Interested in Camps and Competitons? Find a Camp Find a Competition.We went to several tribute band concerts and they were awesome. The bandshell has seating to Was great walk along the beach arfea with lots of interesting thing and people to see. There were It's always fun to watch the daughter compete at the Daytona Beach Bandshell. This place is an icon along the boardwalk and I know that all of the kids love it! But after four years of going back I am still disappointed that they still use the old wooden bleachers.
These are really outdated, the need newer higher angle seating that will provide more room for spectators, hopefully whoever is responsible for this will put some insight into this in the future.
A very nice outdoor venue for the cheerleading competition. Seating is good, and the area is clean and accessible. It would be nice if there were more bathrooms, other than porta-johns. A group of friends had finished eating at Sloppy Joe's, located on the 2nd floor of the Bandshell Shoppes. We all walked outside so see the ocean and get an up close view of the Bandshell.
This bandshell has been here in Daytona Beach for a long time. All kinds of shows have been produced here over the years. For the last number of years,the summer months have been filled with high quality " tribute " bands. The bandshell fills up quickly. Better bring a folding bag chair or you can rent a plastic chair.
No alcohol as this is a City building. Have a good time. Oh, and you can park across the street in a parking deck. This bandshell is very nice. Located right on the beach and surrounded by nice restaurants. Fun thing to do during a beach vacation! Fun time watching tribute bands. Arrive early if you plan to eat as the restaurants on the boardwalk get crowded with a long wait.
Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to enjoy a performance here but seeing it from further down on the boardwalk I couldn't help getting a closer look. The bandshell itself is beautifully located on a square that ties in architecturally with the bandshell. The building's architecture reminded me of the sand castles that I'm sure pop up all along the beach in the warmer bathing season.
Don't miss the nearby clock tower which is designed in a similar style. This beautiful bandshell is a perfect compliment to the Daytona Beach boardwalk, check schedules beforehand and you might be lucky enough to witness a performance there!There's some sad news for all you Cheer fans out there. The competition the Navarro athletes work all year to preform at — the NCA National Championships in Daytona Beach, Florida — is officially not happening this year due to coronavirus concerns.
If that's not bad enough, the Cheer s tars' Instagrams about NCA Nationals being canceled will bring fans' heartbreak to a new level.
Cheerwhich debuted on Netflix in earlyfollowed the Navarro College cheerleading team in their quest to earn another national title at the NCA National Championships. Because of the show's overwhelming success, many viewers were hopeful a Season 2 would be created for the cheerleading seasonfollowing Navarro yet again for another season. There is still no official word from Netflix whether a second season of the docuseries was ever picked up, but regardless, any hopes fans had of watching Navarro compete at the championships have now been squashed.
On March 15, Varsity Spirit, the company that hosts the competition, announced the decision "to not proceed as planned with scheduled events for at least the next eight weeks of the competition season" on its website. In response, members of the Navarro team took to Instagram to vocalize their disappointment about losing their chance at another national title. After learning of the cancellation, Gabi Butler posted a photo from a Navarro practice, with the caption: "This is not a goodbye However, since was her third season on the team, it's likely she's no longer eligible to compete with Navarro moving forward.
Another fan-favorite, La'Darius Marshall, posted a video — one that actually went viral before Cheer even came out — with a lengthy caption. Although he wrote "see you later" in the post, he also suggested his cheerleading career was over. As with Gabi, marked La'Darius' third and likely final season to compete with Navarro.
Shannon Woolsey, another Navarro squad member, explained she had "uncontrollable tears" running down her face as she posted about the news. While this marks an unfortunate ending for some of the Navarro cheer team members, the cancellation is in accordance with the CDC's recommended guidelines to cancel or postpone events with 50 or more peoplewhich was announced on March For more Cheer content, fans can rewatch Season 1 of Cheer on Netflix now. It could be the perfect content to take in while you practice social distancing.

Mar 26, Varsity TV.I finished um, binged Netflix's popular docu-series Cheer a week and a half ago, and my heart still hasn't stopped pounding from the finale. As you might recall, the stakes couldn't have been higher: the Navarro College cheer team had just spent months suffering through injuries, nonstop practice, and intense pressure to succeed, again, at the cheerleading national championships.
As they ran onto the mat in Daytona, FL, and sprang into their routine, all that build-up came to a soaring climax — and then to a crashing, stomach-dropping halt.
During a mid-routine tumbling pass, Navarro cheerleader Austin Bayles landed awkwardly, grabbing his ankle in pain and hobbling to the corner of the mat. Seconds later, the music cut out and the team rushed off the stage. Then, it was straight to crisis mode. Navarro would get the chance to finish their performance with an alternate team member, Alex Bouhuys, but they had just 30 minutes to rework the routine.
If you'd thought it impossible to put more pressure on this team, you were wrong. Head coach Monica Aldama said her first reaction was disbelief. On the mat, her athletes were at a loss.
I was so confused. Can he make it through the pyramid? I was in shock. Then, "I totally went into focus mode," Monica said. We've got this. Jerry Harris, a fan-favorite stunter from the show, said he strove to keep his cool for his teammates. I didn't really show that much emotion wise. He never got to practice being in that spot, except for that small time that we had. And of course he was really nervous.
We were dead silent the whole time. Navarro took the stage again and, in a testament to their grit, talent, and determination, pulled off the performance flawlessly. When they were finally crowned champions, "it was amazing," Monica said. It was every emotion you can think of wrapped into one.
The 'Cheer' Stars' Instagrams About NCA Nationals Being Canceled Are So Sad
For Lexi, the win brought a level of joy she'd never experienced. I've never really won a big title like that in my entire career," she said. Navarro lifted the trophy and splashed into the Daytona waves, apparently sealing their fairy tale ending, but the story wasn't quite over.
It wasn't until after the series aired in early January that we learned that many of the major cast members would be returning to Navarro for another season, including Morgan and Jerry, who had both considered other schoolsand Lexi, who rejoined the team after a "second chance" from Monica.
Now it seems there are only two questions left: will Navarro defend their national title in ? And will there be a second season of Cheer so we can watch them do it? We'll just have to wait to find out.
If you need us in the meantime, we'll be here watching all of the mesmerizing Navarro routines we can find. Image Source: Netflix. Watch This!As the reason for its move, Varsity Spirit cited the recent recommendation of the U.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that events with 50 or more people be postponed or canceled for now. Cheerleading Worlds will also not proceed as planned. Members of the Navarro College cheer team, which has won 14 national championships under the leadership of coach Monica Aldama, turned to social media to express their disappointment over the news. I love everyone The end of my cheerleading career has come a bit early. For everyone who supported me all this way I want to say thank you and I love you.
Long live the bright light we all shared together and the countless fullouts we have done to get ready for this competition. I love you forever!!!! Gabi Butler, who was also featured in the Netflix series, likewise shared her sadness about the cancellation.
