Bringing together fan favorites from the two most successful rival cheer programs in the country, CHEER LIVE will transform the nail-biting sport of competitive cheerleading into a first of its kind premiere athletic event staged with the epic production value of a live concert. CHEER LIVE will change the way the sport is viewed forever, allowing younger & aspiring cheerleaders to envision a future of cheerleading beyond the mat.
Members of the CHEER LIVE cast spoke with Inside Cheerleading about what it means to be a part of this one-of-a-kind of experience and what fans can expect from the tour! Stay tuned for more in the April/May issue of Inside Cheer. Subscribe now at www.shopinsidenation.com.
CHEER LIVE is showcasing cheer athletes on a whole new level. Tell us what that “level” means to you.
That level is where we push the boundaries of Cheer and challenge the cheer industry to look at new ways of innovating the sport. I hope that some of the skills we bring to the floor will begin to become skills that we see teams competing with in the future. For me… this is the no-limit level! -Gabbi Butler
What I mean by next level is this is something that has never been done before. This tour gives athletes the opportunity to showcase their talent with no limitations or judgment from a score sheet. Skies the limit for us and we are thrilled to shed more light on the cheerleading industry as we take it up a notch. There is not a “professional cheerleading” Or “going pro” in this sport yet and we are about to redefine cheerleading by making it BIG. -Morgan Simianer
Share a statement with your younger self! Did you ever think you’d be making history by being part of an epic tour?
To my younger self…we did it! We’ve done everything we’ve ever dreamed of and even more. We’re about to go on this crazy tour and you never thought in your mind you’d be doing something like this. Watching Bring It On you always dreamed of this, but now you are the standard you wanted to be and above and beyond. You’d be so proud of us. -James Thomas
Can you share a teaser with our iC fans of what to expect?
Honestly on this tour you can expect craziness. You can expect to see us do insane flips, there’s no rules, there’s no limits so all of the crazy tumbling, stunting, baskets, pyramids – it’s just going to be us having fun. – Angel Rice
What do you hope the fans coming to CHEER LIVE take away from this one-of-a-kind experience?
Once our fans and supporters watch this tour throughout North America there are a few things they can take away from this. First being that we are all dedicated and passionate athletes, and yes, we are competitive, but we all have one goal and it’s just to have fun. To express ourselves freely and have a great time with each other on the floor. I also hope they can take away that cheerleading is more than cheerleading: cheerleading is a lifesaver and a safe place. -Terrell Cabral
