Snapshots: The 2016 Ladies of Ontario Fury

I consider the period after the holidays to be a time of relaxation and rejuvenation. And January and February are the months that I spend with the Ontario Fury. It’s a fun experience, more laid back and less stressful that other events because the Fury staff is so welcoming and the shooting environment is more chill. And the Ladies of Ontario Fury are really fun to shoot…its all good.

So here are some snapshots I took last Sunday as the Ontario Fury defeated the Soles de Sonora 7-4 to stay in the playoff race.

Why did you become a professional cheerleader?

Growing up I’ve always been passionate about dancing, and now that I am older I am able to not only do what I love, but receive all the perks and benefits that come with being a professional dancer.

What was your favorite experience as a professional cheerleader?

Performing in front of a big crowd is one of my favorite experience as a professional dancer, but being able to inspire and encourage future dancers would have to be my favorite experience of all.

What is your favorite dance style?

I am in between jazz and hip hop, as my favorite dance style, because I can easily put my own style by being sharp and clean.

What is your favorite dance move? What is your go to dance move?

My favorite dance move would be anything that has pirouettes in it, but my go to dance move would be anything that involves a booty pop!

What are the three words that describe you?

If I had to pick three words to describe myself would be active, daring, and awesome. In all, I am a very easy going person who lives in the moment.

What is your favorite music genre? Who is your favorite musical artist?

Any type of music I can dance to would be my favorite music genre, but I do prefer to listen to country and pop. As of right now, my favorite music artist is SAM HUNT… not just because of his looks, but his voice of course.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Definitely my guilty pleasure would be going to the movies, because I get to sit back with a bucket of popcorn and no interruptions.

What is the one thing you can’t live without?

I wouldn’t say one thing I can’t live without, but two. My two cats are something I cannot live without.

Facebook, Instagram or Twitter? Or some other app. What’s your favorite app?

Snapchat! I get curious to see what people are doing and it is an easy way to communicate to people through pictures or videos in the moment.

Who is the one person that inspires you the most?

The one person who inspires me would be my eldest sister, because I would not be so open-minded to everything that life has to offer me.

What advice would you tell someone who aspires to become a professional cheerleader?

My advice to future professional dancers would be to just get up and do it! Dancing is about constructive criticism and it is something dancers will just have to learn to accept to make their dreams happen.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?

In ten years, I see myself being a homeowner near the beach and working as a flight attendant.

Cheerleader Profile: Ladies of Ontario Fury Dancer Alex

This is Alex, a first year member of the Ladies of Ontario Fury. Let’s get to know a little more about her.

Fury16v164

Why did you become a professional cheerleader?

I auditioned for the Ladies of Ontario Fury for a variety of reasons. I have a huge passion for dance. I have been dancing since I was three and have loved it ever since. After my years of high school dance teams and college dance teams, I was looking for more. I wanted to become a professional dancer because it seemed like the next step in my dancing career. I’m always pushing myself to grow not only as a dancer, but as a person as well, and Fury has helped me do that.

What was your favorite experience as a professional cheerleader?

My favorite experience so far has been when I got the opportunity to give back to the community during the 8th Annual Colonies Holiday Miracle Event. This program gives back to families in need and helps spread some holiday cheer. I had the pleasure of taking a little boy shopping around just in time for Christmas. We went to three different stores and he got a lot of cool gifts for his mom and brothers; and of course we were able to cross off a couple of his Christmas list items as well! The whole day was such a rewarding and fun experience! I’m thankful for Ontario Fury for not only giving me three privilege to dance and perform; but also do work like this and with the Fury Foundation!

What is your favorite dance style?

My favorite dance style is fast jazz. I love being sassy and dancing to upbeat fast songs. I grew up in competitive dance, so I love anything that allows me to show off my technique!

What is your favorite dance move? What is your go to dance move?

My favorite dance moves are definitely turns! Fun fact: growing up I competed and often won best turner at competitions!

What are the three words that describe you?

Three words that describe me are sassy, optimistic, and energetic.

What is your favorite music genre? Who is your favorite musical artist?

My favorite music genre is electric dance music. My favorite artist is Yellow Claw.

What is the one thing you can’t live without?

One thing I can’t live without is my family and friends. I’m very fortunate to have the best support system around me and would go crazy without them!

Facebook, Instagram or Twitter? Or some other app. What’s your favorite app?

Instagram! I love editing pictures and sharing them with all of my friends.

Who is the one person that inspires you the most?

The one person who inspires me the most is my mom. She gives the best advice, the warmest hugs, and constantly pushes me to strive to be my best. She leads by example and always has her head held high, even in the toughest of situations. She has overcome so much, yet does everything she can, along with my dad to support and provide for my family.

What is your motto to live by?

My motto to live by is “Carpe Diem” which means “seize the moment”. I always try to remind myself to take full advantage of the opportunities that are given to me and to live everyday like it’s my last.

What advice would you tell someone who aspires to become a professional cheerleader?

