Victoria Ames Nelson from Shallotte Middle School is one of more than 500 elementary, junior high and high school cheerleaders and dancers from throughout the country who will perform in the 2012 UCA/UDA Thanksgiving Tour at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla.
The individuals invited to perform in the parade are part of a select group of cheerleaders and dancers chosen as All-Americans during Universal Cheerleaders Association and Universal Dance Association summer camps across the country.
All-Americans are selected via tryout based on either superior cheerleading or dance skills. Only the top 12 percent of the cheerleaders and dancers from UCA or UDA camps earn the chance to march in a holiday parade of this caliber.
Nelson will perform with the UCA/UDA All-Americans group in the pre-parade at the Magic Kingdom Park on Thanksgiving Day. The Varsity All-American program is celebrating its 26th year of choosing camp standouts.
