About Us




We are Apex Cheer.

Apex Cheer and Dance are a brand new cheerleading and dance team based in the North West, in Stockport (Greater Manchester), Northwich and Crewe & Nantwich (Cheshire) Our coaches are qualified with the UKCA (UK Cheerleading Association) as well as having strong backgrounds in dance, gymnastics and sports coaching.



Cheerleading ranges from chanting, to intense physical activity for sports team motivation, audience entertainment, or competition based upon organized routines. Competitive routines typically range anywhere from one to three minutes, and contain components of tumbling, dance, jumps, cheers, and stunting.



Pom Dance is an energetic fusion of dance and cheer, using cheer motions with turns, rolls, jumps and leaps. Through rehearsals you will learn technique, tricks, choreography as well as working on your flexibility. Perfect for beginners, dancers, gymnasts and cheerleaders alike.




Our coaches have trained extensively with the UKCA and beyond.
