“What is Cheer Xpress and how long have you been in business?”
Cheer Xpress is a training facility for ages 2 1/2- 18 that focuses on Cheer, Dance & Tumbling. We have once a week recreational classes as well as competition teams. CX has been in business since 1995 and has offered competition cheer since 2004. We are proud to offer many different programs to meet the needs of your entire family, whether you are a 3 year old beginner or an 18 year old elite athlete, we have a place for you!
“What do your cheerleaders cheer for?”
Our cheer programs are performance / competition based. The cheerleaders focus on the athletic aspects of All-Star Cheer including, motions, jumps, dance, tumbling, stunting, cheering, strength, conditioning & performance skills. The All-Star competition teams compete at events in the region and our Rec Cheer classes perform at our recitals and local events. Although our students are asked to perform & make appearances at many events in our community, they do not cheer for a sports team but are ON a highly competitive team. All-Star cheer is extremely athletic & skill based, it’s basically 3 sports wrapped into one: Dance, Gymnastics & Acrobatic Tricks/Stunts! All-Star teams compete against other programs from all over the country, like CX. This is the type of cheerleading you often see showcased on ESPN!
“How are tumbling classes at CX different from gymnastics classes?”
Tumbling at CX is strictly floorwork tumbling. No other aparatus such as balance beam or bars are introduced to the students. The athletes work on our spring floor, foam floor, in-ground trampoline, tumble-track and foam pit. Various mats and equipment are used in tumbling classes. Students begin by working basics such as forward rolls, handstands, cartwheels, backwalkovers and eventually progress to backhandsprings, tucks and full twisting layouts.
“At what age do you start classes at Cheer Xpress?”
CX begins offering tumbling & Rec cheer at 2 1/2 years. Students must be potty-trained and be able to seperate from their parents. We allow parents of really young students to come into the class the first week or so to help get them accustomed to the gym and teachers! Rec Dance classes begin at the age of 3. Competition Cheer begins at 4 years old.
“My child has never done any cheer or tumbling before, is it too late to have her start classes at the age of 14?”
It’s never to late to start training! We are proud to offer classes for ALL ages & levels. We have recreational & competitive teams for beginning students of all ages so don’t worry about starting later in life! CX breaks students up by age & level in cheer, dance & tumbling classes.
