Teneii Boykin Teneii "T" Boykin - Alumni Washington Wizard Girl and Baltimore Ravens Cheerleader. My name is Teneii but everyone calls me "T". I had the pleasure of starting professional cheerleading while attending Morgan State University for my degree in business administration. While attending school I cheered for my college competition team as well as the NFL Baltimore Ravens. I was very lucky that I was accepted into a difficult program and that we also won the Super Bowl! I was then selected for the NBA Washington Wizard Girls, where I experienced my hardest tryout ever. Dancing in the NBA became a once in a lifetime experience - cheering for the legendary Michael Jordan, touring the world to the Middle East and the Balkans, and appearing in a calendar. After a short break, I returned to the Wizard Girls to work with an AMAZING director that I actually cheered with over eight years prior. The experience was even better being able to be a calendar girl two more times, serving as co-captain and captain, all while obtaining a Master's in Business Administration. Throughout the years, I have also danced with amazing groups from X-faction and Capital Movement Project and have assisted the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders Ambassadors. Currently I am instructing with Throwback Cheer and other dance groups and cannot wait to be a guest choreographer for Going Pro Entertainment! Teneii will teach an NBA-NFL style routine during the morning session.

Lindsey MurrayLindsey Murray - Alumni Washington Wizards Girl and Washington Redskins Cheerleader. My name is Lindsey aka "Sizzle" and I've been dancing since the age of 3. I grew up training in all genres of dance, from tap and jazz, to musical theater, contemporary, and acrobatics. In college I was a member of the Ithaca College Dance Team, where we competed and were ranked Nationally all four years I attended school. Most recently, I had the pleasure of being a professional cheerleader/dancer for the NFL (Washington Redskins - 2 years) and the NBA (Washington Wizards - 4 years; 2 years Captain). In those 6 years I had the opportunity to perform in front of thousands, be involved within our local community, interact with fans, entertain our troops oversees, attend Pro Dance Conventions, learn from amazing choreographers, and make friendships that will last a lifetime...the experience is endless and no one can take that from me! I have recently retired from Professional Cheerleading/Dance, however I plan to continue my dance career elsewhere and look forward to new opportunities - including being a guest choreographer for Going Pro Entertainment! Lindsey will teach an NFL style "glam" routine in the morning.
