Nurse Dances Her Way To The Broncos Sidelines

DENVER (CBS4) – This football season there will be a nurse on the sidelines at Denver Broncos home games. She won’t be practicing her profession, but rather, her passion.

It took three attempts for the young woman to realize her dream. Now, she’ll be dancing for joy with the Broncos cheerleaders.

“It takes it to a kind of level in compassion and empathy and skill that I connect with,” Windey told CBS4 Health Specialist Kathy Walsh.

Windey has worked in ICU for three years. It can be stressful, but she has her own way of coping.

“With dance. It’s huge. That really helps get my mind off of everything,” Windey said.

Nursing is her profession, but dancing is Windey’s passion.

“When I’m dancing, nothing else matters,” she said.

She started dancing at age 12 and hasn’t stopped. Windey danced through high school and college. Last year, she was on the dance squad for the Denver Outlaws lacrosse team.

This year, she’s had a dream come true. On her third try, she made the Denver Broncos cheerleaders.

“They hold their girls to a really high standard and they also give back in the community, which is huge,” Windey said.

A patient’s bedside and a pro football sideline are very different worlds. But for Windey, they work.

She said she’ll be nervous when she performs at her first Broncos game as a cheerleader. At the hospital, Windey leans on her coworkers for support. She says she’ll do the same at Broncos games with two dozen dancers by her side.

A Sapphire’s golden opportunity

Many students play sports throughout their childhood and into high school, but a select few continue on to play their sport in college. From there, it’s only the best of the best that continue on professionally. It takes a certain kind of dedication and talent to enter the professional realm.

Erin Hardy, senior psychology major and dance minor, been given the opportunity to be a professional dancer. She will be dancing for the San Francisco 49ers Gold Rush cheer team for the 2016-2017 football season.

Hardy has been dancing her entire life. She started dance in kindergarten when it was an option to be in a ballet dance class instead of going to recess.

“I was pretty self motivated right from the beginning, but I also only wanted to take ballet and not branch out into any other style,” Hardy said.

Ballet became her passion and she continued to dance all throughout her childhood. Her mom encouraged her to try out for her high school dance team and she ended up being on the team for all four years. Hardy’s time in dance was not all glamour and fun.

“Before high school, I was dancing with a ballet company where I was bullied pretty bad. I was so conflicted because I hated the environment I was in but I loved ballet and performing,” said Hardy. “I did end up switching ballet schools, but I feel like if I hadn’t found my new school when I did I might have hit my breaking point and quit dance all together.”

She didn’t let the bullies win and she went on to continue dance throughout high school.

“My inspiration to continue has always come from trying to be the best possible role model I can be. Throughout the years, I wanted to set a good example for the younger girls on my team.” Hardy said. “Then, when people who had just seen me dance in shows would approach me and talk about how I inspired them to pursue dance and improve, I began to realize the impact I was having on others.”

Hardy knew she wanted to dance in college and joined the Sonoma State University Sapphires dance team her freshman year.

“Erin is a beautiful dancer, she is very passionate about dance and really cares about the overall success of the team. She is extremely friendly and just an overall genuine person,” said Erica Pecho, captain of the Sapphires.

Hardy was able to broaden her dance styles and gain confidence on the stage.

“Being on the Sapphires and being surrounded by dancers so talented and versatile has definitely helped me improve my own dance and performance skills,” Hardy said. “One style I really struggled with coming into college was hip hop, and three years ago I would have never thought I would be able to call myself a hip hop national champion.” The Sapphires won the Grand Hip-Hop Championship title for division II and III at their national competition.

Hardy decided she wanted to audition for the Goldrush team two years ago and she made it all the way to the final round. She was offered a position for a pre-game rally event at Great America, but not a spot on the team. “It was great experience and gave me a better idea of what I would be doing if I made the Goldrush,” Hardy said.

When the time came to audition this year, she was ready.

“Pro dance is always something I had in the back of my mind and I felt like the 49ers had the platform I was looking for,” Hardy said.

“I was really excited for Erin when I found out that she made the 49er cheerleaders. This was something she had wanted for a really long time, so I’m happy that she made the team. It’s great that all her work has paid off,” Teammate Lena Stephens said. “Not only that, it’s great that someone is representing Sonoma State and the Sapphires through this wonderful opportunity.”

