Two members of the PHS cheerleading team recently enjoyed the thrill of performing at Disney World in Florida.
Gabi Cissna, a junior, and Elina Reed, a sophomore, participated in the Varsity Spirit Spectacular, Nov. 17-21, at the Walt Disney World® Resort
Cheerleaders and dancers who were invited to perform in the event are part of a select group of high school varsity captains, co-captains and officers identified at Varsity Spirit summer camps across the country hosted by Universal Cheerleaders Association, Universal Dance Association, National Cheerleaders Association, National Dance Alliance, United Spirit Association or Urban Cheerleading Experience.
Palmyra High School cheerleaders attended UCA Camp at Palmyra High School June 1-3, where they were selected for this experience.
“We are thrilled that these excellent athletes will have the chance to perform and experience our special events in Orlando, Fla.,” said Bill Seely, president of Varsity Spirit, an industry leader in cheerleading, dance team and band apparel.
“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.”
Reed and Cissna performed with fellow varsity captains, co-captains and officers in a one-of-a-kind performance at the event.
Besides enjoying a sunny trip to Orlando, athletes met cheerleaders and dancers from across the nation and enjoyed a magical holiday season at resort parks.
“Disney truly was an unforgettable experience,” Reed said. “It was amazing to see so many girls from all across the country come together for one purpose: our love of cheerleading.”
In addition to all the fun, it was also educational.
“Overall, the experience was great, and so worth it,” Cissna said. “I learned so much, and I am glad to say that I did it!”
Varsity Spirit is celebrating more than 30 years of honoring camp standouts.
