A total of 21 Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders will travel on four separate trips and will visit eight countries in four weeks. “We feel so privileged to be traveling abroad and representing the Miami Dolphins, says Emily Newton, Director of the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders. “Our international fans, including our U.S. service men and women, show us so much support and our goal as a team is to show our love and support right back!”
The first of the three trips is to Cancun, Mexico. Veterans Mariela, Tatiana, Natalie D. and Nikki, along with rookies Rochelle and Jessica, will be representing the Miami Dolphins in conjunction with NFL Mexico.
Also departing for international waters are a group of eight MDC accompanied by Miami Dolphins alumni Shawn Wooden and Troy Drayton. Their 17 day tour stops at various military bases in Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey and Egypt. Natalie W., Brianne, Kylee, Lauren C., Lily, Elizabeth, Karina and Nicole will be performing a full show at each location, including participating from the two alumni.
2013 Pro Bowl Cheerleader Amy will be piggy-backing her travels to Hawaii straight to Beijing. Traveling with other Pro Bowl cheerleaders, the group will be performing together as part of an NFL China initiative.
The traveling ends with the closest stop of them all—Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Visiting the famed military base only 90 miles from the southernmost tip of Florida will be Samantha, Kasey, Tori, Melissa, Kiley, and Georgia. The six MDC will be in Cuba during the Super Bowl and will most definitely be helping those stationed at GTMO cheer on the two teams as they battle for the championship.
