Basic Moves for Cheerleading Routines : How to Do the Candlestick Move in Cheerleading


Hi! I’m Mandy Butler on behalf of Expert Village
and I’m going to talk to you today about cheerleading motions. Now I’m going to show you the candlestick
position. What I’m going to do is take my arms from a low touchdown position and rotate
my shoulders upwards stopping in the middle. I’m going to bring my arms up. My big doughnut
holes are now facing the ceiling. I’ve got my arms nice and straight as if I’m holding
2 candlesticks. That’s why it’s called a candlestick position. If I bring this up, now I have a
high touchdown or a touchdown. Bring it down into a candlestick. Keep going and it’s a
low touchdown. Now, I’ve got my arms back up in the middle in front of my body. That
is a candlestick position. If I were to rotate my wrist downward, that would be buckets.
As it stands, I’ve got them right here as if I’m holding 2 candlesticks. That’s a candlestick
position. I may do a right candlestick or a left candlestick. When I’ve got them both
out, that’s a candlestick.
