Dauntsey’s School cheerleading team, The Dauntsey’s Dynamites, has won the school and community team division at the ‘Legacy Cheerleading and Dance Southern Regional Competition’. The team of 29 cheerleaders travelled to Crystal Palace to compete against groups from across the region.
Kirsty Glynn, Dauntsey’s School Head of Dance said: “The girls train for one hour a week and have been preparing for this competition since the middle of January. Although very nervous the team performed fantastically and were thrilled to be awarded first place in their division.
“The judges were very impressed with the team’s performances and awarded them full marks for the difficulty of their jumps and 9.5 out of 10 for their dancing. This is a testament to the hard work they have put in so far this year and the progress they have made in the last 12 months.”
After winning their division, the team has now qualified to compete in the Legacy Cheer and Dance ‘Nationals’ which will be held in the Copper Box in the Olympic Park on June 27.
