2012: “Golden Memories”
For this year’s routine, they used the best songs from their previous routines!
2013 & 2014: No themes
As noted before, the 2008 fashionista dance is on our list with 10 Of The Most Memorable Cheerleading Worlds Moments.
Stars 2013 routine is also on the list, because of a tumbling pass and crowd reaction you just HAVE to see!
2015: “Jersey Girls”
This theme was based on a musical called “Jersey Boys” and plays off the fact that the main World Cup Allstars gym is located in New Jersey.
The musical not only inspired the team’s music but also the use of props.
During the tumbling section, one of the athletes put on a red jacket, like the ones used in the musical.
Fun fact: the jacket was only used on Day 1 of Worlds, and removed for their Day 2 performance… Want to know why?
Hear all about it from the center flyer herself, Lauren Preston, in this video:
2015 was also another Worlds-winning year for the team!
2016: “Lady Gaga”
The use of the banner at the beginning made many jaws drop to the floor!
2017: “Dancing with the Stars”
Based on, you guessed it, the TV show with the same name.
The routine also brought home their 5th Worlds win in the division!
The comeback of the red jacket!
Although a different jacket was used this year, the moment was just as memorable.
This time, it was also featured in another way. Instead of an athlete wearing it in the background like in 2015, it was used by the center flyer in the second stunt.
2019: Wonder Woman/Superhero
The routine that gave Stars their 6th Worlds gold in the large senior division!
2020: New York City
Another very unique moment was included in this routine – the “happy new year” part (symbolizing the New Year’s Eve ball drop at Times Square in New York).
2021: World Tour
Featuring many references to different parts of the world, tourist destinations, and different countries!
The latest theme featured Hollywood-inspired music and choreography!
