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 (UCA), Universal Dance Association (UDA), National Cheerleaders Association (NCA), National Dance Alliance (NDA) and United Spirit Association (USA).
Sutton performed in an exclusive pre-parade performance through Disney’s Magic Kingdom before hundreds of fans.
Besides enjoying a sunny trip to Orlando, performers also had the opportunity to enjoy a magical holiday season at Walt Disney World Resort parks.
“I am so excited to go to Walt Disney World and be a part of the Varsity Spirit Spectacular. This will be my first time at Walt Disney World and I am so excited for the opportunity to meet other cheerleaders from across the county who love what I love – cheer,” Sutton said before her trip.
