Welcome to the Suffolk All Stars Cheer Academy.
Cheerleading classes originally started as an additional class to the Erin-Lea Murphy School of Dance in 2014 as a way to incorporate tumbling gymnastics / acro and lifts to the timetable.
The classes have expanded and the standard of the athletes have become higher and higher so that we now have our own Cheer Academy.
We have classes every Friday at Saxmundham Free School.
5-5:30pm Little Stars Prep School (4-6yrs) - Learning the basic drills, stunts and tumbling technique we use in Cheer as well as following the lower levels of the Acrobatic Arts syllabus, USASF and IASF levels and British Gymnastics Spirit Awards 1-6.
5:30-7:00pm Suffolk Stars - this class is divided into two teams 'Polaris' and 'Sirius'
We break our session down in to cover drills, stunts and tumbling up to USASF / IASF Level Two. We also follow the Acrobatic Arts syllabus for tumbling and Acro and the British Gymnastics Spirit Awards Bronze-Gold.
Cheerleading is an intense physical activity for sports team motivation, audience entertainment or competition based upon organised routines.
The routines usually range anywhere from one to three minutes, which may contain many components of tumbling, dance, jumps, cheers and stunting in order to direct spectators of events to cheer for sports teams at games or to participate in cheerleading competitions.
Cheerleading originated in the United States, and remains predominantly American, with an estimated 1.5 million participants in all-star cheerleading. The presentation of cheerleading as a sport to a global audience was led by the 1997 start of broadcasts of cheerleading competition by ESPN International and the worldwide release of the 2000 film Bring It On. Due in part to this recent exposure, there are now an estimated 100,000 participants scattered around the rest of the world in countries including Australia, Canada, China, Colombia, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
Our athletes follow coaching recognised by the USASF (United States All Star Federation) and the IASF (International All Star Federation) which is recognised by CheerGB, BCA (British Cheer Association), Sports Council UK, Future Cheer UK and Legacy Cheer UK as well as the Acrobatic Arts Syllabus and British Gymnastics.
