Cheerleading

 

Club Captain: Amy McGuinness
Coaches: Jaz Newton

 

Durham Divas are the cheer, dance and stunt squad for Durham University students, with over 80 members. We compete nationally with numerous successes including two Grand National Champion titles. Durham Divas consists of four competitive teams; Level 3 and Level 2 cheerleading teams, a Lyrical dance team and a Pom dance team. We also have a non-competitive performance team.

 

Our competitive cheerleading teams are energetic yet challenging with routines consisting of stunting, tumbling, jumps and dance. Experience in dance or gymnastics is useful but no experience is needed to join our teams and we will always look for the best in people and train you up from no experience to Grand Champions.

 

Pom dance incorporates a fast upbeat routine including a variety of jumps, kicks and turns, with strong arm movements using poms. Last year the team successfully placed 1st at regionals and 6th at nationals, it was also the first time that the category was included in the intercollegiate competition! Lyrical dance uses turns, leaps, floor work and flowing movements to create beautiful, heart-wrenching routines. The team also became Dance Grand Champions at regionals last year! The performance team doesn’t follow any competition guidelines or limits, so routines are creative and built to impress. It’s a great opportunity to push yourself, hone your skills, and learn high level stunts! Because of this, a year of either cheer or tumbling experience is needed for this team.

 

We’re looking forward to welcoming new members every year!
