The Studio All-Stars competitive cheerleading program at The Studio for Cheer, Dance & Tumbling has completed the 11th year of competition. Each year Studio All-Stars teams compete in 7-12 regional and national competitions.
This year the Studio All-Stars program was comprised of two teams: Youth Fierce (ages 11 & under) and Senior Elite (ages 10-18). Studio All-Stars teams include cheerleaders from Champaign, Clark and Miami counties and span the school districts of Urbana, Graham, Mechanicsburg, Triad, West Liberty-Salem, Northeastern, Northwestern and Miami East.
The 2016-2017 Studio All-Stars finished their season with 10 first place finishes, four National Champion Titles, six Grand Champion titles, and several specialty awards including Most Entertaining and Best Choreography.
In addition to these awards Studio All-Stars competed at several National Championship Events.
