Jan. 25, 2012

LAWRENCE, Kan. – The Jayhawk Sprit Squad and Dance Teams will be holding six Cheer Skills and Dance Clinics in the coming months, announced by Catherine “Cat” Jarzemkoski, University of Kansas Spirit Squad Coordinator. The cheer and dance clinics are targeted toward high school-aged participants, but are open to all ages. The clinic is taught by the KU Cheerleaders, Rock Chalk Dancers and coaches.

KU Cheer Skills Clinics

The cheer clinics focus mainly on co-ed stunting – but may also focus on all-girl as well if entire stunt groups are available – some standing and pass tumbling, as well as some tips for preparing for college tryouts. The cost for each four-hour clinic is 50 dollars per participant.

Saturday, Jan. 28, 12:30-4:30 p.m. in the Horejsi Family Athletic Center (just southwest of Allen Fieldhouse at 1550 Allen Fieldhouse Drive, 66045).
