Flagstaff Cheerleader To Perform In London New Year's Day Parade
by Navajo-Hopi Observer

FLAGSTAFF, AZ. - Flagstaff High School student Daniell Albert is one of more than 500 high school cheerleaders and dancers across the U.S. who will perform in the word famous London New Year's Day parade in 2015. Albert is Hopi and Navajo.

Individuals invited to perform in the parade qualified for the trip after being selected as an All American by Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA), National Cheerleaders Association (NCA), United Spirit Association (USA), Universal Dance Association (UDA) and National Dance Alliance (NDA). All Americans are selected to try out based on superior cheerleading skills at camps across the country.

Varsity has put on camps since 1974. Since then, they have been leading the way by combing high-energy entertainment with traditional school leadership. Each year Varsity Brands trains over 325,000 cheerleaders at more than 5,000 camp sessions.

Only the top 12 percent of the cheerleaders who attend varsity summer camps earn the chance to march in the holiday parade. In addition to performing in the London parade, the All Americans will have the chance to tour London during their seven-day trip.

"This is the 26th year we've been able to bring talented cheerleaders to London, where they can showcase their skills to a very enthusiastic international audience," said Mike Fultz, Varsity International event coordinator.

Albert is of the Parrott/Katsina Clan from the Village of Old Oraibi, Ariz., on the Hopi reservation. She is the daughter of Lanell Poseyesva and Dexter Albert of Flagstaff, Arizona. Her grandparents are Meranda Nutumya of Old Oraibi, Arizona, and Phil Poseyesva of Second Mesa, Arizona, and Marlene Sandoval of Grants, New Mexico.
