Basic to Advanced Cheerleading Cheers : How to Have a Clean Stance When Cheerleading


Hi, I’m Lucy Spain on behalf of Expert Village.
I’m going to show you some cheer leading squad cheers today. We’re going to talk about chants,
and I’m going to demonstrate some that you can take to your squad. Now it’s really important
as cheer leaders to know how we’re supposed to stand while we’re waiting for cheers to
be called, in between cheers, after and before. Now the basic stance we’re going to want to
use when standing still, watching the game, is going to be feet a little bit further than
shoulder width apart and a lot of times we’re going to want to keep our hands held behind
us. This is a really clean, appropriate stance. Make sure you’re paying attention to the game.
It looks formal. A lot of squads will also do hands on the hips, which is a nice variation.
It’s a little harder to hold for the duration of a whole football or basketball game. This
one’s a little more relaxed. We can also do a stance with our feet together, arms behind.
That one’s nice as well. Now it’s really important to choose clean / cling stance that the whole
squad is going to be comfortable with. Sometimes we’re going to use fist. We want to make sure
that we’re really, really tight. Now this is going to be used to start every cheer and
end every cheer. This is an example of the fists. We can also do the blades which are
appropriate as well depending on what cheer we’re going to be in. These can also be used
intermittent in the chant, which is when we repeat, so we might do…Go team! Go team!
Go…back to our stance. Go team! Go team! Go…back to our stance. This just makes sure
that everyone is together, and everyone is staying neat.
