Junior varsity cheerleaders Kayleigh Jay, Mary Ruth Dortch, Ana Chesley Robinson and Tava Johnson will represent Varsity Spirit in the 2020 Thanksgiving Tour at the resort.

Individuals invited to perform are part of the All-American program at Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA) and National Cheerleaders Association (NCA) summer camps across the country. All-Americans (Williams) are chosen based on superior athletic and leadership skills. Only the top 12 percent of athletes who attend camp earn the chance to perform in the holiday spectacular.

Cheerleaders and dancers from across the country invited to perform are part of a select group chosen as All-Americans during Varsity Spirit summer camps across the country.

All-Americans are chosen via tryout based on either superior cheerleading or dance skills at camps operated by UCA, UDA, NCA, NDA or Urban Cheerleading Experience (UCE).

Jay, Dortch, Robinson and Johnson will perform with Varsity Spirit All-Americans in a performance at the resort on Thanksgiving Day, tomorrow, Nov. 26.

While all cheerleaders are in Orlando, they get to enjoy the holiday season visiting the various parks.
