The Xcel Team classes are the natural progression up from our Rising Stars program. Gymnasts train twice per week in classes that are 1-2 hrs long.
Qualification: Gymnasts must have an understanding of basic rhythmic gymnastics apparatus handling, as well as Level A and B body skills, in order to join the Xcel Team. If you are unsure if your child qualifies for an Xcel Team class, please email us with a short video of your child’s best attempt at: splits, bridge (from standing if possible), cartwheel, any balances, turns, and jumps she knows, any apparatus handling she knows. We will review your video and get back to you with our class and level recommendation.