Hardy is extremely grateful for the opportunity to dance professionally. “It is something I worked very hard to achieve. I hope by being on this team I can inspire young girls who have been bullied or who have low self-esteem. I want to prove to them that it is possible to accomplish a dream as long as you persevere and do not allow your insecurities to stand in your way,” Hardy said.

Brentwood Academy alum earns spot on Nashville Sounds dance team

Karli Whitson2By SAMANTHA HEARN

May 7, 2016

Brentwood Academy graduate Karli Whitson has had dreams of being a dancer ever since she first started high school, and the 21-year-old recently learned that she made the cut to be a Nashville Sounds dancer.

Whitson grew up dancing since the age of about three, hating it initially but finding a passion for it again around the 4th grade.

“I started competing around then and didn’t stop,” she said. “But once I graduated from high school, it was kind of the end of the competition scene.”

An exercise science major at Belmont University, Whitson began auditioning as a dancer for music videos and other roles in entertainment.

“Around the end of January I heard about auditions for the Sounds, so I auditioned and I got it,” she said. “I’m not the type of person to get very nervous at auditions, but honestly this was a little intimidating because it’s such a big thing.”

Whitson said the audition process included a one-minute dance routine to any song, and if a dancer made it past that round then they were brought back in on the same afternoon to learn a choreographed routine.

“They let us know about a month after that whether we made it or not,” Whitson said. “I did like a jazz, hip-hop routine for the first portion of the audition. That’s my speciality and what I grew up enjoying the most. A lot of other auditions just teach you a dance, and I feel really blessed that in this one they wanted to see our personalities and own style in addition.”

Whitson learned she made the team via email and in just a few weeks she was in rehearsals and learning new dances.

“We’re really always in game mode,” she said. “When there’s a game going on, we learn new dances during the innings. We are literally always working. It’s an amazing challenge.”

Whitson also played other sports in high school like softball, but said that when 9th grade hit and she continued dance she knew it was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life.

“At Belmont, my major allows me to learn about the body, understand it and study it,” she said. “I want to open my own dance studio one day so I can train girls how to understand and execute moves, understand the muscle systems you have to use to create those movements.”

Baseball season will end the first week of September, and Whitson will get back to her classes at Belmont.

“We will take a break which is nice because some of us go back to school or do other things,” she said. “Some of the girls on the team are with the Titans. A lot of us stay active. We’ll have to reaudition again in January or February.”

Whitson said her favorite thing about being a Sounds Dancer is that the team has been a strong support system.

“There are some of the best people in the business working for the Sounds,” she said. “One of the nicest things is having little kids come up to you and want to take their picture with you, it’s a humbling experience. We have 12 girls on the team and, in all honesty, it’s the best dynamic. There are different personalities and we all have different strong suits, and it’s really fun to pull that out of each other.”

WWE Hires Former Dolphins Cheerleader As Ring Announcer

Andrea D’Marco (Ocampo)2Florida Panthers Personality Andrea Ocampo D’Marco joins WWE NXT
By Jim Varsallone
Miami Herald
May 4, 2016

South Florida’s own Andrea D’Marco is a new ring announcer for WWE’s NXT.

For those who attended the NXT shows in March in Miami and West Palm Beach, you may recall Andrea working alongside NXT ring announcer Dasha Fuentes.

Andrea D’Marco is Andrea Ocampo, the former Florida Panthers In-Arena Host at the BB&T Center in (South Florida) Sunrise. A fan favorite, she also wore a few other hats while working with the NHL’s Panthers, including their Latin Market Manager and Reporter. Her work with the Panthers set the foundation for this WWE NXT opportunity.

“It wasn’t a one-stop shop situation,” Andrea said. “Jonny Greco, a producer for NXT, actually put the feelers out there to my old boss [Pete Soto] from the the Florida Panthers, the game presentation director, asking if he knew somebody — a Latina who could host — and see if he had any recommendations.”

Andrea OcampoSoto sure did

“He put my name into the hat,” she continued, “and that’s when everything started. Jonny Greco got a hold of me, and I put a video audition together and submitted that. Jonny called me, but unfortunately at the time I couldn’t make it to the [Performance Center in Orlando], because the Florida Panthers season was in full force.

“So I wasn’t able to do an in-person audition. Everything fell flat. Nothing happened. Then a couple of months later, I reached out to Jonny. We were speaking back-n-forth, and then I was told they were looking for the same position, and that’s when I definitely made it to the audition.”

