What is it like working this age of children? Especially those who have no background with dancing? "Working with students ranging from 3 to 11 years of age, is quite a challenge. Most of the members have never had any prior cheer, dance, or tumbling experience. This year only 23% of the group, 7 out of 30, are members of private dance studios. I do my best teaching cheers, chants, and polishing up dance moves in order for the group to look presentable. I also have to pick a song or cheer mix that appeals to the group in order for them to perform to their highest potential. I will say that patience is one of the main characteristics that a sponsor must hold in order to have success with a group".
Thank You for your time.
Hope you enjoyed it!
Are the parents supportive to their children being in cheerleading? If not, does it affect you and the children? Yes, the majority of the parents are supportive of their child. If a parent is not satisfied with the way I run my cheerleading group, a parent conference is held with administration and parents are advised that they may remove their child from the group or adhere to the way things are run by the sponsor. Most of the time, the parents leave the child in the group because their child really enjoys being part of the group. Some of the concerns that parents bring up are: “Why are the little ones always towards the back of the group?” I explain that as their child matures and improves on their dance techniques, they are moved further to the front of the line. Also, I explain that I use my upper grade members to model the dance moves for the little ones and that eventually their child will be part of the front lines.
