AHS cheerleaders enjoy fun in the sun

Updated: December 8, 2017

More than 800 high school cheerleaders and dancers from across the country participated in the 3rd annual Varsity Spirit Spectacular at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla., from Nov. 29 to Dec. 3, 2017. The individuals invited to perform in the parade are part of a select group of 10th to 12th grade captains, co-captains and officers who attended a Varsity Spirit summer camp this summer hosted by UCA, UDA, NCA, NDA, and USA. These Ashdown cheerleaders performed in an exclusive pre-parade performance through Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park before hundreds of fans. Besides enjoying a sunny trip to Orlando, performers had the opportunity to meet cheerleaders and dancers from across the nation and enjoy a magical holiday season at Walt Disney World Resort parks.
