Prior to the auditions, Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders Adrianna, Estefania and Monica had some free time to explore Teotihuacan Piramides and Xochimilco.

PLYMOUTH — Boom goes the dynamite!
The cheerleaders at this year’s 2009 Charles Bowser NFL Youth Football/Cheerleading Camp certainly were explosive. Working in unison, the young cheerleaders put together a wonderful halftime routine during a flag football game that capped this weekend’s camp.
Miami Dolphins cheerleaders were on hand this weekend to interact with the girls.
Kim Leary, the camp’s cheerleading coach, was thrilled about the outcome.
“This has been a great experience,” Leary said. “The (Dolphins) cheerleaders have brought some excitement. They have taught them character-building, a healthy way to eat, the lifestyle of being a cheerleader, being smart and getting good grades, having fun and being disciplined.”
Amy M. and Kellie C., a pair of Miami Dolphins cheerleaders, were on hand to lend their support.
“This has been amazing,” said Kellie, a rookie on the Miami cheerleading squad. “The kids are so great. They’re eager to learn.
“They’re just full of life. We’re excited to be here and they’re excited to have us. It’s heart-warming to see them be excited to see us.”
Amy, a second-year cheerleader with the Dolphins, was glad she had the chance to mingle with and teach the campers.
“This means a lot for us to come out here,” Amy said. “Just to meet all these kids and to see how they’re doing in life is great.”
The campers were happy they had a chance to spend some time around professional cheerleaders.
“It’s nice because we don’t get opportunities like this all the time,” said Alexis Owens, 14. “It’s a good experience.”
Tiffany Palin, 13, enjoyed learning new routines from the Dolphins cheerleaders.
“It’s been good having them here,” Palin said. “They taught us some things we didn’t know.”
The campers returned the favor to the Dolphins cheerleaders.
“They taught us three dances and we’re hoping that we can bring them back to Miami and teach them to our girls,” Kellie said. “Learning the dances was the highlight, definitely.”
Campers were from Creswell High School, Creswell Elementary, Pines Elementary and Washington County Union. Participants ranged from first grade to tenth grade.
“It’s an exciting time to have all the schools come together and have a wonderful time,” said Leary, who thanked coaches Shirley Henson and LaTasha McNair for their help. “It’s all about learning to work together, and learning how to make friends.
“We’ve had a great time. I’m glad the girls had a chance to have this opportunity.”
There were certainly plenty of reasons to cheer.
Last week, myself and some of the other cheerleaders were invited to take part in some promotional video clips.
On the first day, Jennifer, Pamela, Ashton and I took a variety of different clips where we danced, kicked, jumped and did lots of hair flips! The video camera was filming in slow motion so it was very interesting to see our every motion in detail. We also were able to do some solo video clips. For example, I was jumping on a mini trampoline while some of the other girls were dancing in the background. It came out fabulous!
On the second day of shooting, we had a group of 12 cheerleaders filming clips together. In groups, we danced and did some fun shots with Dolphins fans! Playing off our new stadium name, Land Shark Stadium, the Dolphins fans and the cheerleaders practiced our “FINS UP” that we’ll be performing at the games. When we had extra time, the film crew set up a special Plexiglas stage with lights underneath, strobe lights and fog machines. It was a very artistic and creative look that will really give our fans something new to see!
Overall we all had a great time filming both days and we can’t wait to see the final outcome!
