STA CHEERLEADERS AMONG ELITE CHOSEN TO PERFORM IN 88TH ANNUAL 2014 MACY’S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE
The 2014 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City will feature a performance by more than 700 cheerleading and dance team members representing Varsity Spirit. Four cheerleaders from St. Thomas Aquinas in Hammond, La. were among those invited to attend. They are seniors Angelle Baiamonte, Jessica Camelo, Carlye Galloway, and Taylor Ridgedell.
This will be the 21st year that Varsity Spirit has teamed up with Spirit of America Productions to give this opportunity to the cheerleaders and dance team members who qualified at camps across the country. Spirit of America hosts two featured performances in the parade. Cheerleaders and dancers from across the country are invited to perform a nationally televised, showcased performance LIVE on NBC each Thanksgiving in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, one of the most celebrated parades in the world.
Outstanding cheerleaders and dancers from Universal Cheerleaders Association, Universal Dance Association, National Cheerleaders Association, National Dance Alliance and United Spirit Association include team captains and standout performers who attended summer camp. All camp companies are member organizations of Varsity, the largest cheerleading and dance team organization in the world.
The group will spend the week before Thanksgiving in New York City sightseeing and rehearsing for their performance on Thanksgiving Day. This year’s cheerleaders and dancers will show their spirit along the streets of Manhattan from Central Park West and 78th Street down to 34th and Seventh Avenue. The parade culminates in Herald Square with a televised performance of the spirited routine they have spent the week rehearsing.
