Cheerleading is a challenging and dynamic sport which is based on both dance and gymnastics. These team based programs:
- Enhance balance, co-ordination and agility
- Build strength, flexibility and power
- Develops self-esteem and confidence in movement
- Develop rhythm and timing
There are five elements taught in Cheerleading:
Pom-Pom – Pom cheerleading focuses on dance, flexibility, co-ordination, teamwork, turns, jumps, arm formations and dynamic displays for sports teams and competitions. Pom-Pom routines are an imperative part of cheerleading.
Stunts – working in a group, team members will experience learning all aspects of stunting from flying to basing, which develops trust, confidence, communication and team building.
Tumble – cheerleading uses tumble to change formations and create the wow factor in the routines. Tumble training builds strength, co-ordination and develops the art of working in unison with other team members.
Jumps – learning cheer jumps is a key dynamic aspect of cheerleading. Jumps are used in combinations to display power, flexibility and grandeur.
Dance – choreography brings the whole routine together and is therefore an intricate aspect of cheerleading. Co-ordination, timing, performance, team work and unison are learnt through dance.
