Cheerleading and Dance

 Hi Bears!! We are a highly successful sports team that competes in cheerleading and dance competitions all over the country and throughout the year. We are lucky enough to be current reigning national champions for both our stunt teams.  

All are welcome to come and try out even if you have never done any cheerleading or dance before! 

With a Level 2 Team, Level 1 Team, two Stunt Teams , a Performance Team  plus a jazz and a hiphop team it is a sport for everyone regardless of size, age or gender or experience !! 

If you do not want to compete, we also have our Performance Team, who can often be seen cheering and supporting Royal Holloway's Sports Teams on matchdays. These appearances are like mini-socials, and are a great way to meet and network with others from across campus.

We train hard, but have fun in the process and thats what makes it so great to be a #rhulbear

Training Times

Our training times vary depending on the team you are part of. Training is in the afternoons/evenings or at the weekend so will not clash with university lectures. If training is not on campus, transport is arranged to ensure every member can attend. We use the facilities in our local community and have the fortune of training on a sprung floor at a local club.

We really hope you 'give it a go' and come and try something new! Cheer and Dance is hard work- harder than people think. We can promise you that you will fall in love with it just like we have and cannot wait for you to join our Cheer and Dance family.
