Cajun Pride Allstars was created by Amanda Dauzat on March 23, 2016 in Marksville, LA. Amanda was inspired by the positive impact cheerleading has had on her life. In creating Cajun Pride Allstars, her goal was to spread the many great benefits of the sport of cheerleading to children in the Avoyelles Parish area.
Amanda founded Youth Alive Cheer and Youth Alive Athletics in Denver, CO. There she mentored and lead a coaching staff and teams to be featured in 9 News Denver, Your Hub Publications, Cheer Professional Magazine and earning 2 National Titles. After 7 wonderful years she has packed up and moved back to Marksville, LA to be closer to family which is of great importance to her. It is her goal to bring a great program to serve kids in the area where it all began for her, Marksville, LA. She is a the owner of Cajun Pride Allstars. She knows that the teams here will be stronger than ever. Let's go Cajun PRIDE!
For Cajun Pride Allstars, this is only the beginning of a great story. We would love for you and your family to be a part of it.

Amber is originally from Cottonport, a mother of 3 amazing boys, and happily married. Some
of her fondest memories are from cheering, dancing, and gymnastics. She recently
got out of real estate and MMA training after 3 years. The
confidence and strength it gave her is immeasurable!
About my class: I
encourage the children to push themselves and talk kindly to themselves. Words
are powerful and while learning a new skill, phrases like "I can't"
or "I'm horrible at it" simply won't stick in my class. I encourage
the girls to cheer each other on and I try to motivate them to believe in their
abilities. With my knowledge, along with pure love for sports, I focus on
correct form and strength to prevent injuries and have their skills looking
