Town of Cortlandt Cheerleading Camp Showcase (VIDEO)

Every Friday, Hen Hud's smallest cheerleaders give a big hip-hip-hooray for their home team at their weekly camp showcase.

Dressed in glittery purple and blue, 35 girls ages five to 11 will cheer for a crowd of parents this Friday afternoon as part of the Town of Cortlandt Cheerleading Camp's weekly showcase.

While cheering for the Sailors, the girls display the same smile and pep found in Nicole Selvaggi-Landry, the enthusiasitc Hen Hud High School 2009 graduate who works as the camp's director.

"Cheerleading has been such a passion of mine since eighth grade," Selvaggi-Landry said. "I started cheerleading in 8th grade and working as a coach the first year out of high school and never gave it up."

In addition to Directing the camp in the summer, Selvaggi-Landry also coaches JV Fall and Winter Cheerleading and co-coaches Varsity fall and winter competition team with Nichole Kelly, a middle school english teacher at Blue Mountain Middle School for the Hen Hud school district.

The Cheerleading camp is a run by the Town of Cortlandt Monday through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. for four weeks in the beginning of the summer. The camp is held at

Four local counselors, two Hen Hud alum and two current HHHS cheerleaders also work at the camp:Brittany Sternberg, who graduated in 2010 from Hen Hud; Kym Vigliotti, who graduated in 2011; and Eden Zilker and Caitlin Guidia who will be a junior and senior, respecitively next year.

How can I get in touch with the leader of this group? Hen Hud's class of 62 is going to be at the high school on Friday afternoon and we would love for the girls to greet us in some way. I can be reached at 360-385-1713 or email me a miriam.classreunion@yahoo.com It would be such a thrill since some of us attending are former cheeleaders.
