HOLLA'! Cheer and Dance Magazine™ kicked off its Summer Empowerment series with special guest Carlos Barrett. As a Winston-Salem State University Powerhouse of the Red and White cheer alumni, Barrett (pictured) discussed the transition to HBCU stomp-n-shake cheer. The series interview is available on IGTV @hollacheeranddancemagazine. Check out the series' guest line up and schedule below:
As several states are allowing re-openings of gyms and studios despite the increased cases of COVID-19, HOLLA'! Cheer and Dance Magazine™ is encouraging program owners to remain vigilent. According to reputable news reports, COVID-19 continues to increase throughout the country. It must be stated that certain cheer and dance elements that are contrary to social distancing protocal are being implemented by many programs.
In addition, due to the various amounts of misinformation being circulated, young people under the age of 18 may perhaps be less likely to be infected, this should not give license for exposure to any risk.
With the recent re-closure of Cheer Athlete's facility in Plano, TX, the responsibility of the owners to share their errors via video, is an eye opener to other gym owners regarding the protocal for their programs. Read more HERE regarding Cheer Athletic's closure.
Meanwhile, please continue to be safe and make every effort to stay well.
