For over 28 years, cameron hughes has ignited crowds at events across the globe.
The only professional sports entertainer of his kind in the world, Cameron has performed at over 1,500 events including 2 Olympic Games, 5 NBA Finals, 3 Stanley Cup Finals, and the US Open tennis tournament. His relentless optimism, infectious cheering, and unbridled dancing have delighted and energized unsuspecting crowds, lodging Cameron’s indelible spirit in over 30 million people's memory banks – often without anyone even knowing who the man with the famous dance moves really is.
In his youth, Cameron could be found whooping it up on the sidelines of his high school basketball games and later sporting a hollowed-out melon atop his head in the crowd at Bishop’s University football games. A few years later, while attending a game of his hometown NHL team, the Ottawa Senators, Cam could feel the crowd’s desire for something exciting, and he got up on his seat and started dancing to Sister Sledge’s "We Are Family", the crowd went wild. Sens upper management reached out and offered him a recurring gig, and his unique career was born. It wasn’t all smooth sailing from that point on, there were many obstacles to overcome, but Cameron never stopped hustling and eventually made it to the world’s largest sporting stages. His new memoir, King Of Cheer, chronicles his unlikely journey from a kid who couldn't make his high school basketball team, to a guy living out his dream performing at the NBA Finals.
Although Cameron specializes in helping people laugh and let go, the heart of his story is equally about taking risks, challenging social conventions, seeking peak performance, and contributing to a greater purpose. His unorthodox method of connecting and inspiring crowds has been put into action not only at the world's largest sporting events, but also at corporate events for some of the world's most renowned companies, and in philanthropic service to those in need.
I’ve never seen anyone get a crowd buzzing like Cameron. His new book has the same passion and energy he brings to the games.
Cameron shows you that life is wild and beautiful, that you can truly get up and dance at any moment, and how you, too, can be a raving fan of yourself and others. The world needs this book right now!
