Some photos from Atlanta

This weekend was the 10th Anniversary P-R-O convention in Atlanta hosted by All-Pro3 Inc, bringing pro level cheerleaders and dancers in from around the country, exchanging ideas and dance moves for the upcoming season. Jills choreographer Kelli Wagner led the Jills dance captains and several other Jills down to Atlanta for the convention.

It was also a time for reunions and Lisa, fresh off her January appearance in the Pro Bowl, got to reconnect with some of the girls she met in Hawaii.

That wasn't the only reunion taking place in Atlanta though as another very familiar face was on hand as well.  The Gotham City Cheerleaders, founded in 2012, aim to connect the talent in the Big Apple with the sports teams in the NYC area.  Last year, Jills alum Ashley W (2008-09) joined up with the Carolina TopCats and subsequently won their rookie of the year award and will be back on the sidelines at Bank of American Stadium to cheer on the Panthers. This year, it's Jills alum Natalie (2010-11), whose career lasted but 2 seasons, but possibly the strongest 2 seasons a Jill could have. After 1st blogging for the Bills website about her tryout experiences, she won the dance rookie of the year award and then followed that up by being named co-captain in her 2nd season. Now she's been working with the Gotham City Cheerleaders and got to reconnect with some of her Jills squadmates there.
