WHAT IS STOMP & SHAKE CHEERLEADING?
Stomp & shake is a referent for an African American originated style of cheerleading (first mention of these cheers that I've found is early 1970, but most of the earliest mention found is mid 1970s, the same time frame as the first documentation that was found for foot stomping cheers.
Although there are some male stomp & shake cheerleaders, most of the squads consist of females. The synchronized, choreographed routines that the squad does while chanting include upstomps foot stomping movements. ("Upstomps" are "high kicks" such as those popularized by Black University marching bands). Those cheerleaders also performed "jigga pops", a rhythmical, fast double shake of their hips that is best shown off when the cheerleaders wear pleated cheerleader skirts.
