Cheerleader Ali Of The Tampa Bay Buccaneers

We had a chance to chat with fan favorite Ali this week regarding her recent trip to Mexico City for the NFL sponsored Super Bowl Fan 10K Race. Ali is an avid sports spectator and we recently ran into her at a Lightning Hockey game.

UC: Welcome to Ultimate Cheerleaders. Before we begin our chat about your recent Mexico City trip why don’t you tell our readers about yourself.

Ali: My name is Ali, I’m a 3rd year veteran and 1st year team captain! I’m a Colorado native, turned Floridian when I took a leap of faith in 2014 to pursue my dream to become a Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleader and I haven’t looked back since! I’m a fitness instructor at Pure Barre South Tampa, spin instructor at SoHo Cycling Studio and currently in the process of starting up a small business. Football and this team has shaped me into the young woman that I am today. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have my whole heart and I’m truly blessed to be a part of such an incredible organization!

UC: Please share with us the highlights of your trip. Is there NFL fever in Mexico?

Ali: By far one of the coolest moments in Mexico City was minutes before the race started. They played over the loud speakers, what would be our rendition of the national anthem. It gave me chills and just made me smile from ear to ear. To be able to see every participant proudly sing and stand tall was so incredible. It also showed us their culture. We were immersed and right smack dab in the middle of it. This whole experience was completely humbling!

There is definitely NFL Fever in Mexico City! During the NFL Mexico Fan Race, everybody was wearing their jersey and sporting their favorite team. The amazing part is that there was so much variety! There wasn’t an overwhelming amount of one team or the other, it was all over the board. You could just see the pure enjoyment that this city has for football and it’s culture. Being a cheerleader for the NFL gives you these opportunities to meet fans, talk, interact, and get to know them outside of performing on Game Days. Mexico City welcomed us with open arms! I felt like a local celebrity, they could not wait to speak with us or take pictures.

UC: The Buccaneers have a great slate of home games this coming season, what are you looking forward to the most in the 2017 season?

Ali: The 2017 season could not come soon enough! I not only love to dance, and have done it my whole entire life, but I grew up watching football. Its the culture, the vibe, the whole game day experience that makes it what it is today. With such a great home game schedule coming up in 2017, I’m most looking forward to that moment, those few seconds before we take the field for pre game with those sold out games. That feeling will never change! It’s the same nerves the same excitement…the feeling of wanting to nail every dance and shine our brightest. I also can’t wait to hear those cannons fire! Go Bucs!!

UC: Thank you Ali, the Tampa Bay fans are lucky to have such an enthusiastic and talented cheerleader representing their team. Good luck.

Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders Announce 2017 Auditions!

From the MVC:

If you are outgoing, a terrific spokeswoman, a great role model, love the Minnesota Vikings and can confidently represent the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders, then we want you!   

When you think of The Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders you probably picture the women performing on the field at Minnesota Vikings home games. But the MVC are so much more than that. The MVC are an integral part of the total NFL fan experience at U.S. Bank Stadium. The MVC have traveled around the world to meet with football fans. They have spread Skol spirit throughout Vikings country, at the Pro Bowl in Hawaii, at NFL games abroad, and at military bases stateside and overseas. You don’t need to be a dancer to be a part of the MVC and have the experience of a lifetime. We have both Dancer and Ambassador positions to fill on our team for the upcoming 2017 season. Spread the word and invite your friends to audition with you.

With the high demand for the MVC, we expanded our team in 2016 and now have two equally important, but different roles for you to choose from. The two roles allow us to broaden our presence on game day and in the community, as well as provide greater opportunity for women to participate. The MVC Dancers will focus on dance/cheer performances on the field on game day. The MVC Ambassadors will be active during all home games visiting Suites and Club areas at U.S. Bank Stadium, visiting fans in the Fan Zone, rallying on Medtronic Plaza, and being available for the photos and interactions fans love so much!  

Open auditions for both positions will be on the same day, so whether you are a dancer or ambassador candidate, everyone auditions on April 2, 2017.  Don’t know which direction you want to go yet? Read on for more information about each role and the tryout process.

