One of my favorite parts of the DC Cheer! project is the camaraderie that results when a new group of people work together on a creative project- especially one that involves pyramids, high kicks or other cheerful body movements!
If you want to get a feeler for what it’s like to be on our squad, without the commitment of actually joining, come to the workshop we’re holding on February 11th at the Arlington Arts Center (In conjunction with their current exhibition ‘She Got Game‘)
here’s the info (you must register to attend):
DC Cheer! Workshop at Arlington Arts Center in conjunction with the exhibition, ‘She Got Game’
Date: Saturday, February 11, 2012
Arlington Arts Center
3550 Wilson Blvd
Arlington VA 22201
Join ‘She Got Game’ artist Kristina Bilonick in a cheer-leading workshop. You need not be an experienced cheerleader to participate! Bilonick’s ongoing DC Cheer! project deals with community participation and connection building in an effort to bring more enthusiasm for the arts to DC.
On February 11th, meet the artist at the Arlington Arts Center for a crash-course on some on some of the already established DC Cheer! cheers. Then, as a group, we will choreograph a new cheer. Bring a grey tee shirt to print your own uniform tee (does not need to be new, and can be printed inside out if there is already printing on it). The workshop will end with the group performing the cheers we learned for arts center visitors.
This workshop is free and open to the public but is limited to 15 participants. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
