Then we’ll move on to Paisley patterns, an ancient design embraced by many cultures. Asian paper lanterns will shed light on the Far Eastern design styles.

Cheer Team

Cheer and tumble! Great team experience! No Stunting! Get Strong!

What can your body do? How strong can you get? This exciting program promotes fun, self-awareness, and community involvement! Cheer Team participants will learn dance, poise, arm motions, jumps, chants, cheers and mat skills. No stunts. They will learn of perfect round-offs, all kinds of cartwheels, and flexibility! They will also learn teamwork by forming groups to develop cheers. All moves are appropriate, and cheers are sharp looking, yet easy to learn.

Students will practice each week and will perform at public events such as area sporting events, games, and more! We will get to be spooky cheerleaders at the GLOW RUN in October! Outreach to other is an important part of our work and we will perform at nursing homes around the holidays. We will also perform at the Jingle Bell Express! Do you have an idea for an event? Let us know!

Pom-Poms are available for use during the games and events. There will be a team banquet at the end of the session.
