Watch Cheer Perfection
- 2 Seasons
Cheer Perfection is a reality television series that follows a cheerleading team from Arkansas. The cheerleaders are all young and they cheer for Cheer Time Revolution. They do not cheer for a school but rather do so competitively, heading to various events across the country. Alisha Dunlap is the owner of Cheer Time Revolution and she is also the team's head coach. She is a rigorous taskmaster and the girls are under a lot of pressure to perform. The girls are also under a lot of pressure from their parents to perform well. The series goes back and forth from the studio to the individual girls' home lives. Ann is one of the cheerleading stage parents who puts a lot of pressure on her daughter to success. When her daughter fails to qualify for an important competition in Chicago, Ann is furious and berates her openly. Ann also decides to no longer help at practice. Ann also has no boundaries when it comes to her daughter. When Toriann, her child, is doing poorly at practice one day, Ann tells everyone she is constipated in order to explain away her bad performance. Toriann is embarrassed and actually hits her mother in front of everybody. Ann is not the only mother whose behavior is out of line. Two mothers even get into a fight at one of the practice sessions, with one of them vowing to catch the other at Walmart and beat her up. Tragedy strikes when a cheerleader is injured and her mother is more concerned with her missing events than the actual pain she is going through. Coach Alisha is forced to punish the moms as well as the daughters sometimes. She is so disgusted with one mother's behavior that she makes her run laps at practice. The cheerleaders work on their cheerleading skills as if it was a full-time job. They train year-round with competition season lasting from October to April. The girls have to do more than just focus on cheerleading. They also need to raise money to be able to travel to various competitions and they do so by hosting team bake sales and fundraisers.
