THE small Woodburn dance group Just Dance! Richmond Rumours Competition Cheer Squad has made a splash on the cheerleading scene this year.

They placed fourth at the Australian All Star Cheer Federation (AASCF) All Star Battle on the Gold Coast halfway through the year.

They gained a second place at the State Championships, backed up by their most recent placing of second at the Nationals.

"We had 16 performers ready to go and then one member broke an arm at school and another an ankle at home," teacher Tammy Tuck said.

"It wasn't that bad to reconfigure the routine with one member missing, but when we lost the second person it was tricky."

Ms Tuck said she was not surprised, despite the dramas, that the team came second.

"They are so profession- al," she said. "The kids just pulled it all together."

Ms Tuck started the cheer squad classes back in 2012 and is surprised at the growth and interest in the sport.

"We did a workshop to see the interest level and it's now grown from 15 kids in 2012 to 39 in all classes," she said.

Members of the Just Dance! Richmond Rumours Competition Cheer Squad range from 10-16 years and include boys and girls.

The group also has Mini-Cheer (5-9 years) and Recreational Cheer classes, which will run in Woodburn and Coraki in 2015.
