It’s that time again! The Going Pro Expo is making a tour stop in Miami in exactly one month … MARCH 10, 2013!! I am so excited to be coordinating this event for the 3rd year in a row and this time around we’ve changed up the format to appeal to more women looking to “GO PRO” in the dance, cheer and entertainment industry! This year, we truly have an ALL-STAR lineup of choreographers and presenters. On the schedule we have 4 separate “master dance classes” for those of you looking to brush up and/or learn new choreography, all taught by outstanding professionals with NFL, NBA, NHL and collegiate experience. Then we have full workshops and seminars on fitness, pageantry, broadcasting, pro team cheer & dance, etc… We even have a session devoted to social media!
This event is open to women who are alumni, current or aspiring entertainment professionals! It’s the perfect place to brush up on your skills, learn new material, find out all about the Pro Team Cheer & Dance Industry, Pageantry and Fitness…but most of all you can ask our experts all the questions you want. General registration gains you access to all workshops and even some “sidelines” sessions, then you can pick and choose which dance classes you want to take, or enroll in them all — the more you dance, the more you will improve, plus networking and making new friends & contacts never hurts!
The 2013 Miami Going Pro Expo is also the perfect place for pro, semi-pro and college cheer and dance teams to pick up new choreography to take to their own sidelines as well as great advice and tips on performance, makeup, hair & presentation, while enjoying a fun team building experience!

I am often asked and approached by women who are interested in joining the ranks of “pro” cheerleaders and dancers in the NFL and NBA. The problem is there aren’t always a lot of resources around to accurately prepare a candidate for the audition process, not to mention the choreography style, hair/makeup, fitness, attire and the interview process that are also a part of the road to Going Pro!
So, I am excited to announce that I am coordinating a “Miami Pro Dance Convention” for Going Pro Entertainment! The event takes place Sunday, February 27, 2011 at FitSource in North Miami. The are 2 separate sessions, AM and PM…and each has its own unique routines and presenters. I have some amazing choreographers and presenters on deck for the event and I know it’ll be a huge success. The agenda includes NFL and NBA style choreography, informative Q&A, as well as gift bags! 😉
