What is cheerdance? Is coined from the words, Cheer and Dance .

Dance , on the other hand, is a physical activity where one expresses emotions or gestures while performing bodily movements usually in time with rythm.

Cheerdancing rooted from cheerleading – performance of a routine, usually dominated by gymnastic skills, lifts and tosses combined with shouting of cheers and yells to lead the crowd to cheer for a certain team during a game or sport.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
