THE Toowoomba City Cheerleaders were at their acrobatic best when they helped launch the Toowoomba Hospital Kids Appeal at Clifford Gardens Shopping Centre.   All eyes were on the band of choreographed youngsters when they took to the stage on Saturday.   Toowoomba School of Dance students also performed a sneak preview of their major dance spectacular A Christmas Wish which is scheduled for November 24 at the Empire Theatre.   Performers from the Toowoomba Dancing Stars studio also showcased their skills before musician Josh Arnold and his choir of primary schoolers wrapped up the celebrations.   The hospital hopes to raise $60,000 from this year's appeal.
