We've almost made it through 2021! 💛

Hey Fam, we're almost at the end of another crazy year. We're feeling confident that 2022 will be a full and amazing year and we look forward to sharing more special moments in particular at competitions and events during the year. But before we finish off 2021 we still have lots to get through! Read through our last blog for the year to find out what's happening.

What's coming up?

SHOWOFFS EVENT: Sunday 12 December! 🌟

We are so excited to finish off this challenging year with our in-gym Showoffs. We love Showoffs, as unlike competitions, we get to all be together in the gym with our families to support our athletes and everything is up so close and personal! We also get to see so many routines from our amazing teams. For these showoffs, our athletes will be wearing their cheer uniforms and costumes which we are super pumped for as our photos will look amazing! An Event Program has been released with details including times for athletes to meet for warm up, performance times and other useful information. This event is free for family and friends to attend but you’ll need to register: Click here for tickets

2022 Team Placements ✨ We have started the assessment process for athletes and will continue throughout December. This is where we assess each athlete's suitability for teams based on current tumble level mastery, other skills, attitude and commitment. Everyone will always make a team! Emails will be sent late December with your team placement for 2022! We are so excited for a full season next year and what is looking to be a huge 25 teams to kick off 2022!


Planning for 2022

Competition Dates for 2022 🐝

Just a heads up for anyone planning to book holidays for next year. We have updated our Calendar with Competition & Events dates for 2022. Check out our Calendar here

Athlete Packs

Our Athlete Packs will be sent out with your Team Placements emails. They will contain everything you need to know about your training, competitions, key dates, timetables for training, Choreography week and Full Out week. Yes, there is A LOT of information in there. But we find this is the best way to ensure nothing unexpected is sprung on our families throughout the year.

We believe failing to plan is planning to fail. So we always do our best to pre-plan and organise absolutely everything that you will need to know or do for the year ahead. Please ensure you thoroughly read through the entire document and then keep it in a handy place to refer back to often throughout the year.

New Dance Directors

As you may already know, we say farewell to our amazingly talented Dance Director Stephanie Westbrook at the end of 2021. Steph has been with us since we started back in 2012 as an athlete and then Dance coach. She has been an asset to Shire Elite, producing outstanding routines and building a fantastic culture in our dance program. We wish Steph all the best in the future and look forward to hearing about her next adventures. 💕

We are so excited to announce that Kelly O'Connor and Liz Penfold will be our new Dance Directors! These ladies have been with our dance program for the past few years but what you may not know is that they come with an extensive history of teaching dance and performance experience.

Kelly has been a dancer since her teens and opened her own dance studio after gaining her teaching credentials. She has also been an NRL cheerleader, dancer for MTV Music Awards and cabaret shows. Coach Liz has never been far from a dance floor, with over 30 years of experience and 15 years of teaching. Liz has experience across Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap and commercial dance genres. Liz and Kelly have worked together in the past we are so blessed to have such amazing dance coaches to take on our Dance Program!
