Whether preparing for competition or wanting to wow your fans during a halftime performance, routine choreography can make all the difference!
Working his way up from the most basic of motions to synchronized tumbling passes, Britten Blackburn presents a variety of squad formations along with a multitude of transitions to "wow" the crowd during your next routine.
The formations highlighted in this production are:
- Two Line (Sideline) Formation
- Diagonal Formation
- Diamond Formation
- V and Inverted V Formations
- Bowling Pin Formation
Along with showing each formation, Coach Blackburn's cheerleaders demonstrate how to switch positions with each other using arm motions, spins, floor rolls, jumps, and tumbling. These transitions from one formation to the next can be done simultaneously or in a ripple pattern to music or words during a cheer.
