News from the Jills and a Bandettes update!

First up, as we all should know by now, Emily, a 4th year vet for the Buffalo Jills, spent some time in Hawaii recently as the Jills' well-deserving representative to the Pro Bowl. As usual, Pro Bowl Dan was on hand getting lots of great pictures of all the cheerleaders there, some of which can be found on
We have some of his pics of Emily here.

I have to admit, it's going to be sad not seeing her beauty on the sidelines in 2014...seems only yesterday when she was celebrating her 19th birthday at the Jills Open Practice her rookie season as seen in this pic from that day with Jacki and Jill.

Last year, Emily spent the Super Bowl in Japan. This year, Christina, in her 8th and final season on the Jills, jetted off to Alaska to Clear Air Force Station and Fort Wainwright as a member of the ProTour Productions All-Stars.

One piece of advice if you're looking to try out for the dance squad is this: Get accustomed to the Jills' style of dance before tryouts. Jills choreographer Kelli Wagner has a unique snap-and-flash style that, if you're not used to it, can throw you off. You can get the moves right but if the proper level of energy isn't there, it'll hurt you in trying to make the squad. I've seen that happen many times myself. Your best bet is to not only take the optional dance prep classes that Kelli offers at Fusion, but watch videos of the Jills in action. There are numerous Jills videos on our YouTube page at
