Bangalore, April 24 (IANS) The svelte Washington Redskins Cheerleaders, who have created more than a stir with their presence in the Indian Premier League (IPL), will leave behind a bunch of girls trained by them to set up a permanent presence here. The first ever Pro Cheerleader audition in India got started two days after their arrival here April 13 to create the first ever cheerleading squad in the country for Bangalore Royal Challengers, for their inaugural game April 18.

The Washington Redskins cheerleaders, known as the “First Ladies of Football” in the United States, have a squad of 12 Cheerleaders and two choreographers in India. They were scheduled to spend 18 days travelling across India with the Royal Challengers owned by Vijay Mallya.

Though the squad will leave India, Entertainment and Cheerleading Director Donald Wells and two-year veteran Sharica will be here for three more weeks, according to the Redskins website.

Wells will then hand over the new squad to Stephanie Jojokian, Director and Choreographer of the Redskins cheerleaders, in mid-May. She will spend 10 days with the Bangalore cheerleaders.

By the time this project is complete, the Redskins Cheerleading department will have spent over 10 weeks creating a new cheerleading world in India.
