The cheerleaders, who were selected during final auditions last week and arrived at The Pearl Hotel this week, met with the school's youth cheer team. The professionals were able to help coach a dance routine and share important messages about the value of excelling at education, having a positive self-image and participating in extracurricular activities.
The optimal times for shooting the Titans Cheerleaders Calendar involves sessions at sunup and sundown, with wake-up calls well before dawn to prepare (click here for a photo blog).
Director of Titans Cheerleaders Stacie Kinder said her team was pleased to visit the young people.
"It's great to have an opportunity to connect with young girls — whether it's on the Gulf Coast or in Nashville," Kinder said. "Cheer and dance are universal languages wherever we go. It's a great opportunity to be good role models and gain some new Titans fans at the same time!"
The three-day photo shoot at The Pearl Hotel is scheduled to conclude Thursday.
