Worcester Warriors held a Sports Dance and Cheerleading Festival at Worcester University on April 21 as over 150 participants from local schools took part in a fantastic event.
The event was judged by Gemma Hinton, the Head Coach of the Dance in Motion cheerleaders, who perform at Sixways Stadium during every Guinness Premiership match.
The standard of both the Sports Dance and Cheerleading routines has really improved over the season and this culminated in North Bromsgrove High School being crowned the Sports Dance category winners.
Walkwood Middle School claimed the coveted Cheerleading category and South Bromsgrove High School took home the Spirit Award for their outstanding support to others throughout the event.
Steve Joslin, Warriors Community Manager, said: “The atmosphere was electric and it was lovely to see so many girls enjoying the event but also supporting each other during their performances.”
Meanwhile, Warriors Academy ace Andy Short and Community Manager Steve Joslin were guests of honour as they officially opened the Dance in Motion studios and training centre in Malvern recently.
The event on April 17 – that also included a performance by the Dance in Motion cheerleaders – saw the new studios open their doors for the first time.
The new studios have the latest facilities including full length mirrors, sprung floor and live video feeds to provide a perfect viewing facility for parents.
Gemma Hinton, the Head Coach of the Dance in Motion cheerleaders, said: “During the open weekend over 400 parents and pupils attended to view the new facilities and Dance in Motion we are really grateful that Warriors helped support our event.” The new studios are located in Sandys Road, Malvern.
