Why Cheerleading you ask?

Teaching kids to be Strong, Confident, Determined and Smart 7 days a week.
Will your child be next to benefit from what All Star Cheerleading has to offer?

There comes a day when our time as cheerleaders end. We trade bows for a briefcase, cheer shoes for high heels, and competitions for the “real world”. Suddenly, we’re adults. While we spend endless time in meetings and in our cubicles, it seems as though we may never identify with our former cheerleader selves. But much to our surprise, we slowly start recognizing our inner cheerleader in our new adult lives. Little did we know that our time as a cheerleader could really benefit us in the real world.

Comfortable in Front of a Crowd
As a cheerleader, whether you’re performing for a crowd, teaching a kids clinic, or competing, you spend the majority of your time in front of people. All this time spent in front of a crowd builds confidence to command attention. Suddenly, when you’re asked to give a presentation at work it’s not a problem for you. You’re used to delivering a message to masses of people so you won’t break a sweat showing a PowerPoint to a room of coworkers.

Master of Time Management
From practices, competitions, and events, a cheerleader’s schedule is always full. Thankfully, through the years, having a busy schedule has made us great at prioritizing. When the real world throws a handful of events at you, you’ll be able to manage your time without worry.

Conqueror of Conversation
Chances are if you’ve cheered, you’ve spent an evening or two selling raffle tickets or volunteer at events. Most times during these events you’ve been set free to mingle with guests and represent your school. You’re a pro at making casual conversation. This ease of conversation translates well in the real world when you’re at work events. You can show up to an event knowing hardly anyone, and leave knowing all attendees. Networking is never a problem!

Everyday Energy
In interviews I was asked to describe myself in one word. My answer – energetic. Cheerleaders can’t help to be, well, cheerful. You can conquer each day knowing that your sunny disposition will brighten the culture of the office._DAV6922

Early Bird
Cheerleaders are no strangers to an early morning. After waking up at literally the crack of dawn to begin the extensive process of getting ready for competition day, we’re used to coffee fueled early mornings. Need to be at work by 8:00 am? You can confidently get to work on time rocking expertly done hair and makeup without having to set multiple alarms to do so.

There’s a saying in the cheer world that goes something like “15 minutes early is on time, and on time is late”. Cheerleaders have been conditioned to be punctual. This mindset is well received in the real world. Showing up early for an interview or event always looks impressive. Your boss will always know they can count on you to be on time.

Because of cheerleading, we are ready to take on the real world! Thank you cheerleading for teaching us important lessons that benefit us not only as cheerleaders but as adults as well.

We Encourage kids of all ages to believe in themselves and their team.

Choosing a Dance Studio

Finding the right dance studio can be an overwhelming task. There are dozens of studios in our local area, all with their own unique programs and focuses. Some studios are purely recreational, others are preparation for a career in dance, then there are also the competitive studios, and the ones that are just for fun and fitness.

So, which one is for you?

Here are some things to think about.

Does your child want to participate in performances? If so, how many?

Are you interested in competitions?

Formalised systems of training that include exams, is this something that interests you?

Your unique family situation will help determine your choice of commitment level: recreational, semi-competitive, competitive, examination, and pre-professional.

Next you should look at the qualifications and experience of the staff. Be wary of studios that you’ve see the students and teachers, great dancers don’t always make great teachers. Always check whether student teachers hold a Certificate III in Assistant Dance Teaching or equivalent in-house teacher training.

What you should look for.

You should look for sound teaching qualifications, good communication skills, excellent understanding of safe dance practice, appropriate safe dance space, First Aid certified, a basic understanding of Occupational Health and Safety obligations, awareness of age appropriate content, costumes, activities, and lesson structure, positive and nurturing learning experienced, and clearly defined assessment procedures.

Can you ask questions?

A well run studio will make asking questions easy. Ask the teacher or studio owner some of the following:

What are the studio’s aims and objectives?

Do teachers participate in professional development?

Does the studio teach a recognised syllabus or its own curriculum?

How are students assessed?

Does the studio follow safe dance procedures?

Is the studio covered by public liability insurance?

Is there an illness and injury reporting procedure?

What is the studio’s policy regarding exams and competitions?

What is the studio’s dress code? What is the studio’s policy for parents observing classes?

Does the studio have a Child Safe policy or statement?

Do all staff hold Working with Children Checks?

What are the fees and fee policies?

Lastly, ask for a trial or a money back guarantee, if no trials are available. Every studio is unique, there is no right or wrong, just what feels right to you.

Great Benefits of Cheerleading

Cheerleading for adults is an awesome, demanding and serious sport.  And, like any sport, it requires endurance, flexibility, teamwork, and commitment.  And those who practice cheerleading reap many health benefits.  Signature Cheer Senior

To kids, especially to those kids who are glued to their phones and tablets all day, cheerleading helps with

  1.     Physical endurance and health because it is a fun exercise that can be practiced several times a week, and with this frequency comes improved stamina, flexibility, balance, appetite, sleep and a stronger immune system.  Of course, it strengthens the muscular, circulatory as well as the skeletal systems while increasing lung capacity, heart, kidney and liver health. As a physical endurance sport, it practically affects the entire body. Aligned to this is the building of basic health:  Core, muscular and inner body strength.  Certain cheerleading positions when practiced help to make this happen. Breathing is also improved because of the cheering and yelling that comes with the exercise.  Some cheerleading exercises require lifting their cheerleading mates, doing aerobics exercises, and even stunts that improve concentration and willpower.
  2.     Self-Esteem naturally increases in a child who sees people applauding and appreciating her moves.  Self-esteem pushes them to improve and to learn more tricks. Cartwheels, round-offs, somersaults, rolls and other tumbling moves display their flexibility, strength and power. In addition, these skills help them build a well-coordinated, well balanced and healthy body. They also learn stretching as part of their routine which is a valuable skill in preparing the muscles for exercise and for cooling down after.  Their teammates will make them feel that they are “in” and accepted at school. Cheerleading will help them become a part of a group that is looked up to by other kids, and membership will make them popular.  This inspires others to follow their example.  Thus, overall their confidence is increased.

Confidence leads to leadership skills.  Gaining skills as a cheerleader naturally develops their leadership skills because they learn teamwork. Giving advice to their teammates becomes second nature to them. They realize how a positive mood can enhance and lighten up a practice session.  They will notice that their friends start looking up to them as a role model. They also sees why they need to keep improving and not just for the physical and social benefits but because teamwork instills discipline and other core values like patience, determination, will power, persistence and inner strength.  As they go deeper into the sport of cheerleading, they also improve their performance skills. This helps them become a well-rounded adult who is able to contribute to society and become a good image to people who are younger than they are.  They also develop presentation skills.
