"The Twinkles: Chasing perfection" - Meet The Twinkles. They are competitive cheerleading's elite. This group of 8-12 year-old girls compete at the highest level for their age group. They mix tumbling, modern cheerleading and precise choreography to create a mind-blowing two-and-a-half minute routine that seems impossible for athletes this age. Follow them through the season - as routines are built and re-built, as they balance a grueling schedule with family life, as The Twinkles chase perfection.
