WATCH: We Tried Cheerleading with the Altas Perpsquad

Every UAAP and NCAA Cheer Dance Competition, netizens go wild on social media with their honest opinions on each performance and giving shoutouts to their favorite teams. Sometimes, though, they become so real that they tend to joke around and create memes of them. Even I am guilty of it.

Joking aside, I’m sure we all don’t mean to offend or attack performers personally because we know that every athlete who participates in these competitions has worked hard and has given their all when it comes to their routines!

If you have no idea how difficult it can be to execute their buwis-buhay stunts, watch this video where I tried to train as a cheerleader for a day with one of the top pep squads in the Philippines, the UPHD Altas Perpsquad:

The UPHD Altas Perpsquad is also the champion of SEA GAMES 2019’s Dance As One Cheer Dance Competition. Congratulations! Also, congratulations to this season’s UAAP Cheer Dance Competition champions, the NU Pep Squad!
