Spirit Revolution Allstars Ribbon Cutting

NEWTON, N.C. (Aug. 17, 2016)—A talented group of children and teenagers are learning to be all-star cheerleaders and dancers at a new business in Newton.

Spirit Revolution Allstars ribbon cuttingNewton welcomed Spirit Revolution Allstars Cheerleading & Dance to the city during a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, Aug. 17. The new business is located at 17 North Bost Ave.

Although Spirit Revolution Allstars is new to Newton, the competitive cheerleading and dance group has been around for seven years.

Owner and head coach Allison Grant has more than a decade of experience in competitive cheerleading. Since moving her business to Newton this summer, Grant said the number of cheerleaders and dancers on Spirit Revolution Allstars’ teams has more than doubled. Most of the children who participate in the program live in Newton and the surrounding area, so setting up a facility in Newton made sense for them, Grant said.

Spirit Revolution Allstars has teams for cheer, hip-hop and special needs. The special needs team is the first such team in the county to partner with Special Olympics. Participants include boys and girls ages 3 to 18. Seven coaches provide training at Spirit Revolution Allstars, and their teams are back-to-back Fever Productions national champions.

Grant said she is especially grateful to the businesses and organizations that sponsor Spirit Revolution Allstars.

“I’m happy to welcome you to Newton,” Mayor Anne P. Stedman said before the ribbon cutting. “I hope you continue to see your business grow here.”
