Big Dance Cheer…LET’S GO!
On a rare sunny morning, 140 young cheerleaders took to the Twickenham Stoop stadium to perform a high energy routine choreographed by SueAnn Harris for the Big Dance Cheer, 2012.
With squads from America and Australia, the sense of importance was apparent from the word go. The aim for this high energy Big Dance event led by English National Ballet was to break the world record for the Largest Cheerleading Dance. Spirits were high and each cheerleading squad performed their own routines which were exeptionally well rehearsed. They then came together and performed the Big Dance Cheer in perfect unison, lighting up the pitch at the Twickenham Stoop.
Hakeem Onibudo was the host for the morning’s activities and as always, made sure everyone got involved. The audience of excitable school children learnt a simple routine and even the Broncos mascot Buck had a go! The event finished with 380 cheerleaders, school children, teachers and parents all performing a newly learnt routine on the field.
Without a doubt, the Big Dance Cheer brought some glitter, high kicks, pom poms, perfect unison and wonderful smiles to English National Ballet’s Big Dance programme. Fingers crossed for the official verdict on whether the world record was broken!
