Hip Hop Bounce claims Grand Champion banner

Hip Hop Bounce returned from two recent dance and cheer championships in Adelaide with brilliant results.

The group had great performances at the Australian All Star Cheerleading Federation State Championships and the Aussie Gold State Spectacular.

At the cheerleading state championships, where thousands of athletes were competing, Hip Hop Bounce's Senior Level 3 Cheer Team "Bounce Bling" taking out Grand Champion of level three small gyms - their first ever.

They also gained a pinnacle bid to the exclusive Australasian Cheer and Dance Pinnacle in Melbourne on Monday, December 2.

This team also saw the group finish first in the small gym level three top tier (the top three ranking of gyms/clubs in each level).

Hip Hop Bounce also had their Open Pom Team, coached by Emily Turvey, take out second place in their division and third overall highest pom score of the competition.

This was a massive achievement and the first dance royalty banner for the group.

This means that Hip Hop Bounce is the only school/gym in the state to finish in the top three for both cheer and dance (top tier gym for cheer and dance royalty for dance).

Hip Hop Bounce director, Natasha English-McCulloch, said they were extremely proud of all the competitors, no matter where they placed.

"We are now looking forward to Cheercon (state level competition) in November, Australian All Star Cheerleading Federation Nationals in November and Pinnacle in December," she said.
