Thanks to Armed Forces Entertainment, the Indianapolis Colts Cheerleaders and Blue were given the incredible opportunity to travel to Curacao and Puerto Rico on an 8 day Military Tour. They traveled to three different military bases and performed an hour show consisting of 13 dances, singing and hilarious skits from Blue. They also ran youth football camps and cheer camps for the children of our military heroes. It was an experience that the Cheerleaders and Blue will never forget!
During their stay in Curacao, the Cheerleaders and Blue visited and performed for members of our US Air Force. They had the unique opportunity to perform their show in an Air Force hanger with the American Flag hanging behind them. It was an honor to perform for them and they left Curacao with lots of memories and new friends.
After Curacao, they traveled to Puerto Rico and visited two different Coast Guard bases, one in San Juan and another in Aguadilla. At these two bases, the Cheerleaders and Blue ran a youth football camp and cheer camp on each base. They also performed their show on both of these bases. The best part of these shows was the ending when the Colts Cheerleaders invited up all the young girls that participated in the cheer camp to perform the routine they learned as the finale of the show! The kids were the highlight of the show and the Colts Cheerleaders could not have been more honored to dance beside them. One of the Cheerleaders favorite memories was watching the moms and dads smiles as they videotaped their kids on stage.
In between shows, the Cheerleaders and Blue had the opportunity to enjoy what Curacao and Puerto Rico had to offer! They snorkeled, drove ATVs, kayaked to Puerto Rico's Bioluminescent Bay, rode horses on the beach, and learned to surf!
The trip to Curacao and Puerto Rico was coordinated in conjunction with AFE- Armed Forces Entertainment which is the official Department of Defense agency for providing entertainment to U.S. military personnel overseas. The Colts Cheerleaders and Blue feel extremely honored that they were able to support the US military men and women overseas. The youth clinics and show was their way of saying "thank you" for the sacrifices the U.S. military personnel make during their tour of duty. The Cheerleaders and Blue said that this tour was "one of the best weeks of the year and they were incredibly grateful for the opportunity to say thank you to our military families".
