Cheer is one of America’s fastest growing sports. Modern cheer isn’t about being on the sidelines of a football or basketball game—it’s about athletes performing dance, stunts and tumbling in fast paced routines. With many of the same benefits of gymnastics and dance, plus an unsurpassed teamwork element, cheerleading has developed into a challenging and exciting sport. Today’s cheerleaders are disciplined, accomplished athletes!

Gym Magic offers a multi-leveled program concentrating on age appropriate skill progressions. Our Cheer Academy classes cover a variety of levels suitable for any aspiring cheerleader. All classes involve cheer and tumbling for students of different skill levels.

Cheer Overview (3 & Up)

Beginner Level 1

Mini Cheer

(Ages 3-5 years)

*No prerequisites or experience required.

Our Mini cheer class is aimed for students male or female ages 3-5 years old. In this class they will be learning the basic skills of cheer motions, tumbling, and jumps. 

 

Our certified instructors follow a curriculum with an established progression of skills. These skills are required in basic cheer routines and serve as the fundamentals to help develop more difficult skills in higher levels. 

 

We will introduce arm motions, forward rolls, hand stands, cartwheels, and start working on cheers and dances as well as an introduction to different jumps. This class is structured to build balance and coordination for future classes and skills.

Intermediate Level 2

Mini Cheer

(Ages 4-5 years)

*Required: Level 1 completion or evaluation

This class is an excellent transition class from Mini Cheer level 1. In this class, we will improve flexibility, strength, and coordination through more advanced cheer skills. This class builds upon the skills previously learned in Mini Cheer Level 1.

 

Instructors continue to follow the same curriculum but concentrate on refining Level 1 skills while introducing slightly more difficult skills in Level 2. Instructors work on building confidence through the introduction of new equipment to help facilitate new movements.

 

We will introduce double toe touches, running cartwheels, bridge kicks, pike toe touches, and more.

What to wear: Students are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes that they can move around in (no jeans or jean shorts), hair pulled back all the way in a ponytail, and tennis shoes that are only worn inside the gym (we need them in shoes to be able to stunt).

Beginner Level 1

Tween Cheer

(Ages 11-16 years)

*No prerequisites or experience required.

This class is designed for students male or female ages 11 to 16 who want to learn the basic techniques of cheerleading. We will teach it all from beginning to end. Usually students at this level will advance quickly. Due to their older age, students are able to focus and take in the information at a faster rate. This will allow for less time to be concentrated on motions and basic cheers of previous beginner levels.

We will focus on increase stretching as this age group typically has less flexibility. We will work on Back Handsprings, Tucks,  Running Tumbling, Beginning Twisting, Stunting, and more.

 

Level one of Tween Cheer allows students to prosper as a team. Students in this class work on more difficult stunts, tumbling passes, and cheer routines, which entails incredible strength and determination. Conditioning and strength building is essential in this class. 

What to wear: Students are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes that they can move around in (no jeans or jean shorts), hair pulled back all the way in a ponytail, and tennis shoes that are only worn inside the gym (we need them in shoes to be able to stunt).
