"That was so cool and humbling," Stanley said. "How many girls can say, Babyliss Miracurl Nano Titanium
'This is me.' It was the biggest reality hit that I was a cheerleader."
And the potentially unnerving fact that millions of people would watch the New England Patriots' season opener on television also didn't intimidate her.
Then, at the final audition, Stanley tried on a swimsuit and interviewed with the cheerleading coach.
"I just had a feel for what a Patriots cheerleader did," she said. "It's the moment I fell in love. It wasn't cheering. It was dancing. I thought, 'This is me.'"
Stanley nonetheless danced and cheered without a hitch as the home team Patriots started their season with a win over the Cincinnati Bengals. The Sept. 12 game marked her first as a cheerleader. She has since performed at the team's Beats Orange second home game of the season, a win over the Buffalo Bills on Sept. 27.

"The camera crews are right next to you," Stanley said. "You can hear the crashing of helmets on the field. It's an amazing experience."
She was almost as shocked when attending a promotional event before the season started.
So, Stanley embarked on a journey not too dissimilar from an undrafted athlete who never plays football in high school or college but Ghd Uk Contact
"As Brittney Lynne has an extensive dance background, she did very well in the audition process. Some women who audition for the squad make it on their first attempt, but for others, the entire process is a learning experience and it may require more than one try.
"My mom looked it up online," Stanley said. "She said, 'You know, that would be a great opportunity to put yourself out there.' But I thought, 'A cheerleader? I never did that before. That's not me.'"

A stadium packed with about 69,000 football fans didn't make Brittney Lynne Stanley nervous.
Stanley learned she had made the squad in an e mail.

Stanley has danced most of her life. In fact, her life has consisted mostly of dance.
There, a fan asked if she could autograph her picture in the Patriots cheerleaders 2011 calendar, the photos for which were shot in the Dominican Republic.

But despite never having time or a curiosity for cheerleading at Nashua High School North, Stanley decided to give the Patriots a shot.
In February, she attended a workshop to get a sense of a cheerleader's duties, and immediately recognized that it appealed to the dancer inside her.
So the 19 year old Nashua native had to focus on staying synchronized with her fellow Patriots cheerleaders, all the while wondering, "Am I going to get hit by a football?"
