ABOUT MONICA ALDAMA
One of the most successful athletic coaches in the country, Monica Aldama became an overnight sensation after starring in the Emmy Award-winning Netflix docuseries CHEER, which chronicles her tremendous leadership in building one of the country’s most successful cheerleading programs from the ground up. Monica is heralded as a pioneer in the world of cheer, one who combines her sharp, high-achieving mindset, business acumen, and tremendous empathy and dedication to her students, to set the bar ever-higher.
Celebrated for her hallmark phrase, “You keep going until you get it right, then keep going until you can’t get it wrong,” Monica is her students’ biggest advocate, always encouraging them to be the best versions of themselves. She has been with Navarro College for over 26 years and has led the cheer squad to win 14 National Championships.
Profiled in The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, Oprah, Women’s Health, and more, Monica is a role model and paragon of fierce leadership. A true force and inspiration that has captured the hearts of the world, Monica brings her empowering messages on leadership, resilience, teamwork, and success to audiences worldwide. She also shares messages of inclusivity and acceptance, drawing on her experiences working with racially diverse, LGBTQ+, and low-income students in an insular, small town.
Monica attended the University of Texas at Austin, where she earned her B.B.A. in Finance, and the University of Texas at Tyler for her M.B.A. She was inducted into the inaugural class of the Navarro College Hall of Fame in 2019 and was a contestant on season 29 of Dancing with the Stars. She has expanded her business ventures by partnering with BlackSleeve Media to develop a first of its kind cheerleading app that includes games, virtual competition, podcasts, industry events and much more. Monica also published her first book, Full Out, which became a #1 AMAZON Bestseller in three categories. Full Out is available now.
The Emmy-winning breakout sensation is back and the stakes have never been higher. As Season 2 opens and the buzz around their newfound stardom threatens to alter the dynamic of Navarro Cheer, the team finds no amount of press frenzy could compare to the challenges they must face when COVID-19 upends the 2020 cheer season and a serious criminal accusation is levied at one of their teammates. Against that dramatic backdrop, the 9-episode season expands to showcase Navarro’s fiercest rival: Trinity Valley Community College. As with the Navarro team, TVCC has a charismatic coach and breakout stars whose struggles, triumphs and stories extend far beyond the mat. As both teams push for the 2021 championship in Daytona, familiar faces take compelling detours and new contenders make a name for themselves. Cheer Season 2 is directed by Greg Whiteley (Last Chance U) and produced by One Potato Productions and Boardwalk Pictures.
