Seminole Ridge High School student Nicole Hopkins is one of more than 500 high school cheerleaders and dancers from across the United States who will be performing in the world-famous London New Year’s Day Parade.
The individuals invited to perform in the parade qualified for the trip after being selected as an All American at one of the summer camps hosted by Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA).
All Americans are selected to try out based on superior cheerleading skills at camps across the country.
Only the top 12 percent of the cheerleaders who attend varsity summer camps earn the chance to march in the holiday spectacular. In addition to performing in the London parade, the All Americans will have the chance to tour London during their seven-day trip.
“This is the 26th year we’ve been able to bring talented cheerleaders to London, where they can showcase their skills to a very enthusiastic international audience,” said Mike Fultz, the varsity international event coordinator.
Hopkins is in the process of fundraising for this once-in-a-lifetime experience. For more information on how you can help sponsor Hopkins, call (561) 248-3319 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
