PHOENIX - We spotted some fast-tempo, extremely enthusiastic girls working on their cheers at Arizona Fusion Cheer and Dance.
The expectations there are high with a national champion banner and pictures that hang on the wall. As well as some demanding practices.
"Have we done this perfect before," their coached asked. "Yes. And do I expect it to be perfect every time we do it? Yes."
But the hard work is paying off. These girls between 6 and 9 years old are disciplined and well conditioned.
"We're really sharpening and we're gonna win this whole Nationals thing!" Sarah told us. "What I like about [cheer] is that I love to base. I love stunts."
And that's what their routine is filled with. Lifts, flips, kicks and pyramids.
