Hi, I’m Shyra from Excel Rebels in Orlando
Lakes, Florida. I’m going to be doing advanced cheer leading on behalf of Expert Village.
Hello, my name is Matt. This is Kayla, Cara, Brianna, and Shyra. We’re demonstrating the
liberty twist. First part we’re going to be explaining is the first spot. Your spot is
to hold on to the base’s wrist, help lift up and secure the stunt. You’re there for
extra support. Over here, as the end step, you hold with your right hand under the foot,
your left hand on top. Use your thumbs to squeeze tightly. When you load in, go up,
squeeze the top of the foot as well as the bottom the entire time and keep the stunt
steady. When you pop, pop through your shoulders and catch high. As far as the main base, you
hold with both hands under the foot. You go at the same time as the other partner. Go
straight up, extend, and squeeze onto the foot. When you’re ready for your pop, again,
pop through your shoulders, catch high. As the flyer, you step in most of the time with
your right foot. You hold onto your bases’ shoulders and when you go in you push up off
their shoulders stand straight up, don’t pitch your trick immediately because you will fall.
Wait till you are steady, then hit your trick. As for the pop, wait until you get all the
way to the top. It goes one, two, down, up. She’s going to twist down out of this stunt.
She rides up, twists to the left, catches her bases, and comes out clean. I’m the back
spotter. I hold onto the back of her right ankle the entire time and I hold onto her
rear. We push up all the way that you can, squeeze the ankle as tight as possible, wait
for the pop, pop high, wait for the twist, try to catch her under the armpits and then
unload, nice and clean. Now we’re going to do liberty twisting. Ready, one, two, pop,
one, two, and clean.
