I’ve chosen this subject because Cheerleading's choreographies are complicated and incredible. Cheerleaders aren't afraid to put themselves in danger. Their acrobatic figures are impressive and I admire this show.
First, everyone imagine Cheerleading is a group composed of the girls like the ‘pom-pom girls’ we have in France, except for their choreographies are less dangerous and acrobatic. But, in fact when it started out Cheerleading was mainly composed of boys. Unbelievable but true !
Moreover, Cheerleading was born in 1898, during a football match, at the University of Minnesota in theUSA. A student took a megaphone and improvised a chant to support the football team. Then all students followed him and sang. It worked, the team won ! Other universities began to constitute cheerleader teams to sing and dance during football matches.
Finally, Cheerleading's organisation is easy, a team is composed of ata high school or a university. Their goal is to suppport sporties and to make their establishment more prestigious. These cheerleader teams complete in tournaments like << Cheerleading World Championships >> or << National Cheerleading Association >> to increase their reputation.
Unfortunately, I don't practise this activity, I would like to but I don't think I would be able.
So, for your curiosity, this is a video on Columbus High School, during a tournament :
