Richmond RoughRiders Dance Team Prep Class and Auditions

richmond

Richmond, Virginia has always been a bit small for a major league team, but the Richmond Raiders were blessed with a top tier major league quality dance team, coached by former Washington Wizards Dancer (2000-2003, Captain) and Washington Redskins Cheerleader (2005-2012, Captain) Kelly Allen. Well, in the topsy turvy wacky world of indoor football this spring, the Raiders are no more, but Richmond has a new indoor football team in town, and Kelly is now the Director of the RoughRiders Dance Team. Great news! Information about the prep classes (December 15th) and auditions (January 7th) are included in the graphic above, and we were thrilled to feature Kelly, singing her praises, at this link, previously at UltimateCheerleaders.

2016 P-R-O Convention All Star: Washington Wizard Girl Lizz

I think it is fair to say that a dance team or cheerleading squad takes on the personality of it’s director. In the case of the Washington Wizard Girls, who are led by Derric Whitfield, they are hip, urban and a little bit edgy. And our next 2016 P-R-O Convention All Star is the embodiment of this Wizard Girl sentiment…introducing Wizard Girl Lizz.
