Cheers all round for Tenerife Tigers
The 17-strong squad, from Callao Salvaje’s performing arts school Let’s Dance, were up against 22 teams from all over England and Wales and the girls – aged 10-16 – who displayed exceptional form, were:
Ebony Zenou Phillips, Savannah Bird, Elise Sawyer, Lydia Saunders, Jordan-Louise Lydon, Luna Kennedy, Leah Burt, Harley Berry, Kotryna Usevičiūtė, Charlie Whitehouse, Charlotte Mcardle, Millie Stewart, Shawni McColgan, Nuria Molins Larripa, Elizabeth Ledesma Laker, Giada Bertocco and Captain Ellie Gipps.
Elle McDowall was unable to perform but she still came to support the team!
The girls won the Senior Lyrical, Junior Jazz Duo, Junior Stunt Group Level 1 and Senior Stunt Group Level 2. They finished also second in the Senior Pom and Junior Jazz Solo and third in the Senior Cheer Dance Level 2.
They were accompanied to the 19th May event by coaches Katie and Zoe, along with coach mentor Tez Shackleton and Principal Amanda Lambert, who said: “We are all thrilled with the results and we thank everyone who has supported us on this journey.”
The Cheerleading team, under the watchful eye of their experienced coaches, train regularly at the Let’s Dance studios and at Las Torres Sports Pavilion in Adeje.
Overall, there are some 70 girls in the Tenerife Tigers (or the Tigres, as they are also known), who are divided into four groups: Minis, Youths, Seniors and Elites.
Amanda added: “We will be having a Cheer workshop in the summer and if you would like to join the squad, please call 636 628 126 or 618 626 821.”
Team captain Ellie said: “We had a brilliant time and we could not believe how successful we were. But we trained so hard in the weeks building up to the competition and got our reward.
“Being the only overseas squad there made it even more special for us.”
She added: “Don’t forget that although we’re seen as an all-girl group, boys are always welcome to join Tenerife Tigers.”
