Legacy Cheer and Dance is delighted to be an Official Bid Provider for the
2024 Cheerleading Worlds
and 2024 Dance Worlds
The Cheerleading Worlds and Dance Worlds
At-Large and Partial Paid Bids will be available at our Live Your Legacy International Championships in June 2023. IASF is currently reviewing protocol for the number and types of bids each EP from the UK can offer, part of which depends on the number of cheer and dance teams at a given event in the previous year. We anticipate having more detailed information about what that will look like later in 2022 and will update that information here as we have it.
When are The Cheerleading Worlds?
The Cheerleading Worlds 2024 is scheduled for 26-29 April 2024 in Orlando, Florida.
Legacy Cheer and Dance bids awarded in our 2023 season are intended for teams to compete at these international events in the 2024 season. This allows teams time to prepare for international travel.
Where does The Cheerleading and Dance Worlds take place?
The Cheerleading Worlds and The Dance Worlds are held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex and surrounding locations at Disney World, Orlando, Florida, USA.
Who is eligible to earn a bid?
Cheer and Dance teams at Worlds level will be eligible for bids. IASF will provide additional information soon, which we will update here.
How many bids will Legacy Cheer and Dance be giving?
The IASF has notified us that they are currently reviewing the number of bids allocated to Event Producers. The number of bids awarded is generally based on the number of registered cheer and dance teams at an event the previous year. We anticipate further updates on this specific topic later in 2022, and we will publish those updates here when we have them.
A Note From Legacy Cheer and Dance About Bids:
At Legacy Cheer and Dance, we believe that every competition experience should be a positive, personalized experience that adds overall value to the lives of our athletes, coaches, families, and supporters. That’s true for each of our events in the UK, and it also holds true for when we open opportunities for our teams to compete in America.
If attending any event abroad (including bid events that we are sharing here) is a hardship that an athlete, family, or gym is not yet ready to take on, we highly encourage you to PAUSE on travel. This allows you to recover or build financial resources as well as take time to grow your skills whilst competing in the UK.
We feel this is ethically critical for us as the bid provider to note this perspective because there is a great deal of social pressure to travel to events abroad, especially destination events like Florida. However, even with paid bids, there is still a significant financial investment involved in competing abroad.
Our goal in providing bids is to support teams who are truly ready to go in terms of skills and financial preparedness so that we don’t lose families and athletes from our sport when they can’t afford to continue. The bid event trips are truly wonderful, and they certainly have a place in the positive international development of our sport, but it also relies on families, athletes, and gyms to define when they’re ready and when the process will serve them rather than drain them.
Please know that we support ALL of our teams, so let’s work together to celebrate all teams, travel or not.
