Acrobatics, Tumbling & Dance
Skyview Team Programs
Skyview Teams and the Athletes' Theater Company offer children the opportunity to pursue gymnastics to a more advanced level, to participate in USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic competition, and to perform on National and International stages. The challenges and rewards of making a serious commitment to the sport are incomparable. Gymnastics is a difficult and beautiful sport, with lessons to teach about teamwork, responsibility, perseverance, and the power of a positive attitude. Gymnasts are among the strongest and healthiest of all young athletes - physically and mentally. It is our goal to give every athlete the opportunity to excel, and to do so in a positive, nurturing atmosphere.
Coached by Diane Floyd
Acrobatic Gymnastics is a spectacular sport which combines the athletic prowess of Tumbling and Artistic Gymnastics with the grace, artistry and presentation of dance. Athletes compete in pairs, trios and fours, performing in one, two or three events depending on their level. Balance Skills highlight the athlete's strength and flexibility, while Dynamic Skills include daring throws, pitches and catches in choreography punctuated by high-flying tumbling.
The Skyview Acrobatic Gymnastics team was originally created by Diane Floyd to challenge the members of her Gymdancers Performance Team. She was honored by USA Gymnastics in 2004 with the National "Rookie Coach of the Year" award, and led a trio of Skyview acrobats to International competition in Belgium, France, and Portugal before stepping back to focus on World Gymnaestrada and Gymdancers Teams. Dozens of Skyview acrobats have claimed State, Regional and National Championships over the years. We hope to build a new competitive team for the 2017-18 season, so if you are interested, please let us know.
The Skyview Artistic Team proudly participated in the 2017 Pink Invitational, Philadelphia, PA.