Some advice that I would give is to first find confidence in yourself. It’s very hard to go out and in front of thousands of spectators when you aren’t confident. In addition to that I would take as many dance classes as possible. You can never take too many technique classes!

Where do you see yourself in ten years?

In ten years my only wish is to look back and have no regrets. I want to be happy with a degree, maybe my masters, and have a successful job and be a devoted and loving wife, and maybe even a mom!

Fury16v166

Why did you become a professional cheerleader?

Performing has always been a huge passion of mine ever since I started dancing when I was 3 years old. As I grew older I began competing on my dance studios team, then moved onto cheerleading through high school, and then continued onto the collegiate level for two years. When the opportunity to audition for a professional team came across my path there was no doubt in my mind that I had to jump on the opportunity. Being a professional cheerleader for the past two years has been one of my biggest accomplishments. Being able to perform on the field and to be able give back to my community has been more than a dream come true.

What was your favorite experience as a professional cheerleader?

My favorite experience, hands down, has to be the very first time I stepped onto that turf, looked out into the crowd, and took a deep breath in. I remembering being able to hear my heart beating so loudly I could hear it in my ears. Seeing all of the fans, including my family, and hearing the roar of the crowd and our music still to this day gives me chills. That moment is something I will forever cherish.

What is your favorite dance move? What is your go to dance move?

Just one!? That’s not fair, I have so many! For me, my favorite dance move is anything that I can do a hair flip, shimmy, and shake. My go to dance move, technically speaking is a left high kick, but I can also do a pretty mean hand jive! ;D Ha ha.

What are the three words that describe you?

Adventurous, supportive, and courageous.

What is something that most people don’t know about you?

Something most people don’t know about me is that I am a huge gym junkie. I go to the gym 5-6 times a week. If I don’t go, I legit get sad. Lifting, cardio, yoga, I love it all! Challenging and pushing myself is definitely a hobby of mine. Before I go to bed I plan my workouts and it makes me excited to wake up in the morning.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Donuts and those cheesy wedding videos on Vimeo. They definitely make me cry but that’s when the donuts come to the rescue! Haha.

What is the one thing you can’t live without?

My family and friends! They’re my support system! They let my dreams run wild yet they keep me grounded. Without them I’d be lost. Oh and coffee! Without that I’m a grumpy zombie.

Facebook, Instagram or Twitter? Or some other app. What’s your favorite app?

Instagram, Instagram, INSTAGRAM! I love taking pictures, sharing pictures, and seeing other peoples pictures! I’m definitely that annoying girl that constantly asks to take pictures!

Who is the one person that inspires you the most?

My Grandpa. He is by far the most kind hearted person I have ever met. He would do anything to see his loved ones healthy, happy, and successful. I truly admire that and hope to by like him one day. Quite literally, if it weren’t for him I wouldn’t be able to be doing the things I’m doing today. Everything I do, I do for him, and to make him proud.

What is your motto to live by?

“Those who don’t jump will never fly.” I’m a huge believer in taking the risk, even if it scares you, you never know unless you try. It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting. Sometimes you have to trust the unknown and take the chance.

What advice would you tell someone who aspires to become a professional cheerleader?

Never give up! It’s definitely a long and tricky road but it is 110% worth every bit of it. Set a goal, work hard every day, stay true to yourself, and just have fun! Pay no mind to the fear of failure, just keep doing your thing. Keep an open heart and a strong spirit. You’ve got to go out and fight for it. Nobody knows what you want except you, and nobody will be as sorry as you if you don’t get it. So don’t ever give up on your dreams.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?

Ten years? Oh man! I don’t even know what I want for dinner! Haha. In ten years I’ll hope to have my Bachelors and Masters in Communications. Maybe be working as an entertainment news anchor for E! News. I hope to be traveling the world or living in Dublin with my two future dogs. I hope to still be happy and healthy and I could never ask for more!

Cheerleader Profile: Ladies of Ontario Fury Dancer Sativa-Skye

Let’s meet Sative-Skye, a second year member of the Ladies of Ontario Fury.

Fury16v160

Why did you become a professional cheerleader?

I always knew that dancing and cheering would be more than just a hobby for me. Through my many many years of dancing, and eventually being a cheerleader on the high-school and collegiate level, I realized that being a professional cheerleader would be a dream come true. Being able to dance, entertain a crowd, and cheer on my favorite sports team makes my heart so full.

What was your favorite experience as a professional cheerleader?

Last year a few members of the Ladies Of Ontario Fury along with myself, were selected to live in Mumbai, India for two months to perform on and film a live television show. Having that experience with my teammates was such a life changing experience and I am forever grateful. I would have never imagined that an opportunity of that nature would ever come my way, and it was even more amazing because I was able to dance alongside my beautiful and talented friends.

What is your favorite dance style?

Up until the age of about 14 Ballet was my heart and soul. Now I would definitely have to say that a solid Hip-Hop routine and sassy Jazz combo really get me going!

What is your favorite dance move? What is your go to dance move?

