Cheerleader Routines

What is a Cheer Routine?

A cheer squad, also known as a cheerleading team, is made up of individuals who perform organized routines that typically include dance, stunts, and tumbling. Cheer routines are choreographed by coaches or choreographers. Competitive cheer teams compete against other squads to showcase their skills and are judged on elements such as difficulty, execution, and overall performance.

Routines vary depending on the level of the cheer team. Cheerleading routines at lower levels usually includes basic dances and moves, while higher level teams' routines often incorporate more advanced stunts and tumbling skills.

As a member of a cheer squad, one must have strong physical ability, coordination, and teamwork skills in order to succeed. While cheerleading can be physically demanding, it also offers many personal benefits such as building confidence, discipline, and leadership qualities. So what are you waiting for? Join the ECA cheer squad today!
