Florida’s Representation At Pro Bowl In Phoenix

It was an pleasure this year to photograph the three Pro Bowl Cheerleaders from the Florida NFL teams. Melissa of the Dolphins, Sam from the Jaguars and Cassie representing the Buccaneers.

Melissa in her fourth year was a Line Captain for two years and was lucky enough to be invited on her second overseas tour with Armed Forces Entertainment.

Line Captain Sam of the Jaguars ROAR is in her third year. I covered two of her games this season.

The Buc’s Cassie cheered for her fourth year and was selected Line Captain for the second time.

Congratulations to the ladies, being picked for the NFL Pro Bowl is a very impressive accomplishment.

Note to David Tyau—at your Pro Bowl coverage this year please see if you get a photo of these three lovely ladies together. Thanks.

Wedding Bells

From The Miami Herald


Former Miami Dolphins Cheerleader and Miami PR maven Lynn Lewis went to Paris as just another American New Year tourist, and she’s coming home a soon-to-be-bride.

Lewis agreed to marry former state Sen. Dave Aronberg, a Democrat who’s now the state attorney in Palm Beach County.

Aronberg, 43, popped the question atop the Eiffel Tower.

While the lovebirds were not reachable for a chat, they posted photos of Lynn sporting a huge rock on Facebook.

The UF grad started Lynn Lewis Public Relations after her 2007 season with the Fins. She specializes in special events and has offices in Tampa, New York and London. Hollywood legend George Hamilton is a client.

Aronberg, meanwhile, is an ambitious pol with ties to both parties (he once worked for GOP Attorney General Pam Bondi) for whom state attorney could be a stepping stone for statewide office.

Dolphins Cheerleaders Return From Military Tour

Recently the Miami Dolphins continued their annual 14 year tradition of visiting and supporting our military personnel serving abroad. Retired Dolphin Lousaka Polite along with MDC members Brianne, Melissa, Kasey, Jessica, Chantal, Jodi, Alexis and Allison spent a 15-day trip visiting U.S. bases in Afghanistan, Kuwait and Djibouti, Africa. The tour, in concert with the Department of Defense’s Armed Forces Entertainment, stopped at six camps, our embassy in Kabul and included a great variety show, autograph signing, photo opportunities and many chats with our brave men and women serving overseas.

The Dolphins organization does a great job with these world wide tours as well as the NFL’s Salute to Service initiative. This marks the fourth tour for Brianne, the third for Kasey and the second for Melissa and Lousaka.

After returning from the tour, the group performed the same 45 minute showcase for a special family and friends audience at the beautiful cheerleader workout studio at Sun Life Stadium. The show opened with each cheerleader introducing themselves and offering their unique perspective/experience on the trip. The common theme was that although they were on tour to give, they also received just as much gratitude and thanks from the troops in return. Everyone’s a hero in this transaction.

Many props go out to these beautiful talented cheerleaders. The prep time commitment before getting on the plane was extensive–learning new choreography, detailed rehearsals, all to be ready to devote 24/7 for a 15-day tour. The performance included rapid fire dance routines in multiple outfits followed by interactive skits with the audience. Very entertaining–I can visualize the wide smiles the solders were left with.

Brianne stated that it was a honor to be invited on tour and she took great satisfaction in helping solder morale among the “true heroes of this country”. She cooed “hitching a ride on the C-17 transport plane was a special thrill”. All the ladies stated they would “gladly return” if the opportunity presents itself again. A great life educational experience.

Emily Snow, MDC Director, stated “through hard work and good people, we have been given the amazing opportunity to travel and boost morale with our U.S. military stationed aboard. It is a life changing trip for those selected to go. The simple things we deal with every day seem so minor in comparison to the jobs these men and women face. Our goal is to bring some smiling faces for a visit and make those few days of their deployment more enjoyable! We are very proud of our traveling crew and thankful to the Armed Forces Entertainment for selecting us to go!”

Jamie Quadrozzi, Manager of Cheerleader Media, was the behind the scenes coordinator on the trip. She tells me excitedly “being asked to travel overseas and visit troops is the honor of a lifetime and these ladies know it. Our forces are fighting for freedom, so to be asked to help them forget about all that for just a few hours and enjoy it with us is huge. There is fighting and danger everyday and the service members are selflessly doing their jobs, asking nothing of us than to not be forgotten or taken for granted.”

Speaking for the entire group Jamie states “visiting war-torn countries and the soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen will change you. Hearing their stories, seeing their everyday lives and learning about our mission there changes you. You are a different person after a trip like that.”

Lousaka Polite, who played 12 NFL seasons, was very excited to be the front man for the group and was also honored to contribute to a great tour, his second this year.

