Cheers to all my fellow Patriots fans!
My name is Hannah and I am in the middle of my rookie year on the New England Patriots Cheerleading squad. Words cannot even express how grateful I am to be a part of this amazing team. It’s a lot of hard work but I love every second of it and wouldn’t trade it for anything. Now that I am on the dancing topic, there was one experience in my life that made me realize that dance would be my lifelong passion.
When I was ten years old, I was selected to represent the United States on the U.S.A Dance Team in Riesa, Germany as a soloist. I received the opportunity to compete against people in my age group from all over the world such as Czech Slovakia, Hungary and South Africa. To be there at such a young age was an honor. It was a week long process with many elimination rounds, practicing, and making sure my routine was as close to perfection as it could get (and maybe a little sightseeing when I had some down time). I competed against 200 people in my age group and they were all incredible! I had never seen so many diverse dancers in one place. I was lucky enough to finish 9th. I couldn’t believe how far I got in that competition and I was so excited and appreciative because I knew how hard each of those girls had worked to get there. That was definitely an experience that I will never forget. It is one that changed my perspective on dancing and it made me realize how special the art of dance was to me.
Now, at 20 years old, I have finally been given the opportunity to pursue my dream and dance professionally in the NFL. I know that this is where I belong and I can’t wait to get back out on the field and cheer for the greatest football team in the League! Go Pats! See you on the sidelines! Hannah
