Cavalier Girls at the Cavs Fan-fest

For the fans at every home and away playoffs game, the Cleveland Cavaliers stage a fan-fest on the Gateway Plaza downtown between the city’s NBA and MLB facilities. What can be found is a construct of temporary basketball court, team entertainment stage, food trucks, sponsor tents, and jumbotrons. Whether they are en route to the stadium or want to be part of the action, thousands of NBA fans passed through to shoot a few hoops, get face-painted, grab a snack, buy some concessions or souvenirs, take a few cell-phone pictures, and watch some entertainment. Two hours before tipoff, these Cleveland Cavaliers entertainment troupes Cavaliers Girls, Cavaliers Scream Team, Q-Stix, and Spirit Squad took over the stage to put on a performance.

First, the Cavaliers Girls performed.

And what a treat, the entire ensemble of all 17 members danced in tight formation on a small stage.

Tampa Bay’s Allison Donato, Lightning Girl Captain

Belated congratulations out to the Chicago Blackhawk players and Ice Girls for their 3rd Stanley Cup victory in the last six years. Dynasty accomplishment. My hometown Lightning had a great season and I feel they announced to the NHL they will be a tough out over the next few years.

A secondary reward of following Tampa Bay in the 26 postseason games is that the Lightning Girls became more visible than ever because of all the away watch parties. What started with only 500 fans grew to 18,000 by game 6 of the Cup Finals. Compared to the other majors the NHL has a smaller, but more raucous, fan base. That base grew exponentially in Tampa this year. Success breeds more success, amazing journey, great memories.

After the final game I cornered third year Lightning Girl Captain, Allison, and asked for her reflections on this miracle run season:

Allison, can you run me through the last 12 months?
Allison: “In 2014 when we got swept by the Canadians I was so disappointed, but I knew that the Bolts would get revenge. It is still surreal to me that we made it to the Stanley Cup Finals. It was such an honor to be Captain of the 2014-2015 Lightning Girls team. When I first made the team 3 years ago, I never would have thought that I would get to experience this great season. It is truly a dream come true and something that I will remember for the rest of my life.”

Is being a Lightning Girl more than cheering on game days?
Allison: “Being a Tampa Bay Lightning Girl is so much more than just dancing at the games with pom-poms. One of my favorite parts about being a Lightning Girl is the one-on-one interaction we have with our fans. We are constantly out in the community representing the Lightning Organization and interacting with people. It’s so much fun to be able to meet and form a relationship with so many incredible individuals throughout the season. Meeting with the young kids is my favorite. It’s really an amazing feeling to know that you are a role model to someone.”

Tell the UC readers about the watch parties.

Allison: “Our Watch Parties during playoffs were insane!!! It really encouraged the community to come together and support our Bolts. We had THOUSANDS of fans come out to our watch parties. It allowed our fan base to grow, which is great!”

Will we get to see you for another season?

Allison: “Sadly, this was my last season as a Lightning Girl. The Lightning Organization has been such a huge part of my life for 3 years and I am heartbroken that this is the end. However, I have some very exciting things happening in my life. In a few months I will be moving to London for 10 months to study abroad at Middlesex University. Studying abroad has always been a dream of mine so I am very excited to start this new chapter of my life.”

I always saw your family at the games!

Allison: “Throughout my 3 years as a Lightning Girl, my family has always been so supportive. They were at every single game supporting the Bolts and watching me. My 6 year old niece, Kenna, would come as well and dance with us. She had her own pair of matching pom-poms and a Lightning cheerleader outfit. I am so thankful that I was able to share this experience with my family and my niece.”

Congratulations from UC to the Lightning Girls and the entire Lightning organization for a great season. I added some 60 photos to our Lightning Girls playoffs album–enjoy.

2015-16 Orlando Magic Dancers Announced

By Josh Cohen
OrlandoMagic.com

Regardless of the outcome, each of the 28 finalists vying for 20 spots on the 2015-16 Orlando Magic dance team got all they could ask for during auditions.

om

Thanks to the Baha Mar Casino and Hotel, they got a free trip to the Bahamas.

They all got a chance to meet several revered figures in the Bahamas and learn about the history and culture of this picturesque island.

And thanks to the outstanding work from photographer Michael Cairns, hair stylists from Stella Luca Salon and makeup artists from MAC Cosmetics, each finalist posed for professional swimwear portraits along the beach outside Baha Mar.

It doesn’t end there.

The finalists performed on stage at the Baha Mar Convention Arts & Entertainment Center in front of a jam-packed, in-person audience and for thousands watching live on OrlandoMagic.com.

And most importantly, they all got a chance to bond with one another and share laughs that will last a lifetime.

While it was a difficult proposition for the judges, only 20 could be selected for the squad. And while disappointing for those that didn’t hear their names called at the end, this experience was undeniably worth the attempt.

For 15 dancers, a dream will be relived. Alex, Bethany, Brittany, Cassie, Elyse, Gizelle, Jamie, Kori, Krystle, Lauren, Lily, Nicole F., Rachel, Victoria Q. and Victoria R. will rejoin the team and add to their growing collection of amazing experiences as a Magic Dancer.

“Hearing my name called was definitely a relief and the best feeling,” said Gizelle, a now four-year Magic Dancer veteran. “I’m looking forward to being on the court again with the girls and getting to perform and doing what I love best in the community.”

“It’s a dream come true to be on the team for a fourth season,” Elyse said. “Everyone here (Baha Mar) has been so kind to us. Everything was perfect. It’s been amazing.”

For the remaining five dancers, this is all just the beginning of a dream come true. Cierra, Kiki, Nicole H., Molleigh and Sarah will now have the opportunity to experience all the wonderful things that come with being a part of the Magic organization. That includes entertaining fans at Amway Center during Magic games, spending invaluable time in the community and growing friendships with their new teammates.

“Words can’t explain it,” an emotional Cierra said. “We have already formed a great bond over the last two weeks together and I’m looking forward to continuing that with the girls. It was an incredible experience here in the Bahamas.”