That’s a tough question… you can never go wrong with some hip rolls and a hair toss. But I’d have to say that high kicks and a leg tilt are always my go-to.

What are the three words that describe you?

Dedicated, caring, and witty

What is something that most people don’t know about you?

I actually really love to read and write! Once I get wrapped up in a book there’s no stopping me until I finish. Journaling is also one of my outlets besides dance that I use to unwind after a long day, or just a way to get some feelings out.

What is your favorite music genre? Who is your favorite musical artist?

It’s too hard to choose just one favorite music genre! I love everything from Top 40 pop, to hip-hop and indie alternative. If I had to pick a few favorites: definitely Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, James Blake, The XX, G-Eazy, and Lorde.

What is the one thing you can’t live without?

The support from my mom and all of my wonderful friends and family. There is never a day that goes by where I don’t think about how incredibly lucky I am to have such great, loving people in my life.

Who is the one person that inspires you the most?

My momma. I can only imagine what being a young single mom must have been like for her, and she still managed to give me the world. She obtained a Master’s degree from USC while raising a kid and working full time, so if she can do that I feel like there is no reason I can’t continue to follow my dreams.

What is your motto to live by?

“Just keep swimming”. There are going to be tough days, and rough patches along the way. But that should never ever be a reason to give up. You gotta just keep swimming and eventually all of your hard work will pay off.

What advice would you tell someone who aspires to become a professional cheerleader?

It is going to take a lot of hard work and dedication. Not only by bettering yourself as an athlete and dancer, but by dedicating time and effort to your team! Never let the fear of competing with other talented girls keep you from showing up to an audition. If you have dreams of performing on a court, field, turf, or ice, you show up to that audition and stay confident in yourself and your abilities! You will hear a hundred “no’s” before that “yes” so just keep showing up to those auditions with a bright happy smile on your face. My best wishes go out to you.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?

I see myself very happy in ten years, as I am very happy now. Hopefully I’ll be traveling the world with my husband! Maybe recently have started a family? I will have completed college by then and will have put in my time as an NBA and NFL dancer 😉 I know that as long as I keep working hard to accomplish my goals, only the best is to come.

Fury16v002

Why did you become a professional cheerleader?

I’ve cheered and danced all my life so once it was time to make the transition from an adolescent all-star team, to the professional world, I was very excited and honored to be a part of such a great team in a very elite field!  Being a professional dancer is one of my greatest accomplishments and deepest passions!

What was your favorite experience as a professional cheerleader?

There’s no other adrenaline rush that can beat running onto the field with all of the fans cheering for you as you line up for the music to start, I love that of course!  But, I really enjoy our post game autograph sessions where I get to meet with our fans and connect on a personal level!

What is your favorite dance style?

I am the most trained and technically best at ballet, but I enjoy hip hop the most and it’s the most common in my industry!

What are the three words that describe you?

Passionate- I am consumed in doing the things I love with the utmost passion.
Dedicated- I am 100% committed and involved in everything I do to the end.
Playful- I am a girly girl and a tom boy all wrapped into one. I’m goofy and love adventure!

What is something that most people don’t know about you?

Most people don’t know that I was painfully shy growing up and I was bullied.  Only because of pageants was I able to overcome these obstacles, helping me develop into an outgoing, brave woman today who is proud to be your Miss California United States 2015-2016!

What is your guilty pleasure?

I LOVE frozen yogurt, you can call me a yogurt snob! 😉  I know the best spots and I have a rewards card at all of them.

I can’t live without WAZE!  With my very hectic lifestyle in LA, I rely on Waze to help me navigate my life on a timely schedule.

What is your motto to live by?

“She is clothed with dignity and strength, and laughs without fear of the future.”  Proverbs 31:25  I am a strong woman with integrity and have faith in God to take care of my life.

It takes a lot of hard work and dedication.  It may not happen your first try, but a passionate person never gives up for what they truly want.  Stay in dance class and become knowledgeable in the industry.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?

In ten years I see myself living in Malibu, married with 2-3 children.  I hope to have starred in a few major motion picture films and owning my own pageant system!

The 2015 Ladies of Ontario Fury Dance Team Auditions

The Ladies of Ontario Fury held their auditions for the 2015 dance team this past Saturday and I was very interested in the outcome. You see, the Ladies of Ontario Fury have become one of my most beloved squads to shoot and under the direction of Lynae de Leon, they always seem to have some girls that are “next level” cheerleaders. This past season, two girls made NBA squads (the Laker Girls and the Golden State Warriors) and another Fury dancer was a finalist for the Phoenix Suns.

So every year, I eagerly await auditions to see who are the returning veterans and who are the potential newcomers to this squad. And this year, there are several openings for newcomers as only nine veterans were trying out again. With nearly 50 girls trying out, the competition for one of the 16 spots would be the most competitive in the three year history of the team

Brittany also participated in the Miss California USA pageant earlier this year and placed as the 1st Runner Up. She has been a member of the Ladies of Ontario Fury dance team for the past two years and I have had the pleasure to photograph her on numerous occasions.
