Cheer and Tumbling


 Vanessa N. Gardner - Cheer/Tumbling Instructor - L.U.T.A.N All Star Coach

“Never be afraid to take the Risk that leads you to happiness,” describes me in more ways than one. My love for ballet began at the age of 7 at Jordan Dance Academy and then developed into the love for cheer at the age of 12 when I made the 7th grade cheerleading squad.

The transition from ballet to cheer happened when I realized that I was not only a lover of dance but an extreme athlete that had the need and desire to take more risks, create new challenges for myself, and pursue something that was much more my personality. Choosing cheerleading just made sense!

Stemming from the first tryout, to middle school, to competitive cheer, to being nationally ranked, to founding my own company, I have always had a passion for the Roar of the crowd. To teach others: Leadership, self-esteem, discipline, and confidence from within. I let others know to never give up on their dreams and aspirations in life. I am a first time generation college graduate from Indiana University-Purdue University of Indianapolis. I have two beautiful children, (two boy's and one girl) and a wonderful and supportive husband.

I have always lived by the quote, “You only have 1 stage performance in life, you might as well Rock it and Own it!
