My Students

The CSS cheerleading and dance teams are composed of talented, dedicated, intelligent, and diverse students who travel from all over the New York City Metropolitan area to attend. Our school is a select STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) school in partnership with Columbia University. We are the only select STEM school that represents the true diverse margins of New York City.

Throughout our existence, our teams have been competing, performing, and giving back to our community.

In our first and second years, we competed and won several competitions and performed at the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. In our second year, we expanded the program and added a junior varsity team due to high demand. Both teams have not only represented the school at games but also have a tradition of performing and holding community events. The enthusiasm our team has not only for their school but also their community enjoys sharing their tradition of staying fierce and bringing the ROAR!

My Project

Our Cheerleading and Dance Team would like to participate in the East Brooklyn Competition. Both our cheerleading and dance teams have worked hard to learn and develop our skills in order to represent our school around the New York City Area! This past winter the dance team placed first and varsity cheer team came in 2nd place at one of our local competitions.

We would like to participate in this competition in order to exhibit our new skills and show what we have learned from our past experience.

Our teams would like to defend our title as being champions. We also want to use this as an opportunity for our junior varsity cheer team to be in a competition.

Exams and homework don't get to show these physical talents; therefore by participating in this competition, both teams can exhibit their artistry not seen in the classroom. In addition, by partaking in this event, each team member will be able to help develop their individual resume and future opportunities for college if they choose to go on in these sports.
