Bravo (For an excellent performance) The cheer leader says: "That deserves a Bravo ! We'll do this in a circle." He then                                                    proceeds to have one end of the circle start with the 'BRR' sound and proceeds to point around the circle while they do the 'AVOOOO' sound.