Note to the tour group–your friends at Ultimate Cheerleaders also offer gratitude for the generosity you give to our military personnel. I saw a lot of proud family members at the showcase. Thank you, all the accolades you receive are well deserved.

Dolphins Cheerleaders Enjoy Victory Over Chargers

The Chargers brought San Diego weather (75, low humidity) to Miami but they left their game back in California as the Dolphins put on a whipping 37-0. The South Florida heat may be subsiding but the MDC are performing hot as ever. It’s “must see” entertainment as the cheerleaders emerge from the end zone tunnel with their signature gait to a 50 yard line pre game introduction performance.

The 42 member squad is very impressive as they demonstrate their athletic and dancing skills with riveting performances at each quarter and halftime break. The MDC are one of the most accessible squads as they are always out two hours before game time, on multiple spots in the Dolphin Plaza zone, to mingle with the fan base.

Re our photo strategy, it would be nice to settle in one corner and let each cheer line rotate to us but since the MDC change outfits at the break we hustle around each half to capture all four line groups. The line captains are BrittanyM, Melissa, Kelly and Brianne. Their co-captains are Macy, Alison, Courtney and Megan respectively.

Enjoy the photos and tune in next week when we highlight the recently concluded military tour that eight MDC members made to the Middle East. It’s a good story.

Just before the technical difficulties started on our Blog I was in Miami covering the August 23rd preseason visit of the Cowboys to Sun Life Stadium. I just added the following photos to Flickr and flipped the album for 50 additional pictures.

The Dolphins media guide describes the MDC best: “One of the most visible entertainment groups in all of professional sports”. Fully agree—our thanks out to Cheerleader Director Emily Snow for granting Ultimate Cheerleaders access to cover this group of glamorous and talented ladies. Magnificent and Magnificó.

2014 Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders

The official Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders website has been updated with individual profiles and uniform photos for this year’s squad. Click here to learn more about the ladies on the team!

Cara Peoples Miller, a Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School graduate, earns spot on Falcons’ cheerleading squad

By Chris Gay
The Augusta Chronicle
July 23, 2014

As a teenager, Cara Peoples Miller always wanted to try cheerleading. With dance and competitive roller skating taking precedent, she never got a chance to try out.

Now, she is making the most of cheerleading on the highest level. A Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School graduate, Miller earned a spot this summer as an Atlanta Falcons cheerleader. Miller and Evans High School graduate Cayla Hale are two of the 12 newcomers to the 36-member Falcons squad this year.

Cara and Cayla

“We can learn together,” Miller said. “The rookies on the team can turn to each other.”

Miller, 32, grew up in Augusta and once attended Augusta Christian. There, she inquired about cheerleading, but her mother told she didn’t have the time.

“You can only do so much,” she said. “I get it.”

Miller, whose parents Craig and Charlene live in Augusta, started dancing at age 6 and continued to do so throughout her days at Davidson.

After graduating from Augusta State with a degree in health and physical education, she moved to Savannah, Ga., and started a Zumba class. While there, she reconnected through Facebook with her old Davidson classmate, Jeremy Miller, a chef who lived in Atlanta. A successful first date eventually led to their marriage.

In 2009, the Millers moved to San Francisco before returning at the end of the year to Atlanta. After having her first child, Miller decided to try out for the Falcons. Despite her dance experience, she didn’t make the team.

“I had no idea what I was doing,” she said. “I thought it was all about dance, but they were looking for a well-rounded person. They look for a wow factor.”

Miller, who has two daughters, Caroline, 4 and Claire, 15 months, earned a spot as a cheerleader with the Arena Football League’s Georgia Force in 2012. She gained experience dancing on the field, interacting with fans and networking with others.

Miller’s time with the Force prepared her for her Falcons tryout this year. With several hundred women competing, Miller advanced to the final round of 60. After interviews, dance camp, boot camp and a 2½-hour final performance, she was selected as one of 12 newcomers to join the 24 returning cheerleaders. Of the 36, Miller is the lone mother on the team.

“I’m sure it’s probably interesting. But they really get along with me,” she said. “They say, ‘You really don’t look like a mom.’ ”

As the Falcons football team starts gearing up for the season, the cheerleaders are working hard as well. The squad practices twice a week in preparation for the first home preseason game, Aug. 8, against the Miami Dolphins. When the team isn’t playing, the cheerleaders stay busy with appearances.

Miller, who stays active with early-morning workouts and taking care of her children, plans to enjoy her time this season. She knows she can’t be an Falcons cheerleader for long, but at least now she’s getting her opportunity.

“I’d like to do this for a few more years,” Miller said. “My husband would like to have a third child. I know there’s a time limit. I want to do it while I can.”
