Mid American Pompon, Inc. was founded in 1979 by Karen Blazaitis to give pompon team members the opportunity to learn routines in a positive environment and compete at a level of quality, while building self-esteem, outstanding skills and team unity. Operations are currently under the direction of Julie Hobbs-Julian.
Mid American Pompon reinforces the values of positive self-image. By setting guidelines that promote non-seductive or suggestive movements and routines, Mid American camps and competitions feature athletic-based pompon and dance routines. These routines encourage good posture and proper form; precise rhythm and timing; excellence of formations and transitions; showmanship; creative and visual choreography; outstanding kicklines and jump skills; and much more.
