6. Hitting The Dancefloor!

You’ve worked on your routine for months, there have been falls and bruises, and moves practiced a million times. You are ready.

Your heart beats faster and your feel your stomach flip, you wait patiently with your team as the music winds down from the previous performance. You feel the glare of the lights and hear the crowd quieten down. Your music comes on, you put your hands in the air and smile. It’s time to hit the floor!

8. DJ Caino

He dances, he sings along, he makes us laugh. He gets the crowd going and he looks after everyone. He also leads the best dance offs of any Cheerleading comp in the UK. What can we say? We love our DJ Caino!
