2016 P-R-O Convention All Star: Houston Texans Cheerleader Mallory

I mentioned previously that the Houston Texans Cheerleaders brought a huge contingent to P-R-O and there were many wonderful girls in attendance. Another one of those HTC that caught my eye was a newcomer to the squad, a rookie with a fresh face and amazing hair flips…and if you want to be a professional cheerleader, flipping your hair with grace and beauty is a MUST! And I liked the fact that even as a rookie, she had the moxie to stand up front with the other more experienced cheerleaders at P-R-O. No wallflower here!

So without further ado, introducing Houston Texans Cheerleader Mallory, our newest 2016 P-R-O Convention All Star!

You will note that Mallory is wearing two tops, the Texans workout attire for the day. It was a nice look but that the top “top” was riding up on most of the poses and it was beginning to be problematic. So she ditch the top “top” and we got down to business again.

2016 P-R-O Convention All Star: Los Angeles Rams Cheerleader Shelbie

NFL football  came back to Los Angeles in a big way this past year with the return of the Rams.  And at their final auditions, former professional cheerleaders from other renown teams tried out so much so that I commented that it was like creating a rock and roll super group in that you could have your pick of the finest dancers from southern California and the nation.  There were girls from the Clippers Spirit, Laker Girls, Charger Girls, Denver Broncos Cheerleaders, Baltimore Ravens Cheerleaders, 49ers Gold Rush, Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders, Utah Jazz Dancers, Charlotte Lady Cats, Ladies of Ontario Fury, Chiva Girls, and more.  It was simply amazing.

Our latest 2016 P-R-O Convention All Star is one of these cheerleader super stars.  She is a former Laker Girl and current member of the Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders…introducing Shelbie, a P-R-O Convention All Star.

2016 P-R-O Convention All Star: Houston Texans Cheerleader Megan

Our next 2016 P-R-O Convention All Star hails from the Houston Texans Cheerleaders. They brought their usual large contingent of cheerleaders to P-R-O and I made it a point to feature as many of them as I could. And one of them that caught my attention was a perky blonde named Megan. She was amenable to posing for a few photos and, in fact, she was my first cheerleader that I asked to pose at this year’s convention. So without further ado, presenting our newest 2016 P-R-O Convention All Star…Megan.

2016 P-R-O Convention All Star: Washington Redskins Cheerleader Masako

One of my favorite squads to photograph at P-R-O is the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders. They have some of the most beautiful girls in the NFL and they wear the most glamorous and sexy uniforms in all of professional cheerleading. Our next 2016 P-R-O Convention All Star is from Kobe, Japan and a four year veteran of the First Ladies of Football, introducing Masako.

2016 P-R-O Convention All Star: Seattle Sea Gals Cheerleader Christian

2016 marked the return of the Seattle Sea Gals to the P-R-O Convention after a one year absence and every time I see them, I make a point of photographing these girls.  The Sea Gals have a unique look and they provide a nice compliment to the many eastern dance teams that attend this convention.  So let’s take a closer look as we feature Sea Gal Christian, our next 2016 P-R-O Convention All Star.

Legends of the Fall: The 2016 P-R-O Convention – Part One

Autumn is my favorite time of the year.  The hot temperatures of summer give way to the cool, crisp air of fall.  My favorite non-Christmas holiday, Halloween, occurs during this time.  Fall also marks the return of football and basketball and, correspondingly, the return of NFL and NBA cheerleaders, those lovely ladies who provide a bit of beauty and glamour at these mostly masculine  sporting events.

And if fall is “showtime” for these beautiful and talented performers, it is summertime that dance routines are learned, teams bond and performances are refined. Individuals mesh together for a common purpose to form those perfectly synchronized, beautifully presented professional dance teams that we have come to love.  They will entertain us, captivate us, and mesmerize us.  And they will become Legends of the Fall.

The P-R-O Convention is the premier professional cheerleading convention and over 250 dancers from all over the country gathered in Atlanta, Georgia for two days of intensive dance training and team building.  This year, we celebrate the 13th year anniversary of the P-R-O Convention.

2016 P-R-O Convention All Star: San Antonio Spurs Silver Dancer Erika

One of the best things about covering this event is that I get to meet a lot of new dance talent and one of the new girls that left a lasting impression was a San Antonio Spurs Silver Dancer named Erika. She’s a great dancer to be sure, but when I got her in front of the camera, she really sizzled. She was one of the most photogenic cheerleaders at P-R-O and she is our next 2016 P-R-O Convention All Star.

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

Our next 2016 P-R-O Convention All Star is a cheerleader that I first met a few years ago while covering the Arizona Cardinals Cheerleaders auditions and she was one of a group of former Utah Jazz dancers who made their way to Phoenix to try out for the Cardinals. As it would happen, all of them would make the team and one of them stood out for her girl next door looks and amazing dance talent. Her name is Alexandria and she is our next 2016 P-R-O Convention All Star.
