In these uncertain times, the world needs all the joy it can get. That’s why Roland Pollard and 4-year-old Jayden are on a mission to spread smiles with their shared talent.
There’s nothing the father-daughter duo loves more than practicing epic stunts together. A former cheerleader himself, the Dallas, Texas, dad shared his passion with Jayden early (by that, we mean before she could even walk).
While their cheerleading videos on Instagram aren’t new, they’ve become especially popular in light of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
“It’s a scary time, but I always see the bright side to situations,” Roland told E! News. “I know that people need positivity in their lives, so I started posting heartwarming videos of me and my daughter stunting during the quarantine.”
We’re all impressed by what this pair can do. Not to mention, Jayden somehow isn’t afraid of falling! In one video, she stands straight up as her dad holds her with one arm and stays that way even when he tosses her from hand to hand!
Then she balances on one leg with both arms in the air as Roland continues throwing her!
It’s obvious this little one has a bright future in cheerleading if she wants it. She’s even caught the attention of Monica Aldama, the coach whose Navarro College squad was featured in Netflix’s “Cheer.”
“My newest commitment for 2034,” Monica wrote on Instagram. “Let’s go, Jayden! I’m getting your uniform ready.”
What a fun way to share quality father-daughter time! These cuties are amazing.
Watch the pair in action in the video below, and share their talent to spread the positivity. For more stories of joy and hope, check out the Coronavirus Good News Dashboard.
