The CHEER PRO™ courses focus on developing your ability to teach cheerleading dance, the very basics of fitness and checks that you possess technical skills to demonstrate correct cheer dance technique.

The new FOUNDATIONS and SPECIALISATION courses allow you to progress through the program from learning the foundations, to being a team leader and using CHEER PRO™ as a tool for teaching recreational cheerleading & fitness classes and routines

The CHEERDANCE & FITNESS Foundations course covers the following topics and activities. It should take you about 20-30 hours to complete the full FOUNDATIONS course, however, if you are new to cheerleading it could take a little longer.
