SHOULD I TRYOUT FOR CHEER OR DANCE?!?

Ok info about me: I’m around 5’3, around 134 lbs, I’m 16, and I’m gonna be a junior. I have never done cheer before! I was on poms dance team for 2 years, did acro dance and hip hop and ballet (when I was younger), and I’m pretty flexible. The only tumbling I can do is cartwheel, handstand, side splits, and round off. I’m okay at turns, leaps, jumps, kicks, etc. from dance. I’m not super athletic; I do recreational boxing and equestrian (horse back riding). Anyway, I’m switching high schools this fall, and I really want to join something to make friends. Should I tryout for cheer or dance? I really wanna do cheer, but I’m worried about the fact I have ZERO experience with stunts and stuff. I plan to take dance and tumbling classes this summer, but is that enough...? Help!

    Can you do both? I would take the tumbling classes and see how you feel after that. It’s always fun to try something new!

    If you can fit it in your busy schedule you certainly seem qualified.

    Try out, it's not going to hurt anything to try. I have found that the biggest regrets don't come from trying and failing, but from not trying in the first place. I tried out a few times and never made it, but I didn't have the background that you do, if you remember your skills.

    Do whichever you want. Or both?

    It has to be your own choice.
