She danced with the NBA Chicago Luvabulls Dancers and she was selected as Mrs Waikiki 2016 and 2017.  Christine lives with her family in Heidelberg Germany, near the U.S Army Base and she drives to the Galactic Dancers training session from Heidelberg to Frankfurt Main, a long drive, every week.
 
 
This month Christine and the Galactic girls visited Düsseldorf for cheerleader performances on a big party ship along the Rhein River.  These performances were the highlight of the NFL Europa Fans memorial weekend – Battle of Cologne XV.  Tickets were sold out some months ago and some American Football Fans disguised themselves as pirates.
 
 
The ship sailed from Düsseldorf to Cologne and back, 9 hours of non-stop partying on deck.  In the middle of the crowd the cheerleaders. During the breaks between performances, the Galactic Dancers took some selfies and posed with some of the fans for a group shot.
 
 
Cheers,
Michael