While NXT made a South Florida trek in March, the Panthers competed on the road. So Andrea got her feet wet by working along side Fuentes at The Fieldhouse at the BankUnited Center at the University of Miami in Coral Gables and the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach.

“Thank goodness that I was a part of the NXT shows in South Florida,” she said, “and I was lucky that I got that opportunity to get a feel of the actual shows. The fact that it was in my hometown definitely made me feel a lot more comfortable, especially that I saw a lot of familiar faces in the audience.”

South Florida NXT fans — many also sports fans — welcomed her to this different genre of sport.

“It definitely wasn’t hockey,” she chuckled. “I knew I had so much to learn, but at the same time I knew I made the perfect decision. It was so much fun.”

Prior to joining WWE, the confident, lovely and inspiring talent discussed and showed (first-hand) her Panthers’ job duties which were aplenty. She noted Producer Alek Graupera, Samantha Lisowski, Viktor E and Stanley C. Panther were some who helped her elevate the fans’ in-arena experience throughout each Panthers’ home game.

Andrea was a Dolphins Cheerleader for three seasons (2001-2004).

Andrea was a Dolphins Cheerleader for three seasons (2001-2004).

A former NFL Miami Dolphins cheerleader, Andrea is a graduate of Western High School in (South Florida) Davie, where she was a Wildcats’ cheerleader.

“I grew up dancing and in the performance arts,” she said, “and then after high school, I auditioned for the Miami Dolphins [cheerleaders]. So cheerleading and dancing were always a huge, huge part of my life.”

Andrea attended Florida International University in Miami and the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. She is a professional salsa dancer and offers The Media Gypsy Blog. She also worked as the In-Stadium Host for NCAA Division I Florida Atlantic University football in Boca Raton and spent time as a travel host for Walt Disney World.

She loves fashion as evident by her elaborate wardrobe, and her favorite color is blue, which she will sometimes wear during events, when applicable. Fans see that, and now many more eyes will be on her and her attire in her new employment.

NXT, which grooms staff and talent for the WWE main roster, continues to develop, growing into its own hot pro wrestling brand, which is seen weekly — globally — on WWE Network. So it’s a very good time to be working for NXT.

“I want to be a better professional, and I want to be the best ring announcer that I can be,” she said. “I see that it’s a very dynamic opportunity with NXT, and I want to be an extension of the [NXT] team professionally and personally.”

Panthers loss, WWE’s gain

When the Florida Panthers were eliminated by the New York Islanders in a heartbreaker in overtime in Game 6 of the first round of the NHL Playoffs on Sunday, April 24, it didn’t take long for her to join her new team. She made her way to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando on Monday, April 25.

The Florida Panthers, her colleagues and fans said good-bye and thanked her via her Twitter, following that game. Some even noted they were WWE fans — sad she left the Panthers but happy she became a member of WWE, where they said they will continue to interact with her via social media.

And social media is something Andrea enjoys, especially when it involved interacting with fans before, during and after Panthers’ games.

She’ll enjoy it even more with a very active and expansive WWE social media following, making for a nice tag team with her and the WWE Universe.

Empowering women

Andrea also speaks to young women, discussing business acumen, life challenges and goal setting.

“I have a love for teaching,” she said, “and it’s important to give back, which is why I like mentoring young girls.”

Northampton native Lyndsey Raucher named to 2016 New England Patriots cheerleading squad

Lyndsey RaucherBy Adam Hargraves
Daily Hampshire Gazette
May 06, 2016

AMHERST — A Northampton native will share the Gillette Stadium field with the New England Patriots this fall.

After an arduous tryout process, Lyndsey Raucher was named to the New England Patriots cheerleading squad for the 2016 season.

“I cried,” Raucher said. “Tears of joy. It was something I never thought I could do.”

Raucher, who graduated from Northampton High School in 2014, is a member of the UMass dance team. She had a pair teammates try out and make the Patriots cheer squad in 2015 and decided to give it a shot for this season.

“They told me I would be good at it,” Raucher said. “I’ve wanted to dance for a professional sports team my whole life.”

On Sept. 18 when the Miami Dolphins visit Foxborough, Raucher will see her goal of being an NFL cheerleader become a reality.

