Let the adventure begin!
Hi! My name is Liza and I work in the Marketing Department for UCA at the Varsity Spirit Headquarters in Memphis, Tennessee. I can hardly believe it but in just a few short weeks All-Americans from across the country will be packing their bags and making the journey to one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the world for the Varsity London All-American tour. 2016-2017 marks the 33rd trip Varsity Spirit has hosted across the pond and this year is looking to be the best and biggest year yet. Be sure to tune in all week long as Brea, our UDA companion, and I keep you updated on all of the adventures happening in the UK as your Varsity London Correspondents.
Once we travel across the Atlantic and land in England, we will kick off the week with some incredible sight-seeing tours. We will have the opportunity to see breathtaking landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, and the London Eye. One night of the trip we will journey down the River Thames on a Disco Cruise and another we will see a West End show, Wicked! And of course, there will be plenty of time to shop!
On January 1st, the cheerleaders and dancers will ring in 2017 at the London New Year’s Day Parade. The historic streets will be filled with Red, White, and Blue as the All-Americans perform in front of thousands of fans and fill the air cheer, “LON – DON we love London!” This once-in-a-lifetime experience is something that the cheerleaders and dancers will cherish forever.
Staying on our side of the pond this year? Be sure to cozy up by the fire with a spot of tea and read our blog on Varsity.com every day to see what the All-Americans are up to.
