Vivian is our next featured cheerleader. She’s a second year member of the Ladies of Ontario Fury dance team.
Why did you become a professional cheerleader?
I honestly never thought I would become a professional cheerleader. Growing up I was always in a sport or doing gymnastics but it wasn’t until I started high school; that is when I first started dancing. Eventually I joined the high school dance team & fell in love with performing. I just HAD to continue and it easily became a passion of mine.
What was your favorite experience as a professional cheerleader?
It would have to be the 1st performance of our 1st home game. Stepping out on the field and doing what I love in front of all the fans was just such a special moment for me. I still get those butterflies EVERY TIME I’m about to go on & perform.
What is your favorite dance style?
I love love love sassy and sexy style of dancing. I always enjoy hip hop as well but definitely like to add a little sass to my dancing.
What is your favorite dance move? What is your go to dance move?
My favorite dance move would have to be lots of hair flips & hip movement. Free styling is very important to me and I’m always trying to find new favorite moves:)
What are the three words that describe you?
Three words would be : competitive, passionate, determined
What is something that most people don’t know about you?
One thing that people don’t know about me is that I was never studio trained. Once I started dancing I just picked up as I went and mostly self-taught
What is your favorite music genre? Who is your favorite musical artist?
Picking a favorite music genre is always a hard one for me! I love music in general but it really depends on the mood I’m in at the moment. I can go from pop and hip hop one second then to hard rock next. And as of favorite musical artist, right now would have to be Chris Brown !
What is your guilty pleasure?
A guilty pleasure of mine would have to be MOVIES. I can sit and watch movies all day every day and it doesn’t matter which genre; although, my top five genres would have to be horror, history, drama, thriller and romance 🙂
Who is the one person that inspires you the most?
Just one!? Both of my parents would have to be the ones that inspire me the most. They have been my personal example of starting from the bottom and working your butt off to achieve better. They are constantly showing me to always work hard, be humble and never give up.
What is your motto to live by?
“Happiness depends upon ourselves.”- Aristotle . Life itself is so messy and it’s one big roller coaster of ups and downs but we always have to remember that it’s up to us to make things better. We have the power to change anything at any time.
What advice would you tell someone who aspires to become a professional cheerleader?
Always do your best & keep working hard. Never give up on whatever you’re trying to achieve. Every opportunity that comes your way, take it and if something wasn’t meant to be, that is because something better is coming. 🙂
