So for the final portion of the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders, the hopefuls returned to the stage for a kickline and to be introduced to the crowd one last time.
A group shot on the club level…
I’m not exactly a wordsmith so let me just summarize my August 10 visit to photograph the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders in one word “WOW”. This squad is impressive, the main criteria for selection must be: “Total Package Required”. The NFL is designed for teams to experience peaks and valleys on the field but the MDC, like many of their counterparts, never seem to field an average group. The 2012 lineup consists of 44 professional women evenly divided between veterans and rookies.
The Dolphins web site is fan friendly and does a nice job in showcasing the cheerleaders. A bountiful collection of photos and videos are available. At pre game about a dozen of the cheerleaders were welcoming fans outside the Sun Life gates for photo opportunities and autograph signings.
During the game when the showers arrived (and they always do) I had to decide to either whimp out and protect my equipment or keep shooting the cheerleaders dancing in the rain. FRANKLY, SCARLETT, I DON”T GIVE A DAMN about the camera. NFL cheerleaders performing in the rain— a no-brainer.
Try and get out visiting with the cheerleaders in person, in the meantime enjoy the photos and watch for the “Call Me Maybe” gals swimsuit calendar release this week.

Miami Dolphins cheerleaders entertain fans at Tesco
Cheerleaders from American football side The Miami Dolphins signed autographs and performed for fans in Watford on Saturday (June 30).
Ashley, a full-time high school teacher in her second year as a cheerleader, said the visit was the first time she had been to Europe.
She said: “Today and yesterday we have been going to different Tesco stores and getting to know our fans in the UK. “I had no idea there were so many Miami Dolphins fans here.
“Being a teacher demands a lot of good time management and that is important because being a cheerleader is something that’s so fun that I make sure I have time for it.
“I miss my family while I am over here but I would love to come back and perform for the British fans.”
As well as performing at all Dolphins games, cheerleaders must all be high school graduates and be in either full-time employment or full-time education.
Auditions for the entire squad are held every April.
Lauren J, an exercise science student and second year cheerleader, added: “We have had a big crowd come down to see us perform. We arrived on Thursday and are absolutely loving it.”

Theatrics moves costume collection to Boynton warehouse
If it involves the need for an authentic costume, Theatrics is the place.
Recently relocated from Lake Worth to Boynton Beach at 3461 High Ridge Road, Theatrics is the brainchild of owner Angel Wrona, who after being in theater all her life, decided to open a costume shop.
The 3,100-square-foot warehouse rents costumes to local plays, movie sets and even the occasional party goer looking for the real deal.
“We are one of the only places in Palm Beach County that rents costumes still,” she said of the year-round store. “Whether people are going to an event or there is a production, we are it.”
Schools in the area have also come calling on Theatrics and its original costumes. Atlantic High School in Delray Beach and Wellington High School have used the costumes for plays and events.
“Our name is getting out there,” Wrona said. “The costumes all depend on the event. Nothing trendy like Party City.”
For example, Wrona said a group came in last week looking for real cowboys and Indians garb.
The rentals start at three days to one week for a flat fee. Intricate, velvet-laced attire can run up to $100 for the rental but for a regular costume like a toga, it costs only $40.
“That’s not just a piece of cloth either,” she said. “That’s trimmed layers and the works.”
The store’s website, theatricslakeworth.com, has a Wall of Fame with pics of former customers happily wearing the costumes, including bunny rabbits, police officers and cats.
“I was raised as a theatrical ballet dancer, then came to Florida,” she said. “I am a Miami Dolphins Cheerleader alumni and former dance captain.”
In her performing days, Wrona always liked to make her own costumes.
She had the help of her husband Steve Echols to open the shop.
“She likes to serve the community,” he said. “That’s why we were originally in Lake Worth next to the playhouse on Lake Avenue.”
Echols said over time the store moved away from selling to renting. He added that his store is not for the packaged costume but something much bigger and better.
Theatrics gets its costumes from theaters that are finished with performances and other shops that may have closed down.
“People get into this,” he said. “We had people come in that were going on a Titanic reenactment cruise. We outfitted period costumes for that trip.”
As of now, Theatrics is taking appointments only at 561-623-7026. In the summer, the store will be open five days a week, then seven days a week for September and October’s Halloween season.
