Reunited and it "Cheers" so Good!
It’s great to hear about what our Alumni Cheerleaders members are doing after cheering. We found out what Leslie Henderson Twyner who is a former Cincinnati Bengals Cheerleader (1997-1998) and now Mom to two adorable daughters is doing now.
Leslie is originally from Cincinnati, Ohio where she received her undergraduate degree in education from the University of Cincinnati. At the age of seven, Leslie began ballet, tap and jazz lessons which sparked her interest and passion for dance and performing. She cheered professionally for the Cincinnati Ben-Gals.
Leslie relocated from Cincinnati to Miami to pursue a career in modeling. She worked as a runway and print model for several agencies in South Florida. Also, during her time there, she landed a role as a dancer in the 1999 film “Any Given Sunday” starring Jamie Foxx.
Leslie traded in the modeling and acting career when she became a mom and is now a sales and marketing representative for Johnson and Johnson. Even though she hung up her poms, she still enjoys taking hip-hop and salsa dance classes and participates in performance showcases through her dance studio. She and her two daughters currently reside in Indianapolis where both of her daughters take dance classes as well. You never know… there may be two future Pro cheerleaders in the making.
