The Jaguarettes competed at the Universal Dance Associations Regional Championships over the MLK weekend.

This past week, the Academy Jaguarettes placed at regionals and in lieu of their win, here is some insight on the preparation that the Jaguarettes go through each day of their season in order to execute their flawless performances.

On a regular game day a Jaguarette will:

Wake up at 6:00

Flat Iron hair

Pack the costume, makeup, shoes, and pre-game practice clothes for the day

Listen to the music for the dance on repeat all day

Get açai bowls with the team

Get ready and pumped by listening to great music with the team

Cheer on basketball or volleyball team

Dance like pros at half time

Freshman Mary Kelly Cardillo said, “Dancing at halftime is easily one of my favorite parts of being on the team because I get to dance with my favorite people while supporting my school.”

Cheer some more

Going home or to studio practice dead tired

Do homework and stretch

Junior Sam Cano said, “Being a Jaguarete can be tough, tiring, and time consuming… but I love it more than anything!”

Jaguarettes are the backbone of our sport teams’ cheer system and Academy is beyond grateful for all the work they do.
