All you cheerleaders out there know that music is one of the most crucial elements of your routine. Maybe an upbeat soundtrack like the "Gangnam Style" by the Korean singer-rapper Psy could have the whole crowd singing and tapping to the beat.
Music, as you all know, can make or break the act. The basket toss, the pyramid, the running tumbling and the closing dance, all could be just perfect, only if the music is finely tuned to encourage the players to outperform and make it a memorable event. So good music is like adding glitter to your cheerleading performance, it will bring out and put attention on the right moves. While choosing cheerleading songs, make sure that the music is upbeat with remixes of high-energy bangers. This way, the audience too will be jumping off their seats while you do your tumble, back flips, round flip flops, and full layout twists. Make sure that the music brings out all the cheer shouts and chants. So pick your remixes wisely.

While picking cheer music, make sure that you make the most of all the beats and lyrics. Certain music can really add zing to your moves. For example, while making the pyramid, you can use "The Climb" or "We Got the Party (With Us)". For your final dance, you can use "So Bring It On". The key is to use the lyrics to your advantage. A slow song can be played when you are getting ready for the main act like the pyramid, and once it is done or during it you can play an upbeat song. For your jumps and tosses, choose songs with strong beats so that every time you hit the floor, a drum beat or something is heard.

If you find it difficult to find an age-appropriate song, then you can mix songs in such a way that you skip out the explicit part. You can even pick some songs from cheerleading movies like "Bring It On" and "Cheer" or from dance movies like Step Up, Honey, etc.

Remember to use the music to your advantage. Cheerleading is more than just a background act. Cheerleaders work together to execute those seamless routines and wow the audiences in less than three minutes with their technique, creativity and sharpness. A good song can enhance and bring out the act to a whole new level. So here's wishing you all the best in entertaining the crowd, and remember to smile, have fun and cheer hard!
