Silliman’s varsity cheerleaders recently took part in performances at Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

The squad performed with the National Cheerleaders Association and the National Dance Alliance. They made the trip after winning the Game Time Top Team Award at summer camp.

Silliman representative Katy Hayes said it was the second year the school was invited to the event.

The Silliman cheerleaders joined more than 830 performers from 41 states at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World on Dec. 3-8 to perform in the Disney Parks Frozen Christmas Celebration, a “Frozen” twist on the 31st annual telecast airing at 9 a.m. Thursday on ABC.

This year’s Christmas special, hosted by Louisiana native Robin Roberts, of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” is inspired by the blockbuster movie “Frozen,” about uniting family and loved ones, Hayes said.

Roberts will telecast from Disney World in Florida with support from Tim Tebow, GMA contributor and ESPN/SEC network analyst.

“This was a great experience for the Silliman cheerleaders,” Hayes said. “They are grateful to everyone who supported them in making this dream come true.”
