How to Clap with open palms and clasped hands in cheerleading
Give a round of applause for Coach Lauren and the A-TV cheerleaders! Learn how to properly clap with your open palms and clasped hands. Follow along with this cheerleading how-to video to learn basic cheers and open and clasped hand clapping techniques.
1. An open palm clap is when you have your palms flat and fingers glued together. This is also called the blades position.
2. To do a clasped palm clap, clap your hands and clasp them together. Closing them makes a quieter sound.
3. Open palms Cheer: PUSH EM BACK, PUSH EM BACK, WAAAAY BACK! Clap at the beginning of "push". When you say "push em" put your hands by your side so you're stiff as a board. On "way back" bend your knees, lean back, and clap as you lean forward again.
4. G! G-O! COME ON BLUE LET'S GO! During G, G-O you will clap 4 times total. Clap once on G, and clap again. Then, clap 2 times on G-O. Clap 2 times during "Come on blue." On "Let's" put your left hand on your hip, and when you say "Go!" do a "punch" by punching your right arm straight up in the air.
