2016 Phoenix Suns Dancers Auditions

This past Saturday, I made the trek to the Valley of the Sun to cover the 2016 Phoenix Suns Dancers Auditions.  The Suns have a new coach, Earl Watson a former standout at U.C.L.A. whose NBA playing career spanned over a decade, and there is a tangible sense of excitement over the team’s future prospects.  And this excitement extended over to the Suns Dancers auditions, which drew over 80 hopefuls to the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.

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.
