There is a tremendous opportunity in the cheer and dance market, we know that the team and their families will travel, and we know that they will have a great experience at our city.

AmeriCheer, Inc. was founded in 1987 by former Ohio State cheerleader Elizabeth “Liz” Rossetti as a one-person instructional cheerleading clinic. Today, AmeriCheer and its family of brands (AmeriDance, Eastern Cheer & Dance and Victory Wear) are national cheerleading and dance companies that inspire young athletes in competitive cheerleading and dance and educate through instructional camp programs.
“Bringing AmeriCheer to the Mountain State will provide an amazing opportunity for all levels of cheer and dance teams to showcase and compete,” said Rossetti. “Working with the team from the Charleston Convention & Bureau to come and the Coliseum & Convention Center will bring excellence to the champions!”
