Local Dancers to Perform at the Orlando Thanksgiving Tour

Dutch Fork Middle School is proud to announce that two members of its dance team, “The Dazzlers,” Cleo Floyd-Johnstone, and Mackenzie Carlander, will represent Varsity Spirit, the global leader in cheerleading, dance team and band apparel, camps and competitions, and a division of Varsity Brands, the market leader in team sports, school spirit and achievement recognition, in the 2022 Orlando Thanksgiving Tour at The Walt Disney World® Resort on November 22-25, 2022.

Dancers who are invited to perform in the Orlando Thanksgiving Tour are part of a select group of All-Americans identified at Varsity Spirit summer camps across the country. All-Americans are based on either superior cheerleading or dance skills at camps operated by Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA), Universal Dance Association (UDA), National Cheerleaders Association (NCA), National Dance Alliance (NDA), United Spirit Association (USA) or Urban Cheerleading Experience (UCE). Dutch Fork Middle School attended Universal Dance Association (UDA) at Lander University on July 20-23rd 2022 where they were selected as an All-American. Only the top 12% of the cheerleaders and dancers from Varsity Spirit camps earn the chance to participate in a performance of this caliber.

“We are thrilled that these excellent athletes will have the chance to perform and experience our Special Events in Orlando, FL,” said Bill Seely, President of Varsity Spirit. “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.”

Cleo Floyd-Johnstone and Mackenzie Carlander will perform with the Varsity Spirit All-Americans in a one-of-a-kind performance at The Walt Disney World® Resort. Besides enjoying a sunny trip to Orlando, All-Americans will have the opportunity to meet cheerleaders and dancers from across the nation and enjoy a magical holiday season at The Walt Disney World® Resort parks.

When asked how she felt about being an All American, Cleo Floyd-Johnstone said, “I feel very honored to have been chosen as an All American with UDA, my Dazzler’s Dance Team, and community. I cannot wait to perform with dancers from around the country!” Mackenzie Carlander said, “I am most excited to have the opportunity to represent my school doing the thing I love most at my favorite place to visit……..dancing at Disney World!!”

The Varsity Spirit All-American program is celebrating more than 30 years of honoring camp standouts. For more information, visit orlando.varsity.com
