Uniting fun and Fitness with acrobatics & Flipping

Discover the perfect balance of fun and skill-building with our top-notch Cheer and Tumble classes. We offer a variety of classes that cater to all skill levels, from beginners mastering basic skills to advanced tumbling techniques that push boundaries.

Cheer Force Arkansas

Cheer Force Arkansas is one of Arkansas’s most prestigious and successful All Star programs. Unlike traditional cheerleading, All Star cheerleading athletes do not cheer for a team; they are the team.

At Cheer Force Arkansas, squad is another word for family! Every year, we welcome aspiring All-Star cheerleaders into our hearts and award-winning routines. Our All Star Cheerleading program trains cheerleaders to compete at the highest possible level, according to the skill and ability of each squad. We hold our squads to a high standard regarding respect, integrity, character, and attitude, striving for excellence in all we do.

Sparklers Cheer

Our Sparklers recreational cheer classes are for those who would like to learn fundamental cheerleading skills without the commitment of an all-star squad. These classes teach various cheerleading skills, including motions, jumps, stunts, tumbling, and dance. Sparklers cheer classes will perform an exhibition at the Cheer Force Arkansas Showcase in November and May.

Because we perform as a group, we wear matching t-shirts and bows.

Stellar Tumbling

Our Stellar Tumbling program offers co-ed classes for tumble and flip-a-holics, from ages 4 to 18+. This unique program includes a specific system of skill progressions and strength-based goals that help athletes advance.

Stellar Tumbling classes progress through our 5-level program, from beginner to advanced. We require prerequisites and proper progressions for advancing to each level.

Choreography, Clinics, & Camps

Our coaching staff has tons of experience choreographing entertaining and creative routines for All-Star, school, and recreational squads. Our tumbling specialists, stunt specialists, and experienced choreographers can also assist your team with any skill area through summer camps or 1-day clinics for your School or Pee Wee squads.
