Local Cheerleader to Perform in Thanksgiving Day Parade in Houston

fullsizerAshlee N. Reyna from Jo Nelson Middle School in Santa Rosa is one of more than 300 elementary, junior high and high school cheerleaders and dancers from across the U.S. who will perform in the 66th Houston Thanksgiving Day Parade in Houston, TX, one of the oldest Thanksgiving Day parades in the country.

The individuals invited to perform in the parade are cheerleading and dance All-Americans selected from Varsity Spirit’s summer camps throughout the country, including Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA), Universal Dance Association (UDA), National Cheerleaders Association (NCA), National Dance Alliance (NDA) and American Cheerleaders Association (ACA).

All-Americans were selected via tryout based on the superior cheerleading or dance skills they showed at camp. Only the top 10% of the cheerleaders and dancers who attended Varsity camps have earned the chance to march in a holiday parade of this caliber.

Katlyn will perform with the Varsity All-Americans in the annual Thanksgiving Day festivities through the heart of downtown Houston. As the largest holiday parade in Texas, the Houston Thanksgiving Day Parade attracts crowds of more than 200,000. The event is televised in the Houston area, and syndicated throughout the U.S.

All-Americans will have the opportunity to cheer along side floats, hot air balloons, marching bands and celebrity guests as they make their way through the streets of downtown.
