LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- All-star cheer and dance teams representing eight states are competing this weekend in Louisville at the Triple Crown Showdown of cheerleading.
More than 6,000 cheerleaders as young as 4 years old will participate at the fairgrounds.
Teams will try to qualify for the World Championship and the Summit cheerleading events, the two largest cheerleading competitions in the country.
On Saturday, the Jabbawockeez dance crew, which was the first dance team to headline a Las Vegas show, will put on a master-level class. The group will perform during the dance award ceremonies at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. EST Sunday.
The event will be centered in Freedom Hall. Public admission is available, but only cash is accepted for tickets.
Competition starts at 8 a.m. both days.
