The holiday angle from the Ice Angels; The Allen Americans dance team shares seasonal insights

The Allen Americans hockey team have an amazing dance team, the Ice Angels

This time of year, angels are really quite prominent. You might see some evidence of snow angels if there is just enough accumulation. Linus is quoting angels on “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” Angels are earning wings in It’s a Wonderful Life. And angels are in the songs all around us. Hark, you may hear the herald angels sing. There are angelic hosts proclaiming, and angels heard on high.

So who better to ask about the holidays than pro cheer’s own angels, the Ice Angels! The Ice Angels are the amazing dancing, skating, and cheering squad that supports the Allen Americans hockey team north of Dallas. The Americans play in the Central Hockey League, and are fortunate to have a major league quality dance team under the supervision of former Dallas Mavericks Dancer captain/choreographer Stephanie Di Biase-Wheat.

You can see the latest Ice Angels latest Christmas-y photos and performances from this past weekend, courtesy of their photographer extraordinaire James Higgins, at their Facebook page (at this link).

So, UltimateCheerleaders is very pleased to learn about the holidays from some real angels! Here are the Ice Angels!:
