In Wetumpka, Alabama, more than 100 future cheerleaders and dancers descended on Wetumpka High School for a one-day clinic. It’s it’s a great way to build a feeder program from what they are doing into what you are doing. The clinic was for females interested in dance and cheer between six-years-old and eighth grade. It helps them interact with other kids and they are taught basic skills that will help them. Participants were divided into four groups based on ages and rotated between cheer stations and dance stations. Split between Wetumpka High’s two gyms, the cheerleaders taught the fundamentals in the old gym, while the dancers kept it moving in the new one. Campers were taught cheer motions and stunts and cheer routines in the old gym. Dancers taught the participants different lifts and techniques. The one-day camp brought with it a $35 entry fee that helped the school’s dance and cheer programs.
