Could you imagine cheering on an NFL football field, performing in front of a stadium full of thousands of on-lookers?! This is an every-week occurance for many of our pro cheerleader friends, but many young girls get the same opportunity once a year, through Junior Cheerleading programs. Talk about a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Many NFL Cheerleading teams offer Junior Cheerleader programs; where young girls, usually age 4-15, can learn dance fundamentals directly from the pros! It's a fun and non-competitive program that fosters commitment and self-esteem, and improves talent. The girls typically participate in a series of clinics, ending in an on-field performance with their mentoring Cheerleaders.
And did we mention they get their own professional uniforms, usually styled after their Big Sister's outfits? Check out the fabulous looks some of the Junior Cheerleaders have been sporting this season!
Every year, we're so excited to take the short trip to Atlanta, GA to attend the All Pro 3 P-R-O convention! This get-together is one of the biggest conventions for pro, semi-pro and college cheerleaders and dancers from around the country. The P-R-O convention consisted of well-known NFL and NBA coaches and choreographers who taught new, fresh routines to the teams who attended. We loved seeing what the choreographers brought this year and enjoyed watching the amazing teams pick up the complicated choreography so quickly! Touching base with our customers and coaches always makes visiting memorable. We were so happy to see all of our talented friends again and can't wait to revisit HOTLANTA next year!
Take a look at some of our favorite customers who attened the event!
Last month, one of our Account Managers, Karen, took two weeks off to travel to beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii. This was no ordinary beach vacation though - Karen traveled to this exotic local to represent the Minnesota Vikings as their 2016 Pro-Bowl Cheerleader! What an honor! Did you know that The Line Up is proud to call THREE current and former employees Pro-Bowl Alumni? Our Marketing Coordinator Pam and former Account Manager Laura were also chosen to represent the Vikings.
We have not one but TWO of our amazing customers cheering in the Superbowl this Sunday. We don't like to pick favorites, so we aren't going to! Good luck to BOTH of our amazing customers, the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders and the Carolina Panthers TopCats as they cheer on their teams. We couldn't be more excited for you and can't wait to see you shine on the sidelines!
Here's some fabulous shots of our gals on the sideline rockin' their TLU uniforms!
We can't believe that it's already that time of year: NBA season is officially here. We love the beginning of the season because that's when many of our teams reveal their new uniforms.

Their newest uniform was debuted during their photo shoot while Megan and Deb were busy measuring and sizing everyone.
