Basic to Advanced Cheerleading Stunts : When to (and Not to) Use Cheerleading Stunts


Hi my name is Lucy Spain on behalf of Expert
Village here to talk about cheerleading stunts. Now that we’ve learned stunts, when do we
use them in cheerleading? Now the answer is really really wide and open to whenever you
want to use them. They can be used during a cheer. They can be used during a thirty
second or a full time out. And most importantly, you’re going to want to be using these stunts
if you’re doing a half time show or if you’re doing a competition routine. Stunts can also
be used as transition methods, which comes in handy if you want to do something neater
than just walking around from spot to spot. We can get into a stunt, our bases can move
the stunts together to form a pyramid, you can move back to get into a position to a
cheer; it’s just a really interesting way to move. Another cool thing to do with your
stunts is to spin them. That’s a good way to get into a different position to change
formations. In cheerleading, we’re always in formations. Stunting just makes it a lot
interesting. Another thing you can do with your stunts is hold up signs once you’re in
the air, which is really cool for the crowd, because if they’re in bleachers, you’re going
to be eye level with them. So once you’re flier is securely up in the air, you can have
the spotter hand them signs. You can also have them have footballs and candy to throw
to the crowd. The signs are a really cool way to incorporate the crowd, especially when
you’re really up high in the air like that, and everybody loves it. So definitely use
your stunts as much as possible.
