Ashley While we’re making a transition into Spring sports we often forget about competitive cheerleading. I traveled to Princeton to share an inspiring story with you tonight. This story from Dynasty Gymnastics and Cheer will put a new perspective on a cheerleader bringing joy to a crowd. Makara Taylor has been an athlete at Princeton’s local competition cheerleading gym for two years. She first showed interest after attending her big sister’s cheerleading competitions. While she may be an athlete, she brings a lot more to the gym then just a competitive mentality. Allana Taylor, Sister and Dynasty Cheerleader; “it’s awesome to see her do things that most people would expect her not to be able to do, and its good that she can like defy those expectations of her . ” This 11 year old cheerleader was diagnosed with Individual Team. Megan Belcher, Dynasty Gymnastics and Cheer Owner;”She was a little bit nervous at first but the individual she does on the floor for a minute and a half, she does a routeen all by herself, so she toubles she dances she jumps all by herself she usually wins everybody heart so she usually comes out on top for first place.” While she embraces all of the same activities as her peers, she does carry shining qualities that differentiates her from the other kids at the gym. Megan Belcher, Dynasty because she’s always in such a good mood.” While many might say she grabs the attention of the crowd when performing, her family has a much deeper reaction to her routine. Allana Taylor, Sister and Dynasty Cheerleader;”We cry almost every single time just because even though we know what she’s going to do we’ve seen it a million times its just she’s so happy and enthusiastic about it its heart warming to see her do it so yeah we’re very supportive of her.” As for whats next you can catch Makara in Gatlinburg TN on May 4th competing in the Easten Cheer Nationals.
