ADDISON - Laina Clower and Kaylie Blake, of Addison High School, are two of more than 500 elementary, junior high and high School cheerleaders and dancers from across the country that will represent Varsity Spirit in the 2019 Thanksgiving Tour at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
The junior varsity cheerleaders, who have been invited to perform in the parade, are part of a select group of cheerleaders and dancers chosen as All-Americans during Varsity Spirit summer camp across the country.
All-Americans are selected via tryouts based on either superior cheerleading or dance skills at camps operated by University Cheerleaders Association, Universal Dance Association, National Cheerleaders Assoication or National Dance Alliance.
Only the top 10 percent of the cheerleaders and dancers from Varsity Spirit camps earn the chance to march in a holiday parade of this caliber.
Addison High School had five cheerleaders selected as All-Americans: Clower, Blake, Baylie Womack and Kaylianna Sorknes from the junior varsity and Savannah Lynn on varsity.
Clower and Blake will perform with the varsity spirit All-Americans in a one-of-a-kind pre-parade performance through Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park on Thanksgiving Day. Besides enjoying a sunny trip to Orlando, All-Americans will have the opportunity to meet cheerleaders and dancers from across the nation and enjoy a magical holiday season at Walt Disney World Resort parks.
The Varsity All-American program is celebrating more than 30 years of choosing camp standouts.
