Boston Cannons Dance Team

Another hot and humid Saturday, this time at Harvard Stadium where the marvelous ladies of the Boston Cannons Dance Team cheered their team on to victory over the visiting Toronto Nationals.

This is Karen’s fifth season with the Cannons (she started when the team still played at Boston University) and third as Director. She graduated from Providence College with a degree in Marketing. Karen works as an event planner putting IT professionals, experts and vendors together. You may also recognize her from the Boston Blazers Sparks Dance Team (indoor lacrosse), where she served as Captain last season.

Jennifer has a Masters from the Harvard School of Public Health and works as a Clinical Research Finance Manager. She’s also the Director of the Sparks Dance Team. Yes, there are quite a few dancers on both squads.

Ashley is a three-year veteran, and this is her second-year as a line captain. If you watch the Cannons Dance Team you’ll see the Captains jump forward and initiate all the sideline routines, but their responsible for a whole lot more.


Lauren is a Fitness and Health teacher and the  other Line Captain. Like Ashley, this  is her third year on the team and second as captain. Captains fill in for Karen, if she has to travel for her job. They also choreograph some of the routines.

Keep up with the Cannon’s Captains on their blog.

Second-year veteran Brittany graduated from Suffolk University earlier this year. She majored in Accounting and Marketing.
