Basic Moves for Cheerleading Routines : How to Do the High “V” 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 cheerleading
motion of all cheerleading motions. You’re going to see this in jump approaches. You’re
going to see it in cheer after cheer and so many chants. It’s the high V. It’s very important.
When you’re in a stunt, especially in co-ed stunting, you’re going to have a nice strong
high V. What I’m going to do is bring my arms up above my head. My hands are in fists and
I’m in high V. If I want to check and make sure that my arms are properly placed, I bend
my elbows, put my hands on my forehead, and then extend them. I can see my fists in my
peripheral vision. That means they’re not back too far, and I can also tell that they’re
not too far forward. I’m in a nice high V. My big doughnut holes, this part of my hand,
are facing outward. Notice that this part of hand will never turn toward the back showing
my little doughnut hole, that’s what I call it for my little kids, while I’m in a high
V. I’m going to take this fist, I’m going to extend it above my head, and I’m going
to make a high V. You can also make a right high V. You’re going to see this in choreography
a lot. You can break that and bring it back. You’re going to see a left high V. Break it
and bring it back if you like. This all comes from the high V.
