Welcome Fall! This session we’ll perform for the holidays at University Mall and for area sports teams! Lots of community building fun! All events are family friendly and fun for all!
This exciting program stresses fun, self-awareness and community involvement! What can your body DO? How strong can we get? Participants in Cheer Team will learn dance, poise, arm motions, jumps, chants, cheers and some mat skills. Learn or perfect moves such as cartwheels/roundoffs, and work on flexibility! You will also learn teamwork, play games, and form groups to develop cheers and dances! Practice is weekly. All moves are appropriate, and cheers/dances are sharp looking, yet easy to learn.
Outreach to others is an important part of our work, and we often perform for seniors and charity events. Do you have an idea for an event? Let us know!!
