Cheering for Makos

posted in: Media | 0

Think you have the moves to make it is a cheerleader? Then the Tasman Makos would like to hear from you.

After a couple of years absence, the Makos are looking to bring back the Makos cheerleaders, under the guidance of Peta Spooner, who runs her own dance academy and the Wakatu Dance Theatre.

Makos commercial manager Butch Bradley said they had received a lot of support for the idea.

“We used to have a good squad, but had to stop them due to lack of funds.

“Now Shooters and Devine Fitness are keen to sponsor a squad and Peta Spooner has put her hand up to train the dancers, so now all we need is cheerleaders.”

Spooner is also an examiner for the International Dance Teachers Association and is qualified to teach a variety of styles from ballet to modern jazz and freestyle.

“We needed someone to co-ordinate the squad who has the skills to train the dancers,” Bradley said.

“We are just over the moon that someone with Peta’s experience and credibility is prepared to help us out.”

Prospective cheerleaders must be over 18 years of age, and should contact Spooner on 0272421442 for an audition.
