VIDEO SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

 

This process is for NEW ATHLETES only.  If you did not cheer for MAC in the 2019-2020 season you are considered a NEW ATHLETE.  


Videos will need to be uploaded to a YouTube link and your link must be emailed to cstorres@modernamericancheer.com

Videos can also be sent to our Modern American Cheer Facebook page.  Just go to our page a click MESSAGE.

STEP 1

 

Learn this four 8 count dance and submit your video once you are confident you can perform.  Keep in mind this 8 count dance is even faster when executed with cheer music.  All Star athletes will need to learn a dance similar to this one in a short amount of time.

We as coaches are looking for effort and how fast an athlete can pick up a dance.  If you are considering making an All Star team you can expect a difficult dance.  This dance is challenging but not impossible.  Good luck and have fun.
