2017 P-R-O Convention All Star: Charlotte Foxes Cheerleader McKayla

Our next 2017 P-R-O Convention All Star honoree comes from Major League Lacrosse, specifically the Charlotte Foxes. The Foxes are the official dance team of the Charlotte Hounds, which were founded in 2011. I believe this is the first time that they were here at P-R-O and I was fortunate enough to snag one of them for this feature. So without further ado, introducing Charlotte Fox McKayla, a 2017 P-R-O Convention All Star.

Nurse Dances Her Way To The Broncos Sidelines

By Kathy Walsh
CBS Denver
May 11, 2016

DENVER (CBS4) – This football season there will be a nurse on the sidelines at Denver Broncos home games. She won’t be practicing her profession, but rather, her passion.

It took three attempts for the young woman to realize her dream. Now, she’ll be dancing for joy with the Broncos cheerleaders.

Gabby Windey
Gabby Windey is a registered nurse. She focuses on the sickest patients, those in intensive care at the University of Colorado Hospital.

“It takes it to a kind of level in compassion and empathy and skill that I connect with,” Windey told CBS4 Health Specialist Kathy Walsh.

Windey has worked in ICU for three years. It can be stressful, but she has her own way of coping.

“With dance. It’s huge. That really helps get my mind off of everything,” Windey said.

Nursing is her profession, but dancing is Windey’s passion.

“When I’m dancing, nothing else matters,” she said.

She started dancing at age 12 and hasn’t stopped. Windey danced through high school and college. Last year, she was on the dance squad for the Denver Outlaws lacrosse team.

This year, she’s had a dream come true. On her third try, she made the Denver Broncos cheerleaders.

“They hold their girls to a really high standard and they also give back in the community, which is huge,” Windey said.

A patient’s bedside and a pro football sideline are very different worlds. But for Windey, they work.

She said she’ll be nervous when she performs at her first Broncos game as a cheerleader. At the hospital, Windey leans on her coworkers for support. She says she’ll do the same at Broncos games with two dozen dancers by her side.

My last visit to see the New York Lizards Dancers was shortened due to inclement weather, so I made the trip back up the NJ Turnpike to see the squad at the Lizards home playoff game.
