How to do Advanced Cheer Leading Moves : How to Do Basic Cheerleading Arm Motions


Hi, I’m Shyra from Excel Rebel in Orlando
Lakes, Florida. I’m going to be doing advanced cheer leading on behalf of Expert Village.
I’m going to go over the basic arm motions in cheer leading. Each routine, each cheer,
each segment in cheer leading is based on these motions. The first motion, we’re going
to start in a clasp position, is a high V. You’re going to jump out, make sure that your
arms are locked out straight. Your fist should have your thumb on the outside. Your thumbs
should look like you’re holding a bucket in each hand and this is the high V. Then we’re
going to clasp again, the low V is your next position. Same thing with your hands, the
doughnut hole should be facing the outside. Should look like you’re holding a bucket in
these hands also. Then the next position is a T. In each position, your arms should be
locked out, straight, and at the right level. They should be shoulder level. Your hands
should also look like your holding a bucket. The next position is considered a touch down.
Your arms are straight up and down just like a goal post. That’s why they call it the touch
down. This position can go straight down into a lower touch down. The next position that
we’re going to do is an L. It can be done right or left. Your bottom hand wants to be
shoulder level like your holding a bucket. The other hand wants to have the doughnut
hole facing the back. This can be flipped the other way considered a right L or a left
L. Then the next position is considered a K. They call this K, it could be done both
ways. The top arm is in the high V position. The low arm is in the lower V position. This
can be switched back to the other side. And a clasp position is right here. It can be
done at chest level. Usually, for cheer leading at football games or sports events and then
in a routine it can be done with elbows together to keep the routine clean and keep everyone
together.

  1. your low v's and high v's ARE wrong.
    for your low v you gotta go down more and a little bit in front of you
    and for high v you gotta put the v a little in front of you too

  2. awesome. but normally when you jump out your legs are about shoulder width apart. and the low V is lower. you should be able to look straight ahead and see your fist with your perifials

  3. @iloveuto88 I wonder what would happen if you all tried to concentrate on learning something instead of criticizing an adult that is trying to help Cheerleaders that want to improve.

  4. first off your high v is supposed to be out to the front not to the side. Your low v should also be to the front. Your t should be straight not leaning. Your so called touchdown is actually called high daggers and they are supposed to be leaning a little more. Oh gosh when you are in a k you should also be in a lunge facing the way your k is facing and your left arm was to high. Not being rude or anything like that but i can do waaaaaaaaaaaay better then what you just did!!!
