A team-based sport that involves stunting, pyramids, baskets, tumbling, jump and dance. Trust and encouragement is key to the success of cheerleading. A great way to bond with your team mates and become a family, get fit and have fun.
The focus in this dance genre is on lines, formations, cheerleading jumps, sharp staccato arm movements and form. It may contain visuals, with both male and female participants and influences of hip-hop and jazz techniques. A great way to keep fit too.
Stunts are defined as building performances displaying a persons’ skill or dexterity and been previously referred to as building pyramids. Stunts range from basic two-legged stunts, to one-legged extended stunts and highflying basket tosses built on trust, strength and flexibility.
A brand new element of cheerleading! A unique fusion of street dance and cheerleading moves. You’ll find the funkiest, most up to date dance moves combined with cheerleading chants and a great way to be expressive and win the audience over.
