Chrissy, Beth, and Jessica

Dance is a big thing in the world today and we regularly see that in the movies, tv, and, at sporting events, performed by the Buffalo Bandettes and the Buffalo Jills. As a way to draw awareness to the dance culture throughout Western New York, and to support and encourage local dancers, local organizers put together an event bringing in local studios, schools, organizations, clubs, dance teams and more including the Buffalo Bandettes dance team and the Buffalo Jills cheerleaders!

Check out the photos and video at Phil’s blog.

The Bandettes at the Bandits-Stealth Game

From the Buffalo Pro Cheer Blog:

This week’s game was all about the children as the Bandits hosted several area high school lacrosse teams in the stands and the Jr Bandettes at halftime performing with the 2011 Buffalo Bandettes. With all the Jr Bandettes on hand, the Bandettes got some help in the form of former coach Erin J and former captain Meghan, who helped keep things running smoothly with the Jr’s.

The Latest from Buffalo

Our friend Phil reports:

The last few years, Citadel Radio has been a big sponsor of a fun event geared towards men called the Buffalo Men’s Show. Seneca Niagara Casino is the location where they bring in various vendors with lots of big boy toys like televisions, cars, and drinks. In addition, since guys love beautiful women, a lot of models are on hand each year as well. This year, one of those models was the Martin Archery Girl…who we all know as Laura of the Buffalo Jills.

Also, this event is a big one for the Jills with several members of the squad in attendance signing autographs, selling off their calendars, and posing for lots of pics. But this year’s event went a little further than previous years…joining the Jills at the show were several members of the Buffalo Bandettes dance team. Throughout the event, I did some catching up with the Jills, whom I haven’t seen in 2 months and some even longer, as well as get plenty of photos of both the Jills and the Bandettes.

Photos and Video from the show here.

Also from Phil:

2009 Jills Ambassador Heather is working with a new website called Pro Player Insiders dedicated to NFL players and their fans. Heather’s focus will be cheerleading and she’ll have articles up on a weekly basis on the subject as well as interviews with girls from around the league.
