Everyone is familiar with cheerleaders, the infamous "pom-pom girls". This journey takes us to the heart of the cheerleader myth, providing an insight into all aspects of America.
Scenes from American films and television series invariably come flooding back at the mere mention of the word cheerleaders, with young, attractive, smiling girls, in brightly coloured costumes jigging around on the side of the field, shouting support for their team. Cheerleaders are the incarnation of the America of tranquil high schools and suburbs. They are an object of fantasy par excellence, a jubilant youth that can be interpreted and reclaimed in endless ways.