“Performing in front of 70,000 people will be insanely exhilarating,” Raucher said. “The NFL is the goal. I can’t imagine what the home opener will be like. I hope I can rise to the occasion.”

The four-week tryout process started in early March with open auditions and concluded with a final audition and then boot camp. Out of the 420 participants only 33 were selected.

Following the lengthy tryout process, participants had one final test. Raucher had to select a song and choreograph a solo dance. With some help from her UMass teammates, Raucher performed to a Jennifer Lopez song featuring Pitbull called “Dance Again.”

“I knew I could make an impression on the judges but only if I nailed it,” Raucher said. “About 10 seconds into the music I got completely in my zone and had a lot of fun performing. Afterwards I was very excited with how it went and was hoping for the best.”

Raucher began her Patriots journey with an informational workshop. After that, she knew that she wanted to become a cheerleader for the Patriots.

“The whole environment seemed awesome,” Raucher said.

In addition to working home games, the Patriots cheering squad makes appearances on behalf of the organization.

“We are representatives of the franchise,” Raucher said. “We do juniors cheerleaders with little kids. We meet fans and go to fundraisers.”

The squad also has a rigorous practice schedule to go along with appearances.

Raucher started dancing at a young age before moving to competitive dancing at 10 years old. She wasn’t a cheerleader in high school, as her focus was dance and not stunting and tumbling. The Patriots cheerleading squad does do some cheering, but it is mostly a dance team similar to the UMass dance team.

“We are on the sidelines at football games with pompoms,” Raucher said of her UMass squad. “But we dance.”

The sophomore is a double major in communications and history. With multiple career aspirations, Raucher’s options could multiply working at Gillette Stadium.

“A lot of good people work for the Krafts,” Raucher said. “There are a lot of prestigious companies all intertwined with the Patriots. There are a lot of opportunities. It’s a great thing for your resume.”

The Miami Dolphins Cheerleader Squad Expands Internationally

The Miami Dolphins Cheerleading squad for the 2016 season is closer to being finalized after 40 women were selected to advance at the annual “Finals” audition show. Hopefully you saw David Tyau’s splendid photo portfolio on Friday. The ladies will now move on as Training Camp Candidates. The process is described as a seven-week boot camp; Whoa, that seems new this year?
.
The Dolphins, under Dorie Grogan, Senior Director of Entertainment & Brand Impact, always seem to be near the NFL top in creative innovative thinking with their iconic cheer squads. Remember the “Call Me Maybe Parody”, a skillion web hits!
.
The Dolphins have again moved outside the box to become the first NFL squad to expand its cheer auditions outward south from the Florida Peninsula. “Miami is the gateway to Latin America and the Miami Dolphins are a global brand. We are excited to combine the beauty we have in South Florida with the ladies we met in Latin America in hopes of forming a truly international squad,” said Grogan. Twelve of the selected forty are from the international candidates.
.
The Dolphins have everything in place to make the international women transition to a new life in Miami as smooth as possible. “Ladies selected to be a part of the final team will be required to relocate to the Miami area for nine months. As we do for players, employees and cheerleaders who are not local to the area, we have a process to get them settled.” Grogan explained.
.
One of the most prestigious entertainment groups in all of professional sports, Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders have traveled to more than 30 countries on five continents over the past decade and continue to be the international face of NFL Cheerleaders.
.
Our thanks goes out to Jamie Quadrozzi, Senior Manager Game Entertainment and Cheerleaders, for inviting Ultimate Cheerleaders to cover the auditions. Looking forward to gameday.

Titans Director of Cheerleaders called Sunday night’s competition, sponsored by Price’s Collision Centers, “extremely close” among the finalists.

“We had a really great pool of talent this year, and frankly, all 47 of our final candidates were well qualified to be Titans cheerleaders,” Kinder said.

The squad had been trimmed from nearly 200 to 47 ladies during preliminary auditions held last month at Nissan Stadium.

The finalists spent the last few weeks rehearsing, while undergoing formal business interviews with Kinder.

A panel of celebrity judges that included Dianna Williams (from the hit Lifetime series “Bring It”), singer/song writer Michael Tyler, WKRN’s Dawn Davenport, and award-winning producer Michael Knox helped narrow the field to 27 ladies on Sunday night.

The Titans cheerleaders will next conduct their own training camp later this off-season, photo shoots for their 2016-17 calendar and game prep for the upcoming season.
