Basic to Advanced Cheerleading Stunts : How to Improve Your Cheerleading Stunt Abilities


Hi my name is Lucy Spain on behalf of Expert
Village here to talk about cheerleading stunts. Whether you’re a base, a flier, or a spot,
you can always get better at your craft, therefore improving the quality of the whole team. Some
great tips for fliers to use when working on flying are the following. Now we can’t
always have three or four people in our house who are skilled who can have us up in the
air, so it’s really important to try to find a ledge somewhere in your house, stairs work
really good for this. So if you can find a stairwell, it’s really great to be able to
take yourself on the stairwell like this, and you can use it because you’re kind of
thrown off your balance, so you’re going to have to really practice balancing that way.
Another good exercise you can do on the stairs like this are leg lifts, which just practices
us getting into our stunt. We can repeat these over the over and kick up into your heel stretch
etcetera. Another thing you need to practice when you’re flying when you’re by yourself
is really keeping all your weight in the balls of your feet. So you really need to make sure
you can rock back and forth comfortably. Because when you’re in other people’s hands, it’s
not going to be a flat surface just like the floor, so always remember don’t stand flat
footed. Keep your weight in the balls of your feet. Now as far as basing, the one thing
you can do to definitely improve your strength is work on your upper arm muscles because
that’s really going to help you be faster and smoother. As far as basing goes, it’s
really important to practice with the other base in your stunt group because you two really
need to be working as one unit. Your eye contact is really important. It’s really important
to make sure you can be on the same level. And make sure you always pop with your shoulders
as well as using your knees, because that’s really going to give you the added umph that
you need. So make sure you practice all these crafts by yourself to master the skills of
your stunt group.
