They successfully won third prize at the All Japan Cheer Dance Championship 2016. Awara City The sisters practice dance at home in Awara City. The elder sister Marin is the third year of junior high school, and the younger sister Miyu is the six grade of elementary school. They were chosen together as members of Wings Pearl last year. Marin is stoic and Miyu has something of a genius in dancing. They are the closest teammates and are also the most rival-conscious of each other. Higher, higher, more! Do you sometimes give her advice? How do you feel to listen your sister’s advice? Well, Their mother
Sanae Takahashi Miyu is competitive. But she seems to follow what her sister said to her. According to her sister,
she corrects. I think the dance of Wings Pearl this year is great because my sister performed amazing skills. Miyu is good at jumping and I am good at turning. I don’t know how hard the members are practicing at home. I think it’s good to have a rival near me and spend every day together. Marin started cheer dance at the age of four. And the younger sister Miyu, who has been seeing her, started cheer dance in the second grade of elementary school. Marin is scheduled to take high school examinations this year. So last year’s stage was the last as a member of Wings Pearl because only junior high school students and under can join it. We are separated by three grade, and after I started high school, we will not be able to perform on the same stage. So it was good that she joined in Wings Pearl this year and we could participate in the competition. In the national competition, our goal was winning so I was disappointed at the result third place. Even so, it was good that we could finish with happy tears and enjoyment together. What about you, Miyu? I regretted that we could not win but it was good we could dance together.

Not only that, cheer dance is a team sport so I hope they aware of others and realize that they can dance because there are other members So it would be great if they return it in cheer dance. I hope they grow into such positive girls. Takagi, Fukui City On this day Christmas Eve, an audition for the opening dance in a recital which will be held in March was held at the classes of elementary school and junior high school students. Such often held auditions make the students to become tense and improve motivation. And they do their best. They have always danced that way as hard as they could. After the practice, they had a Christmas party. For a while, they released the tension of the audition and came back to innocent children’s face. We will win in the national competition next year! I will enter Fukui Commercial High School,
join JETS (cheer leader club), go to America and absolutely win in the international competion! I want to win! I have company who support each other. I have a rival who I can’t lose to. Cheer dance is fun because I have company. OurLuster So you will keep on shining. We will win!
