THE SPORT OF ALL-STAR CHEERLEADING

All-Star cheerleading is a competitive sport for both boys and girls.  Each performance is estimated to be 2:30 seconds long and includes many different skills including jumps, tumbling, stunting, pyramids, and dance segments. The dance portion of a routine consists of choreographed high energy dance moves. The routine is performed and scored against other competitive teams at various local, regional, national, and worldwide competitions. Tumbling includes, but is not limited to, gymnastic type skills such as cartwheels, walkovers, and back handsprings, the skills performed are determined by the skill level.  Stunting is categorized by a group of two or more individuals that elevate each other or another cheerleader in the air.  Some stunts include release moves and Stunts may also be performed by one base with one flyer.  Pyramids are a form of stunting that is done as a large group with interconnected moves.
