Our Coaches

All our coaches are qualified, insured and checked. Our senior coaches have a degree in dance or similar discipline as well as teaching experience. Our wonderful junior coaches are cheerleaders who are building on their skills and working towards coaching their own teams. We even have girls who now run their own squads - they were so confident in their training at Artemis! 

Questions to ask your senior coach: Where did you train? What level did you compete at? What have you won? How long were you training at your highest level? Have you been to or qualified for Worlds?

Gemah Sanger

Head Coach and Program Director

Gemah (BGU) has 27 years of cheer experience behind her. Her mum co-founded the legendary Bees squad in Bracknell in the 1990's and she travelled the world with them! She has taken part in the Worlds on multiple occasions, won nationally and internationally. 

She has been coaching for almost a decade, and is about to become a judge, and soon to be a trainer of other coaches. 

Gemah is passionate about Cheer and dance, and is a choreographer and movement director for Artemis Studios bringing home 100's of trophies and awards with her teams.

 

In her other professional life - she works on feature film sets (such as Dr Strange). 

Charlotte Allen
