Alyssa Vachon of Manchester Wolves Lady Wolf Pack Selected as a Finalist for the Aaron's af2 Dream T
MANCHESTER, NH-- Alyssa Vachon, a three-year member of the Manchester Wolves Lady Wolf Pack professional dance team from Somersworth, NH, has been selected by the arenafootball2 league as one of only 24 finalists for the new Aaron's Dream Team.
Vachon, who was chosen from among hundreds of dancers from across the professional football league, is a 22-year-old hair stylist who has been dancing competitively since the age of 2. She has appeared in national competitions for the past 10 years and was a cheerleader on her high school team who made the All-Star squad.
For the first time, the af2 and one of its new partners, Aaron's, have created an exciting addition to this year's ArenaCup festivities - the Aaron's af2 Dream Team. The 2009 Aaron's af2 Dream Team will be involved in ArenaCup10 activities including performing during halftime of the championship game and appearances throughout the weekend of events. The team will be a special 12-member group comprised of dance team standouts from around the af2.
With so many stellar dance team participants in the league, narrowing the field down to a dozen is a tough task. Therefore, the af2 and Aaron's are enlisting the help of the fans. Beginning in May, a national online promotion called "Vote for your Favorite Aaron's af2 Dancer" will be conducted where fans will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite dancer. The top 12 dancers with the most fan votes will represent this year's 2009 Aaron's af2 Dream Team at ArenaCup10 in August.
"We're very pleased that Aaron's has partnered with the af2," said af2 President Jerry Kurz. "We are equally excited about the upcoming Aaron's Dream Team promotion and how the addition of this special group will enhance our annual ArenaCup festivities."