Tryouts for the MVC Ambassadors may include: interviews, personal introductions on the mic, panel discussions, photoshoots, spokesmodel presentations, etc. Ambassadors will need to do some “hitting the crowd” and cheering, however, no dance/cheer experience is required – we will teach you how to do this during the audition. The time commitment for this Ambassador position will include all home games, practice one to two nights a week, appearances that vary – but are flexible in the scheduling – plus other team meetings/photoshoots, etc.

Tryouts for the MVC Dancers may include: learning and performing MVC choreography, technical dance skills, a dance solo, “hitting the crowd” and cheering, interviews, personal introductions and photoshoots. The time commitment for this Dancer position will include all home games, three weekly practices, appearances that vary – but are flexible in scheduling – plus other team meetings/photoshoots, etc.

Sponsor Spotlight: Simma Wear

UltimateCheerleaders.com is proud to announce a new sponsor, Simma Wear.

Introducing Simma Wear: A Brand New Audition Attire Line For Aspiring Pro Dancers!

Audition season is right around the corner and we are excited to announce the launch of a brand new audition line for major league sports, Simma Wear! (www.simmawear.com) (Social Media @Simmawear)

Simma Wear was founded in the San Francisco, Bay Area, produced and manufactured out of Oakland, California, and designed by former professional dancer Simmone Miller. Simmone has danced in music videos, commercials, companies, and was formerly signed to the DDO Talent Agency and The S Agency in Los Angeles, as well as danced in the NBA. Her time spent dancing for the Golden State Warriors influenced the creation of this line, bringing fun, young, and classy colors with Swarovski rhinestone pairings making dancers fully prepared for their NBA/NFL auditions.  

“I really wanted to do something different and something that feels high end. I put a lot of thought into every detail, and every color pairing. I wanted to be sure that I would wear every piece that I am producing. Quality definitely over quantity. We produced a limited amount of each design and color and will be slowly adding more in the years to come. Prior to the Warriors I auditioned for pro dance teams before and would get cut. I definitely heard a bunch of “no’s” before a “yes” and I think that final break through was due to my look. I used to think ‘why am I not making these teams?’ but getting polished put me over the edge. Being fully prepared with the right makeup, hair, earrings, tights and outfit truly made the difference. You’d be surprised what rhinestones can do on the perfect outfit with the right hair and makeup!” – Simmone

Along with audition tops and bottoms, Simma Wear is a one stop shop for all your audition needs including audition tops, bottoms, earrings, and tights and is guaranteed fast processing and delivery time (1-3 day processing + shipping)!  All their audition attire is pre-made allowing for faster delivery than the normal custom attire, however custom rhinestone choices are available at additional cost and time. The “Make It A Kit” option is excellent for first time auditioners, that need a pair of earrings and tights to go along with their audition wear. Already have a top that just needs rhinestones? Simma Wear can add rhinestones to your top as well. You can find more information on all their services and puchase Simma Wear online at www.simmawear.com or if located in the Bay Area, California you can schedule one of their upcoming appointments.

“More than anything, I want you to feel good. You should walk into your audition feeling your absolute best, not worrying about the next girl, but feeling confident in yourself. Yes your hair, makeup, dance, fitness is part of that, but if I can help in a small way by providing audition attire that I put my heart and soul in to make sure that every color and detail makes you stand out in a good way, I’m happy. Clothing aside, I believe in you. Be fearless. Get excited. Trust yourself. The universe is truly unlimited, and so are you. Your wishes wait to come to life. Good luck at your audition.” – Simmone

Snapshots: Ladies of Ontario Fury – 02/04/17

Another week, another Ontario Fury game.  This past Saturday, I watched the Ontario Fury battle the Turlock Express in another exciting MASL soccer game…exciting if you are a fan of the hometown team because this one was a blow out.  The MASL doesn’t have a 10 run mercy rule like they have in Little League Baseball, but maybe they should.  The Ontario Fury thoroughly dominated the boys from Stanislaus County, taking a 7-2 lead into halftime and never looked back.  Five third quarter goals put the Ontario Fury up 12-2 before the Express started playing some soccer, scoring three fourth quarter goals to keep the final margin of victory at 10.

Final Score: Ontario Fury – 15, Turlock Express – 5

Twenty goals in 60 minutes of game play.  That’s a goal every three minutes  And with each Fury goal…you get some dancing!  So let’s take a look at this week’s snapshots of the Ladies of Ontario Fury, the hottest dance team in the MASL.
