IT’S week four of our cheerleading video tutorial series, and we’ve got a pretty advanced stunt this time around.

Single-base stunts are some of the most difficult in cheerleading – with only one base supporting one flyer – but the cheerleaders in our video make light work of it. In this week’s episode, they do a single base extension with a liberty and twist cradle dismount. They threw in a back walkover out of the cradle just for fun.

Sounds complicated? Well, it is. Just watch the video at our R.AGE YouTube channel (, where you can also find the last three episodes.

And as usual, don’t try this at home…

Stunt name: Single base extension with liberty and twist cradle dismount.
Level: Intermediate-advanced

Step 1:
Start with a liberty grip.


Step 2:
The base and spotter drive the flyer up. The base turns and holds the flyer’s feet at extension while the spotter holds the flyer’s ankle and the base’s wrist.


Step 3:
The base and spotter lower the flyer to shoulder level, and push her up again while holding only her right leg. The flyer lifts her left leg to perform a liberty heel stretch.


Step 4:
As the flyer dismounts, she twists her body mid-air until she makes a full rotation. She then assumes a cradle position and is caught by the base and spotter.

Step 5:
The base and spotter lowers the flyer while she does a back walkover out of the stunt.
