Our buddy Rob Ellery came to town to do some cheer choreography work for a team's traditional competition routine and their game day routine for UCA.

Ep.4 - Leighton and Sandy (Clarke Specialties)

Episode Notes

Episode 4 is all about cheerleading music: songs, mixes, nuances, plus some cheer nerd stuff too.

We were fortunate enough to get to sit down with the duo behind Clarke Specialties (ClarkeSpecialties.com), one of the top cheer music production companies in the industry, Leighton and Sandy Clarke. Together they've coached and competed at almost nearly every level, bringing so much knowledge to their teams and their business. Currently, they are the All Girl Cheer Coaches at USF (University of South Florida).

Episode Notes

Episode 5 is HERE! Talking cheerleading memes and cheer TikToks, Game Day traditions (like Indiana's William Tell aka the Greatest Timeout in College Basketball), and of course discussed competition with Kelly being that she has won at nearly every level of cheerleading possible. A true blessing to have her in town to visit and on the show talking about her cheer experiences. Sit back and enjoy another episode of the Mark Thru Cheer Podcast.
