All That Cheer teams headed to Nationals

(Continued)

“I’m just really excited for the kids,” said Almquist. “I’m really lucky to work with my co-coach, Sherri Blais. She is an absolutely amazing choreographer and does an amazing job. I’m just really excited to be a part of this whole process with these kids who have earned a very special place in my heart.”

For Divo, who co-coaches with Cara Wilson and whose brother, David, creates all the music for the gym and the team, it’s all in the family at All That.

“It’s all about the kids at our gym,” Divo said. “I have so much fun with them, we’re very proud. It’s taken us a long time to get to this point.”

Both teams will join the best teams in the country and will compete at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex in Kissimmee for The Summit, which will be televised as well as streamed on the Internet.

“I think we’ll place really well,” Divo said of The Summit. “But I don’t want any expectations going into it. You never really know how your product is going to relate to a judging panel, you just don’t know.”
