TELLURIDE – A new brood of budding young gymnasts have spent hours perfecting their tumbling and aerial tricks that they will perform this Friday for the community.
The Telluride Academy Gymnastics program is bigger than ever, this year boasting a whopping 85 students who range from toddlers to high schoolers. They’ve been practicing since September, with floor, bar, beam, vault, and rings routines ready for the spotlight.
“For the older competitors, this offers great stage performance time to get them ready for competition” later in the year, says Gymnastics Program Director Teresa Brachle. And for the younger tumblers, it provides a venue for showing off what their little bodies have learned to do over the course of 12 weeks of gymnastics training.
Approximately 40 of the Academy’s gymnastics program participants will perform routines this Friday, at the Telluride Middle/High School cafeteria, at 4:30 p.m. Levels 1 through 4 as well as the boys gymnastics group will all perform routines in the different disciplines.
In its third year, the Telluride Academy Gymnastics Program has again swelled in numbers, this session adding new classes for children ages 2-3 and 3-4. Friday’s performance marks the end of the fall session of gymnastics; Brachle will begin taking registrations for the next session, which begins January 5, next week.
