While I could hardly remember any performances in 2011, 2012 has been a year full of just that. We’ve been invited here and there to do our stuff, sometimes stunts and other times, embarrassingly enough, just cheering with pom poms. Yea the traditional cheerleader way -__-
So today I have quite a number of pictures from our latest performance, the Singapore National Games, Opening Ceremony, held at the Punggol Waterway Park on 1 September 2012. These are friendly community games between members of different constituencies in Singapore , though I don’t quite know what they compete in. It was very crowded though! Wow looks like everybody is so supportive! ( either that or free food and t-shirts did the trick )
Okay perhaps calling this a performance is a little misleading. Firstly, we didn’t have much to do as we were obviously not meant to be the highlight. Secondly, I think there was some miscommunication between the organizers and the emcees….they forgot we were supposed to perform! We were exhausted because we experienced so many false starts, like we prepare for performance assuming they will announce our names like any moment and then…. anti-climax. it was so annoying, we started laughing after some time. Being ignored is one thing but being ignored while you’re wearing bling bling costumes and attracting so much attention from onlookers expecting something from you…. awkward. Not to mention kids running through our formation while we’re trying to concentrate on timing. So what we did in the end were segments of our performance and the usual stunts after performance ( or rather the lack of one ) to just you know, excite the crowd. Even a toss to hands is considered amazing to a man on the street, even it may be the basic for cheerleaders. Haha so yes, if ever you needed attention, just do a toss to hands in the middle of a crowded place, ‘confirm plus chop’ you will have an audience. Double Confirm.
We were actually contacted to perform for both the opening and closing ceremonies but as it turned out, it rained during the closing ceremony making it unsafe for stunts…. So yea cheers with pom poms it was. We have like one pathetic picture taken during the closing ceremony, you’ll see that towards the end.
So that’s what we have for the Singapore National Games, do check out our facebook page for the rest of the pictures! On that note, all our pictures are actually uploaded to our Denvers Cheerleading Team facebook page (you can see it on the right side of the blog page) so do go have a look and like our page for new updates and pictures! 🙂
