Amira Lewis from Highlands Junior School in Highlands is one of more than 500, junior high and high school cheerleaders and dancers from across the country that will represent Varsity Spirit in the 2019 Thanksgiving Tour at the Walt Disney World® Resort in Orlando, Florida.

The individuals invited to perform in the parade are part of a select group of cheerleaders and dancers chosen as All-Americans during Varsity Spirit summer camps across the country. All-Americans are selected via tryout based on either superior cheerleading or dance skills at camps operated by Universal Cheerleaders Association, Universal Dance Association, National Cheerleaders Association, or National Dance Alliance.  Only the top 10% of the cheerleaders and dancers from Varsity Spirit camps earn the chance to march in a holiday parade of this caliber.  

Amira Lewis will perform with the Varsity Spirit All-Americans in a one-of-a-kind pre-parade performance through Disney’s Magic Kingdom® Park on Thanksgiving Day. Besides enjoying a sunny trip to Orlando, All-Americans will have the opportunity to meet cheerleaders and dancers from across the nation and enjoy a magical holiday season at Walt Disney World® Resort parks. 

“I am looking forward to meeting all of the talented cheerleaders from around the Nation and performing at Disney,” Lewis said. “I am very honored to be chosen as All- American and to represent Highlands Junior School in this year’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.”
