Cheer, a heartfelt coming-of-age docuseries that unveils the athleticism, fearlessness and sheer grit of competitive cheerleaders. Filmed during the lead-up to the National Cheerleading Championship at Daytona Beach, Florida, we’re with the Navarro College Cheer Team every step, twirl and tumble of the way as they push themselves to their physical and emotional limits to win the admiration of their coach, Monica Aldama.
