Our Galaxy Universe-ity Recreational Cheer program provides children with an opportunity to put their bodies in motion. Our recreational programming keeps our students on their toes while having fun. Students build strength, coordination, stamina, flexibility, balance, poise and most importantly, self-confidence! They learn more than form and technique and emerge with a sense of leadership, teamwork, discipline, and goal setting.
Proper Class Attire is a T-shirt or tank tops, cheer shorts, tennis shoes, and socks. Please remember all hair must be pulled back from face and to remove all jewlery before class.

In our Galaxy Recreational cheer classes, children will learn fundamentals of cheerleading… GALAXY STYLE! Students will increase their knowledge base of cheer motions, jumps and also begin to learn the basics of Level 1 stunting. As the class levels increase, the pace of the skills will increase, the jumps become jump combos and they will also focus on tumbling! This is a great stepping stone to gradually introduce them to the world of All Star Cheer.
