Black Diamonds in Action


Welcome to Black Diamonds Cheerleading!


Black Diamonds are now recruiting new students for our 2013/2014 season and have 2 new venues in EDINBURGH & LIVINGSTON

No experience is necessary – all you need is lots of enthusiasm, be keen to learn new skills and have lots of fun!

Classes are available in Penicuik, Edinburgh & West Lothian, and are open to both males & females from the age of 5 years to adults.

Black Diamonds are working hard to promote cheerleading in Scotland and produce outstanding, talented dedicated cheerleaders and dancers who promote teamwork and team spirit.

Black Diamonds are a National Cheer and Dance squad based in Penicuik, Midlothian, just outside Edinburgh. We run recreational and competitive cheerleading classes in Midlothian, West Lothian & Edinburgh.

We specialise in All Star Cheerleading and also Pom, Cheer and Hip Hop Dance. Our Athletes and Dancers can also take classes in tumbling (gymnastics) and fitness.

Black Diamonds are the 1st All Star Competitive Cheer Squad in Midlothian.

We have won over 150 trophies and gained 12 National Championship Titles in just three years.

To date two of our students were selected to represent Scotland at the ICU World Championships held in Florida in 2011 where they placed 6th overall – last year we won a bid for our junior pom to represent Scotland, and this year we won 3 bids to represent Scotland at the European Cheerleading Championships We are the first from Edinburgh or Midlothian to have ever made it to the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS!


All of our classes are open to both boys and girls from the age of 5+ to Adults 18+ (younger students may be considered). Recreational classes are held that do not involve competition work. Both recreational and competitive cheerleaders and dancers have the option to perform in Gala Days, charity events, local exhibitions etc. Our classes are foremost fun and friendly, and our priority is for students to learn the skills of cheerleading in a safe, fun environment, gain self esteem and make new friends.

All of our staff are highly skilled, fully qualified professional USASF coaches, who hold enhanced disclosures and have first aid training.
