Grace Plaisted and Sydney Brown from Hampden Academy in Hampden were two of more than 800 high school cheerleaders and dancers from across the country that represented the camp brands of Varsity Spirit in the third annual Varsity Spirit Spectacular Nov. 27-Dec. 3, at the Walt Disney World® Resort in Orlando, Florida.
The individuals invited to perform in the parade were 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 Universal Cheerleaders Association, Universal Dance Association, National Cheerleaders Association, National Dance Alliance and United Spirit Association.
The Hampden students 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 that nation and enjoy a magical holiday season at Walt Disney World® Resort parks with their families.
This was Grace’s third year performing at Disney and states, “Each year it was as magical as the first. I am so glad I had Sydney to enjoy this with and am thrilled to have had a picture in front of the Castle in my graduation gown.”
Sydney said, “It was truly a magical experience.”
