There are a couple of familiar faces here.
Anncell (in green) danced for the San Antonio Spurs, the Los Angeles Lakers, and (the soon-to-be defunct) Chivas USA. (Full disclosure: she’s a personal friend. Congrats on making finals – woo hoo!)
Jovann (in nude/beige) danced for the Oakland Raiders, San Francisco 49ers, Texas Legends, Texas Revolution, and San Francisco Demons (remember the XFL?). In fact, now that I think about it, she might be eligible for our “Decade of Dance” club.
No, it’s not the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
It’s Tabitha during the individual performances at the Dolphins Cheerleaders Finals on Saturday.
The squad was chosen a month ago, and by now I bet the ladies have all bonded like they’ve known each other forever. Here are a few of my favorite shots from finals. Click here to view the rest of the gallery!
Yay! Alex made the team! I’ve known Alex since she was on the Clippers Spirit dance team back in 2007. Werq!
Angela G is a rookie on the team this year. I was shocked to see her at Chargers, since just a few months prior, she’d been selected to the new LA KISS Girls dance team. Unfortunately, Angela had to drop off of the team when they changed their rehearsal schedule to weekday mornings. It’s great to see that she’ll be able to keep dancing.
This year’s Pro Bowl Cheerleader Anjelica is back for season #4!
I met Bridget (in yellow) and Brittney (above) at prelims and liked them both very much. I was super jazzed that they both made the team. Brittney is an alum of the (now defunct) Dallas Vigilantes dance team.
Delani is also a rookie Charger Girl this year.
Diana wasn’t chosen for the team, but her abs are SICK.
Denise, another rookie. Two words: Shoe In.
Rookies Devin and Whitney
Tinaiya (in black and white) and Lindsay (above) are back for their first year as veterans. With kicks like that, nobody is shocked they both made it back.
Natalie made it back for her 6th year on the team. Woot!
17 ladies have been selected to participate in training camp for this year’s team. Auditions for the male members of the team will take place next weekend.
I was holding off on posting this, hoping for some photos, but there still aren’t any, so here ’tis…~sasha

And our friends at The Line Up are offering a discount to those who get their orders in early. LOVE these little jackets, especially the mesh one. Perfect for layering over a little top, without making it too warm to wear for an all-day audition. Besides, layering is a fantastic way to make sure nobody else turns up in your exact same outfit. 😉
The judges narrowed the field down to 76, and they’ll choose the final team tomorrow. Help them out by voting for your top 5 candidates to make the team. Click here to vote now!

Last Saturday was the opening and semi-final rounds of the current year auditions to become “your” Miami Dolphin Cheerleader. Always a fun day in Dolphinland as hundreds of potential candidates invade Sun Life Stadium following their dream. Every year the MDC loses some very impressive talent to retirement etc, but I have to admit that the new candidates knocking on the doors are stunning. I did hear the word “wow” a few times during introductions.
The skillful candidates who made it through to Finals number 56, they will complete with 25 returning veterans for the approximate 44 member cheer squad. Sharpen your dancing shoes young ladies as the pyramid starts to narrow.
Finals are this Saturday, May 10 and are open to the public. If you’re in South Florida come out and see the showcase that these talented and beautiful young ladies present. Fan voting is available online: (voting link).

From Last Night – Rachael and Morgan backstage at Eagles Cheerleaders Finals
Final auditions for the 2014 Seattle Seahawks dance team took place last night, with a live web cast so fans, and friends and family of contestants could follow along. I’m always impressed by the way they are able to keep the live webcast moving, with live commentary and video clips to keep you interested between dances. It’s also a way to get to know the candidates and the Sea Gals in a way that makes you see that these are real people, not just pretty girls in photos. I wish more teams would follow the Sea Gals example!
This year’s squad of 32 includes 21 veterans and 11 rookies. Seahawks.com has tons of video and photos and the webcast from this year’s auditions, and they already have individual pages and galleries for this year’s team. Now that’s FAST!
A few interesting factoids:
Veterans Allie, Bianca, and Brittany are all returning to the team after a year off
Two rookies come to the Sea Gals with experience from other pro teams. Jalanda was a Tennessee Titans Cheerleader and Leisel was a Portland Trailblazers BlazerDancer.
Three other rookies have a Sea Gals family connection.
Gretchen’s sister Geraldine was a Sea Gal from 2011 thru 2014. Kylie and Taylor are both daughters of Sea Gals alumni. Kylie’s mom Dawn Gray and Taylor’s mom Heather Melvard were teammates in the 1980s.
Sidebar: One of the most important things I learned from the Sea Gal auditions is they have a Director of Cheerleader Social Media. OH. MYLANTA. This is a thing now? This is somebody’s actual job??? Here I am, slaving away at a boring cubicle job by day, and blogging by night. Meanwhile, I could be somebody’s manager of cheerleader social media. Getting paid to do my hobby?
Ahem, ladies and gentlemen, I am officially announcing my availability. Anyone needs a social media person for their team, call me. I’ll freelance. I’ll relocate. Whatever. I need to get in on this, ASAP. Call me!
(Good grief, that sounds desperate)
