Jessie Leigh Dance & Cheer Academy - After School Club - Starts Thursday 8th March - KS2 only

Jessie Leigh Dance & Cheer Academy

Who are we?

Welcome to Jessie Leigh Dance & Cheer Academy - home of the fastest growing academy in the South Coast! We are excited to be entering our 2nd season and have learned over the previous year that while all of the trophies, banners, jackets and rings are great accolades, nothing compares to the feeling of belonging to the JLDC family.

While All-Star Cheerleading has exploded in growth in the UK, we believe that not all gyms are the same. With over 360 cheerleaders in 2 locations within the Gosport and Portsmouth region, we also have the largest After School Club Program in the area. Through all of this, we’ve stuck to our humble beginnings and kept the focus on developing our youth through this amazing sport.

Being a JLDC athlete means being a part of a supportive an inclusive family that truly lifts you higher. We can’t wait to welcome you! Young athletes with big dreams go far in life!

What is Cheerleading?

Cheerleading has two specific areas ‘Cheer Pom’ and ‘Cheer’. Cheer Pom involves dance, jumps, turns and some gymnastic skills whilst holding pom poms. The other type of Cheerleading involves stunting, tumbling, jumps and dance. The aim in this class is for the children to have FUN whilst learning more about their body awareness and developing skills. If interest is high in this class future aspirations of entering a team into competitions would be considered.

What's Next?

If your child enjoys the FREE Taster session they are invited to join our After School Club sessions. These run for 1 hour after school finishes and will be taught by our qualified and very experienced coaches. All coaches have a fantastic background in both dance and cheerleading and hold all required qualifications. We are all extremely excited to be back for another season. To learn more about the coaches please visit our website.

Students who participate in the After School Club sessions get the opportunity to perform at JLDC's annual Summer Showcase Event on 8th July 2018. This will be held at the Mountbatten Centre in Portsmouth and seats a crowd of 800+.

The After School Clubs will commence THURSDAY 8th March 2018 from 3:00pm - 4:00pm for a total of 4 weeks.
