Well, it looks like the dance & cheer competitions are here to stay for quite a while at The Walt Disney World Resort. As part of the new ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex coming to the resort, yesterday it was announced that a new indoor, flexible design sports venue was being built as part of the complex, particularly with dance and cheer competitions in mind. these competitions often result in large crowds at the Value Resorts at the Walt Disney World Resort. It’s also good to check in advance and see if any large competitions will be coinciding with your vacation dates!
As reported by the Disney Parks Blog:
In February we announced that Walt Disney World Resort plans to build a new sports venue atESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Today, we’re excited to give you a first look at the design of the new state-of-the-art venue.
The new indoor sports venue, which will be adjacent to the Jostens Center, will feature a flexible design that can morph from one large competition space capable of seating more than 8,000 fans to as many as four separate competition areas. It will be so flexible that it can be configured to host a variety of other sports, such as basketball and volleyball, as well as concerts.
It will be the only venue of its size in America that is specifically designed with cheerleading and dance competitions in mind, offering special warm up and practice areas as well as spaces for judges and officials.
The facility, expected to be complete within the next 18 months, will perfectly complement the growing number of prestigious cheerleading and dance events at Disney. Currently, the sports complex plays host to nine cheerleading and dance competitions, including six elite Varsity-produced events such as the USASF Cheerleading and Dance Worlds held each spring.
ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex was already a major player in the cheerleading and dance world, but the construction of this massive new indoor venue means that the sports complex is poised to become the epicenter of cheerleading and dance events in this nation. And that’s enough to make any cheerleader do a round off Arabian into a round off double back tuck.
