Paradise Honors Middle and High School recently announced that five members of its cheer teams - high school students Bella Oliveira and Delila Wallace, and middle school students Kylee Jensen, Kayla Mitchell, and Payton Dewett - will take part in the 2022 Orlando Thanksgiving Tour at the Walt Disney World Resort on Nov. 22 to 25.
These students will represent Varsity Spirit, a global leader in cheerleading, dance team and band apparel, camps and competitions, and a division of Varsity Brands, a market leader in team sports, school spirit and achievement recognition.
Cheerleaders and dancers who are invited to perform in the Orlando Thanksgiving Tour are part of a select group of All-Americans identified at Varsity Spirit summer camps across the country.
All-Americans are based on either superior cheerleading or dance skills at camps operated by Universal Cheerleaders Association, Universal Dance Association, National Cheerleaders Association, National Dance Alliance, United Spirit Association or Urban Cheerleading Experience.
Paradise Honors cheerleaders attended USA Camps over the summer where they were selected as an All-American. Only the top 12% of the cheerleaders and dancers from Varsity Spirit camps earn the chance to participate in a performance of this caliber.
"We are thrilled that these excellent athletes will have the chance to perform and experience our Special Events in Orlando," said Bill Seely, President of Varsity Spirit. "We are honored to provide them a one-of-a-kind opportunity, where they will meet and connect with cheerleaders, dancers from across the country, and create memorable experiences at The Walt Disney World Resort parks."
Bella, Delila, Kylee, Kayla and Payton will perform with the Varsity Spirit All-Americans. Besides enjoying a 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 the Disney resort parks.
