Hiya, thanks for your question!
I hope you're excited about your offer from Kingston. You can sign up to the cheerleading squad at Freshers Fair, look for girls in yellow hoodies and lots of trophies ;)
What we usually do is have a couple of taster sessions and then we start learning the dance section and practising basic stunts for tryouts. You then try out in a group of 5 and will be either placed into our Blue or Gold squad. Blue is a Level 1 squad and Gold is level 3.
Cheerleading is made up of dance, stunts, gymnastics and motions so you're a step ahead with your dance experience :)
I will warn you it's an expensive hobby, as you have to buy your competition uniform yourself but it's totally worth it. A video should be up on my profile soon of our routine this year so you can have a look at what we do.
I hope that answered your question, let me know if you would like to know anything else and good luck with your exams :)
