STARS YOUTH CENTER, ABOVE THE RESTThe Forum

If you walked by the STARS Youth Center on Thursday, July 27 through Sunday, July 30, you would have heard some loud shouts and seen some fierce hits. "What was going on?" you might ask. Well, if you guessed a Cheerleading Clinic, you are right. For these four days a professional the Cheerleading Clinic was hosted by STARS and was lead by Cheerleaders of America instructor Ticia Korleski, in order to get ready for the year ahead of them.
These girls learned some great cheers, sideline chants, dance routines, partner stunts and, pyramids. But before all that, they had to go over some of the basics, strong motions, and techniques - "hands on hips, smiles on lips, spirit in your heart, let's start!" On the top of the list of lessons learned was listening to your instructor and your peers while working together as a team can lead to performing even the most difficult of tasks.
Four long days of sweat, hard work and lots of fun, only confirmed what these cheerleaders already knew, "STARS, we are the best...STARS, above the rest!"
S.T.A.R.S. will again offer cheerleading classes in September, and you can see the cheerleaders perform at community events in the area. For more information on the enrollment in cheerleading classes or many other programs offered at STARS throughout the year, call (718) 845-6956.
